    So sorry for your mom’s passing. She was more then just a sister in law to me and help me when I fought Leukemia. We walked the Relay also. I will miss her always. She fought a hard battle.

  5. The family of Peggy….I am truly so sorry for the loss of your mother. I just flipped through the online obits and found that she had passed on Oct 26th. My heart breaks as I sit here typing and telling you that I knew her. While working for Personal Touch she had the opportunity to come and be with my grandmother Wilma Cowan. Those were fonder times in my life. Your mother came to know Lana Bender and her husband Ray. My ex husband, Greg Bender and myself spent every weekend at Lana’s home because gram’s lived there. Peggy was there often. She had a deep compassion for my grandmother. She loved all of her consumers. She was an empathetic person. She was kind….
    May the good lord bless your family with fond memories of your mother. Memories…are the thoughts that keep her alive in our hearts.

    Yours truly,

    Patty Bender
