It was a shock to learn of Aunt Peg's passing, when a friend of my mother's sent the obituary. I wish we'd have known so we could have attended the service to be with Uncle Mo. I have wonderful memories of Aunt Peg making oyster stuffing at Thanksgiving, and her chocolate pie for dessert; of the special care she took with her thoughtful Christmas gifts; the different wire-hair terriers named "Jinx"; and, most of all just hanging out with Aunt Peg and Uncle Mo in the basement of the house on Berkeley in South Bend. Although we weren't actually related, Margaret Schneider was always "Aunt Peg" for my brothers and me. We will miss her.

Uncle Mo,

We were so sorry to hear of Aunt Peg's passing. Mike has such wonderful childhood memories of you and Aunt Peg. Please know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.

Love, Mike & Karin Friend

I along with the ladies from the beauty shop (Shotsie's Coiffures) extend our deepest sympathy to you and family.

Throughout the many year that I had the pleasure of doing Pegs' hair and all the laughs we shared with the other ladies will always remain great memories.

Hank & I will always remember the cruise vacation together and the meeting of Rona & Alan. We had a wonderful time.

She will be greatly missed by you, but will also be missed by those of us who had the opportunity to know her as I got to do.

God keep you in his care and our prayers go out to you in your loss.
In Friendship and Sympathy..
