She was a communicant of St. Mary’s of the Lake Church in Skaneateles and St John the Evangelist in Naples, Florida. She was a member of Skaneateles Country Club, Strand Sisters Club and Strand Sisters Solo Club. “Peggy” had wonderful lifelong friends locally, as well as, more recently at her home in Naples, Florida. She so valued and loved her friends and family, and all the fun times they had together over the years. “Nonnie,” as she was affectionately known by her grandchildren, was a wonderful loving grandmother who cherished them all.
