Mrs. Peggy always had a smile and a sweet hello for anyone she met. Fly with the angels Mrs. Peggy.
I am blessed to have known Sister Peggy since my seminary days back in the 50's. She was truly a sweet Christian lady. Always faithful in the Lord's work along with her husband and family. Praying for all the dear family.
“Peggy always brightened with an anticipatory smile anytime anyone approached her. She has got to be one of the friendliest people ever. I loved her and even the pats on my cheeks that accompanied her hugs and greetings. Peggy was a peace maker and will be sorely missed at the family gatherings, the Church services and meetings and all of the places she visited. Love and prayers for Sandy, Gina, Lisa and especially Royce as well as the rest of the family. Janice and Wayne”

For most of my life I have known AND loved Peggy Grable. She was pure Joy. Always smiling and making others feel special. I know her life was not always easy but she showed others how to keep going and make the best of all situations. I consider myself a very blessed person for having the privilege of knowing Peggy Grable.
Mrs. Peggy welcomed me with open arms when I joined Antioch. Such a sweet lady. Prayers to her family.
There’s lots I could say about Peggy. But I will just say this one thing. I loved, loved, loved her laugh! ❤️
Dear Sandy & Family,So sorry to hear of your mother's passing. Debbie and I will be praying for you and your family.
Ms Peggy always greeted me with a smile & a HELLO HELLO & a big hug! How I so enjoyed choir with her! Wonderful Christian woman & sister in Christ and I will miss her dearly! I loved Peggy Grable! ❤️
Our hearts are saddened to learn of the home going of our dear sweet Peggy! There is no doubt she is with Wayne, and many other family and friends, and our wonderful Lord and savior Jesus Christ. She ran the good race and now is happy, healthy and has her reward. Billie and I are out of state, but you will remain in our heart and prayers.
We are saddened yet rejoicing because we knew her here and will know her there. She was my mother as I grew up in Antioch along with Monica Cook and Hazel Grable. Yep! It took all 3 to keep me on point. See ya soon Peggy.
Peggy was a ray of sunshine to whomever she was around. She will be missed!
