Can’t believe she no longer here. I will always remember her. Never forget after what she did for me. She took care of me not once Bt two times as a foster child. R.I.P.

Our sincere condolences to Peggy's family. Both my husband Dan Casey & I worked with Peggy at the Lima State Hospital/Oakwood Correctional Facility when she was an LPN. She had a good sense of humor. We remember even back then she was a foster parent. We are so sorry for your loss. Becky Hauserman

To the family of Peggy Moore: We wish to express our sympathy in the loss of your mother & my cousin. I remember her as a child & growing up as an active energetic person with a contagious laugh & always a sparkle in her eyes. We connected off & on through the years after I moved from WI to Ohio. A mother is a blessing & always leaves a hole in our lives but we can remember our loved ones & treasure the good memories. May God bless each of you and give you comfort. Sincerely, Stan & Virginia (Moore) Bear

Our prayers and condolences to family and friends during your time of bereavement. Peggy was a caring and loving person. She never met a stranger. We were foster parents for a National Agency, and she loved her children. She will definitely be missed. God delivers on time.
