I also had the privilege of working closely with Peggy for 21 years at Olive & BKD until she retired in 2004.  She was one of the most dedicated people I have ever worked with and she was extremely organized and efficient  Peggy taught me many things and helped me a great deal throughout my career and the career of many others.  Many of our clients knew Peggy and she always provided prompted and professional service.  Having been in the profession for almost 40 years now, I can tell you there aren't many like Peggy.  She made an impact on everyone she worked with and was always pleasant...even with dealing with some of us "green beans"!  We still have the U.S. Savings bond that she gave us for the firth of our first daughters (twins) in 1990.

I am glad she was able to enjoy a long life and my condolences to Beth Ann and Peggy's family that I know she cared deeply about.  She will be missed by many,

I was blessed to have worked with Peggy at Olive from 1988 to 1997 and I have fond memories of her!  She was always very helpful (especially when I was new) and she did great work for our clients.  I especially remember how we both started college savings plans (529) together (when they were a new concept) as mine was for my sons and hers was for her great grandchildren. We compared how they were doing and also survived a few market downturns together (I hope her GGC used these funds(.  My prayers go out to her family and heaven has gained a wonderful person.

So sorry to learn of the passing of Peggy.  She & Floyd were wonderful people.  I still remember the good Sunday dinners we shared with them, Floyd's folks, & Hap & Aileen when we were all kids.   Beth Ann, you have my deepest sympathy.

I worked with Peggy many years at Geo. S. Olive & Co. (now BKD LLP).  She was always pleasant, diligent, capable, and enjoyable to talk to.  I am sure her family will miss her.
