She was a loyal and dedicated VOICE Foundation Key Worker, and was recognized as “the veteran who set the standards for all the newcomers” and “most valuable asset” in the industry. -So much so she was recognized countless times for the Customer Service Excellence Award by the Las Vegas and Visitors Convention Authority; A loyal sister in the Supreme Emblem Club for many years.

Peggy, a talented Artist, Model, Restaurant Owner, Hairdresser, Waitress and Mother will always be remembered for her kind and loving heart, gentle side and her infectious laughter.

Grandma there’s so many things that I wish I could tell you and regret the fact that we didn’t spend more time together while you were here. Know that I love you and miss you so very much. I know that you’re watching over me and at times I can feel your presence with me. I know I have my whole life ahead of me, but I do look forward to seeing you again in heaven.

This year CHRISTmas will have a whole new meaning for us. Heaven had gained a genuine angel. Each day that goes by I realize your not just a phone call or Face Time away and brings tears to my eyes knowing all that you went through this past year. Mom I have always loved you, always will and will carry memories of you in my heart forever. I will see you again someday until then I know your always watching over me. Your daughter Suzette

My thoughts are with Suzette, Tony and Andy at this difficult time. I know how much your mother was loved and treasured by you Suzette. You are correct, she is watching you from above, and I know how proud she is of you too. You were a wonderful daughter and you will be together again. Love you!
