  1. I am so sorry to gear about Peggy’s death. We attended Greenwood, Oak Terrace and Woodlawn together. Her birthday was a day before mine. We always had a “March” Birthday Party for Peggy, Me, Timmy, Danny, and Mary Margaret. In our class and our brothers’ There was an Abington, Adair and a Arnold. My brother occasionally still makes contact with William. Peggy and I made a “jillion” dishes of beef stroganoff for the state 4-H Dairy Foods Demonstration contest when we were 14. Don’t know about Peggy, but I haven’t made it since! Please know that her “first grade friends” share your grief. I am sorry I did not get to know her as an adult. It sounds like she and I would have a lot in common.

  2. Clark & I were playing golf with Peggy and George when Peggy got her hole- in – one. We were almost as excited as Peggy. We will miss her on the course and as a wonderful friend.

  3. Sue Smith says:

    I am a friend of Mrs. Trosper and Cynthia. I am sorry about the loss of your family member.

  4. We kind of grew up together in Greenwood, La. Peggy was a wonderful person. I never saw her get mad or say one bad word about anyone, and always had a smile on her face. She was one of us “Greenwood Kids” who will be greatly missed.
