    My sincerest condolences on the passing of your wonderful mom. She certainly was a “spark plug” and when she spoke…you listened. And what a laugh she had. To the two of you, the greatest, most caring and loving daughters that she could ever have. Never wavering and ALWAYS there for mom. Undoubtedly, she is very proud of you both. Good for you and treasure all of the beautiful memories that you both have. Godspeed Peg! Jerry Murphy

  • Tricia, Julie, and family,

    Auntie Peg will be missed terribly by all of us. I was so honored to have her as both an Aunt and Godmother. I will miss my conversations with her as she was so caring all the time. Most of all, I will miss her infectious laugh and great sense of humour. She cherished you girls, and always said she was lucky to have the both of you. Now she is reunited with her other loved ones, especially your Dad, and your brother Joey. Hope this brings some comfort for your loss.
