I taught at Roanoke Memorial School of Professional Nursing when Peggy was the Pediatrics Instructor. She was an icon, always professional in every way from dress to actions. She had a great love for her family, students and patients. May you be comforted in the loss of your Mother knowing she left a Mark on Nursing Education.

Peggy was a wonderful nurse.
Her devotion and care for Thomas were exemplary.
The world has lost a wonderful person, but I am confident that she has gone on to something better.
She and Mary Beth are in my thoughts and prayers.

Gene Godwin, M.D.

Peggy was one of the reasons I chose pediatrics as my specialty to work in for many years. She was an excellent, kind instructor. My sympathies to her family.
