Peggie is survived by her local sissy and BFF, Marie; her children, Little Bill & Penny, Melanie & Logan, Mandy & Shannon, Robert, Jamie, Stephanie and Lisa; by those who called her Nana: Billie, Jesah, Shelby, Gabe, Devynn, MyKenzee, Sheyenne, McKala, Liam, Zaiha, Lexy, Marquee, Hannah and Jayden; her siblings: Ronnie, Charles, Joe, Janet and Libby. Aunt Diane, Anita, Jim, Cindy, Joe and Michelle; the Clan: Sue & Carl, Johnny & Retha, Pat & Cheryl, Bob & Linda and Bob Watt, Jr., Kevin Bell and the rest of the Vest Clan, and all whose lives were touched by her,
“forever and a day”.

    To the Vest family. Peggie was my online friend and game buddy for the past few years on Facebook.
    I will dearly miss my friend. Peggie’s memory will live on in my heart forever. What a special lady who brought joy to my life and the life of my sweetheart.

    I can’t wait for the day we can laugh together again, you always had a smile on your face and something sassy to say. You are missed more than words can ever express. I know you will always watch over us and comfort us and let us know you are there. My thoughts and prayers to all she knew and touched and especially to her family.
    Jesus said, “Now is your time of grief, but I will see you again and you will rejoice, and
    no one will take away your joy.”
    John 16:22
