I will always remember Peggy with fond memories that we shared at Ellis's Jewelry. She helped me settle in when I was first hired and after when we became good friends. I always thought of Peggy whenever I passed the store. I will miss her very much. My heartfelt condolences to her family. Frances Duggan

Peggy was such a sweet lady and I cherished knowing her. She helped make me a better person. She was the light you gravitated to at Ellis Jewelers. They lost the brightest and biggest jewel when she left that store.
