  3. Reno NVPeggy and I were friends from Girl Scout days through junior high and VCHS. As adults, we saw each other just about every year when I was at our lake cottage. She was such a special, non-judgmental person. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

  4. Placentia CAI played sports with Jim and studied with Peggy @ Valley City High School. We stayed in touch throughout the years and had good times at Lucy’s [Merrett] lake Melissa cottage. Fond memories for “days gone by”

  5. Valley City ND
    So sorry to hear of Peggy’s death. I was one of her classmates in high school. My maiden name is Grotberg. She was such a fun and loving person, had so many friends and she and Jim made a wonderful pair. I never met any of her children, however.

    The last time I saw her was at our last ALL FORTIES REUNION in 2000. Class of 1947.
    May she rest in peace.

    To Peggy’s family:
    It is with much sadness that we send our sympathy in the death of Peggy. Peggy and I have been like sisters since the 2nd grade. I will truly miss our phone calls each birthday and Christmas and a few in between. Her memory will live in my heart, as I pray it will in all of yours.
    She is a special friend! May God grant you His peace in your sorrow.
