I met 'Peg' at Sister James while my husband was a resident there. Peg was his table mate.. she was so sweet to encourage Jerome while they were at the table. My daughter would find songs on her phone and she would get Peg to sing, she remembered all the songs , what a joy.. You are blessed to have had such a sweet soul in your family. I will always have fond memories of your loved one.
I just now discovered that Peg Jones passed away. I worked with her husband Bob Jones in the clinic pharmacy for several years in the 1980s and 1990s. I also remember working with Jennifer and the fun we had in the pharmacy. My condolences to the family.
