  6. A small book could be written about Peggy Ramsey….about her loving kindness to everyone, her dedication to her Lord, her family, her Sunday School class and her church. To those of us who knew her, we all knew she was a real treasure. Thoughts and prayers to the family who will miss her most of all.

  7. Worked with Peggy all those years and she was a most delightful person. Even if you felt down for some reason she would soon pick you up again. It was a delight having her in your department or area. I am sure the family feels really proud of her. I was sorry to hear that she had passed but it brought back all the good memories. Sorry that I will not be able to attend the services because I recently had a small stroke and still recovering.

  9. Peggy was one of the sweetest, most kind and gracious ladies that I have ever known. She gave me my best friend who shares her qualities and she will live on through her children who she loved dearly. I never saw her without a smile on her face and deep concern for others. She was truly a faithful servant and child of God. I know Heaven is sweeter, but she will surely be missed. I’m so thankful that we will see each other again, but until then, I think she would want everyone sharing the same joy she brought to others. I loved her so much and I am praying for you, sweet Pam, and all of your family. May God wrap his loving arms around you and bring you peace that can not be explained. I love you all!! Jane

  11. Peggy was the genuine article. She laughed and played practical jokes, a very appealing trait she had. I remember so many Thanksgivings when Peggy and her family would bring me into their fellowship. Peggy had a heart of Gold, a smile that would melt icebergs, and a warm loving heart. I am so blessed that our paths crossed in this life. Someday soon I hope to be in her presence again. Peggy contributed a terrific family to our community. God Bless you all,
