My sincere condolences to all of Peggy's family.I knew her from the dental office and truly looked forward to her visits. We always caught up on family, she loved her family so. It showed in her stories. From the grandchildren to trips with her sister, she certainly lived for those she loved. Selfishly, I'm so glad I saw her in January at the Mennonite home. We had a wonderful visit. There is no doubt she is in a more peaceful world now. I will keep you all in my prayers. Sincerely, Carol Geller

Dear Rosemary and Peg's family: My sincerest sympathy to you and yours. I met Peg through her sister Rosemary at some family affairs and times out with the girls. Stayed at her house for a weekend with Ro, she was so much fun and a wonderful hostess. Though she hadn't been well even then, she never complained and was always so upbeat. What a pleasure to be in her company. She certainly will be sorely missed by her loved ones and everyone she had touched, including myself. May she rest in peace. Willie

Dear Family of Peggy Dorsi, On behalf of Peggy's friends at Pulmonary Rehab I would like to extend our sincere condolences to you and your families. Peggy was always so hopeful and full of life and always laughed and had a smile on her face when she came into Pulmonary Rehab. She also had this incredible memory and never forgot details of a story that we may have discussed months prior. It was very evident her husband, children, and grandkids were the motivation that kept her going for so long. She loved life and it showed. We loved her and will miss her.
Sincerely, Lisa Bridge, Christine Greeninger and the entire Pulmonary Rehab Family

To Rosemary,Charlie, Denise, Bity and all family members who loved Aunt Peggy. I understand your grief and sorrow and know how painful this must be for all of you. I have fond memories of her when I was a child and she always had open arms for me as an adult. She was one special woman! I choose to believe that she is pain free and dancing in heaven with "Peggy Bayside"!(my mother). In time, may all of you remember the happy times you spent with her.  Much Love and deepest sympathy, Jean Philp
