They raised there children with love and support. They went on many fishing trips to the river. They loved to travel to see family and spent many weekends going back to Peggy's home town to stay with her mother. Peggy finally felt more at home when she moved to the quiet town of Oak. They would go on gambling trips many which involved taking Barbara. She enjoyed anything outside. In shorts and a t-shirt with no shoes was what made Peggy the happiest. She enjoyed watching all her grandkids and great-grandkids grow. Going to auctions and collecting Oil Lamps was one of her many passions.
