Peg was a 1971 graduate of New Bremen High School. She then went on to further her education at the former St. Elizabeth School of Nursing in Dayton. Later in life, she completed training and became certified as an EMT-3. She worked at Dannon in Minster for 20 years, moving into EHS as a Safety Manager before working for Medcor for 18 years as a paramedic in Oregon and Nevada, and later in Washington, DC. She also was a member of the New Bremen and Ft. Loramie EMS and was proud to volunteer her time as a medic. Her passion for caring for others led her to volunteer for the American Red Cross on the Ohio disaster response team where she assisted in the kitchen on numerous missions most notably in New York City in the wake of 9/11. Her loving spirit and quick wit welcomed many friends into her life, from her neighbors, to her “train friends”, colleagues and many others. She enjoyed taking cruises, road trips and shopping – and was notably talented in interior decorating. She also fiercely loved her children and grandchildren and adored spending time with each of them.
