  4. Peggy Allen says:

    Peggy was one of the most loving and kind caregivers, with whom I have had the privilege to work during my time at TJ Samson. When our patient census would be overflowing, necessitating that patients be placed in the hallways, Peggy never allowed the busy atmosphere to prevent her from providing only the best of care to all of our patients. Her quiet whit and the laughs our work teams shared energized even the most chaotic shifts. I am truly blessed to have had her in my life and I will forever treasure our great memories. .

    One of my favorite memories of Peggy was when she visited her son David in Seattle, and he invited a few of us to join the two of them at a Seattle Mariners game. She had her baseball hat on, was chatting happily with David and all of us, and was taking in all the sights and sounds of a day at the ballpark.Peggy may have been a lifelong Dallas Cowboys fan, but that day she was a Mariners fan.

    Kathryn and I send our best wishes from Seattle. We’re very sorry for your loss, and we hope your family finds peace during this difficult time.

    What a joy it was to know such a sweet lady. I first met Mrs. Peggy where I worked as a meat manager at Happy Valley Houchens. She was a very loyal patron for many years with Houchen’s. Seems like she knew everyone in the store, It’s funny,I could always hear her talking and laughing from the first isle to the last. I always made it a point to get my fair share in too.She had a beautiful smile and laughter that just seemed to illuminate all around her. I do think Heavenly Father had a very special place in His heart for her, I know I did. To the family I offer my condolences and prayers in the days that lay ahead.May you find peace and comfort in knowing this wonderful lady lived a wonderful life surrounded by family and friends. She truly will be missed.
