Condolence & Memory Journal

I lived across the street from the Dallmanns when they lived in Geist Landing. The current owner of their home just happened to see her obituary. I am so shocked and saddened. Peggy was such a joy and always a bright light in anyone's dark day. She was witty and always had such a big smile. I actually saw her a few years ago at the Fair Grounds representing IU. We talked for a while and I was so glad to see her and catch up on her family. I'm sure her loss is as painful today as it was in Nov. 2016.

I met Peggy 4 years ago when I moved to our neighborhood. Instantly, she was a great neighbor and became a great and wonderful friend. Her smile, laughter and personality were so inviting. I will miss her so much. May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

Lots of memories have flooded my heart today. I saw Peggy for the first time since high school at our 40th class reunion and we talked like we saw each other everyday. What a sweet and kind person she was. Prayers for all of her family.
