A graduate of Eastern Mennonite College, Peggy was a creative gardener, passionate about plants and flowers, was an exceptional cook and loved hosting people in her home. She also was an avid card player and was involved in a local card club. One of her greatest pleasures was attending sporting events and activities in which her grandchildren were involved.

Dyer of Cornwall, PA and five grandchildren, Tarius Jackson, Myles Jackson, Diego Jackson, Elijah Dyer and Maiah Dyer; a sister, Elizabeth J.

Linda Adams

I have such wonderful memories of our times together in college. One little story epitomizes who you became as a couple...soon after you were married, a guy was struggling with his college payment. You paid his bill to enable him to stay in school. Shortly after that, you went to your hometown for a weekend and your church gave you a love offering that was almost exactly the same amount. This did not surprise you; you accepted it with gratitude and grace saying something to the effect that God's blessings are intended to be shared. I was the recipient of many of those blessings in the form of delicious meals Peg cooked, produce from your very first garden, wonderful conversations, and so much more. I am praying for God's comfort for you, Darryl, and for your family. With love, Linda Adams
