My deepest sympathy goes out to all members of Peggy's family. I have had the pleasure of knowing Peggy for the past 5 years at Heartland. Having sat outside my office for most of her tenure at Heartland we had many conversations on a variety of topics over the years. I miss the eye roll that I would get whenever I would bring up something off the wall or every New Year's Eve when I would say, "See you next year" as everyone left for the day. Peggy always had stories about Tyler and Kyle and you could tell how proud she was being their mom. She was a tough cookie at the office, but when it came to family, especially her little boys, you always saw the tender soul behind that tough exterior. She was so excited when she had come into work recently after working at school one morning - she was able to sign up to chaperone a field trip at the Children's Museum on Friday, 4/24/09 and indicated that it was the first time that she was ever able to do that. Another day that meant a lot to her recently was when Tim brought his motorcycle at lunchtime to pick Peggy up for a little ride and to go to lunch together. It is all too easy for us to go through life thinking that there will be another day to be able to do things such as the two examples I mentioned, and I am so glad that Peggy was able to enjoy these moments so recently. Peggy is and will be deeply missed at Heartland. I will hold my memories of Peggy close to my heart and will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers always.

To Peggy's family especially her sons and husband, I am Mathew Yost's older sister. I send my deepest sympathies to you at this difficult time. Know that I am praying for you and your whole family as we travel together on this tragic road. God will be our Comforter and the Lifter of our Heads during this time of sorrow. The most important thing is to remember the good times and celebrate the time you had with Peggy, your mom. God bless you all, Debbie Bitting
Ronald Helmrick left a message on May 3, 2009:
The last time I saw Peggy was some years ago. The little girl I knew from years past had bloomed into a beautiful, loving mother and wife. I am certain God is now watching over her. My condolences go out to all our family and friends.
Becky (Yost) Burg left a message on May 3, 2009:
My deepest, sincerest, and most heart-felt sympathies goes out to Peggy's husband, children, and family. My brother, Matt, also lost his life in that horrific accident. Words cannot express how sorry I am for your loss. While my family is grieving on our end, please know that you all are in our thoughts and prayers as well.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

My sincerest sympathies go out to Peggy’s family. Peggy and I attended school together and were roommates for a brief time in the 90’s. I regret losing touch with her over the years. She was a true friend, good person, and a beautiful soul. I am so sorry for your loss.
Dawn Sherrick left a message on May 2, 2009:
I am very sorry for your loss. I've worked with Peggy for the last couple years at Heartland. I will definitely miss her stories about the boys. She was an awesome person, and will be missed greatly.

May we all look towards our faith in God that though this is a time full of feelings and emotions that cannot be fully expressed with words, may we remember that God is with us always and watching over us. My sincere condolences and sympathy go out to all family and friends.

To the Bauman Family, My daughter goes to preschool with Kyle. While I didn't know Peggy well, I wanted to express my deepest sympathies for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you.
Judy Otto left a message on May 1, 2009:
My deepest sympathies to Peggy's family. I worked with Peggy and always liked talking to her about her boys. (having two boys myself - it was always fun to hear what they were getting into) You could always tell how proud she was to be a "Mom". I remember one of her sons having a birthday and she had made a special cake for him and was so proud of it! Peggy, your smile will be missed here at Heartland. God Bless you and your family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Sue May left a message on May 1, 2009:
My heart goes out to Peggy's family. Her smile brightened our days at Heartland. She will be missed. God bless all of you and keep you safe in His hands.
Mary Cowling left a message on May 1, 2009:
Nothing I can say will express the sadness I feel for all the people that are left to suffer the horrible loss of Peggy. Her sons, her husband, her family and her friends. I worked with Peggy at Heartland for the last five years and she laughed at my goofy nonsense and loved to tell me funny stories about her boys. I could totally relate because I have a boy myself and I knew she'd have many more stories to tell. My heart breaks to think that she won't be seeing those boys do the things that boys do anymore - or at least she won't be able to tell me about it. My thoughts will be with all Peggy's loved ones and especially her precious boys. I hope they know how much their mama loved them.
Anne Holaday Locke left a message on May 1, 2009:
Dear Tim, Red & Paula, I just learned of Peggy's passing this morning. You have my heartfelt condolences and the hope that all your special memories of Peggy will be a comfort. My best to you and your two boys. You will all be in my thoughts and prayers. With love, Anne

Thoughts & Prayers to the Bauman/Helmrick family. I had the pleasure of working w/Peggy for alittle over a year at Heartland. Neither of us would have guessed we'd know so many of the same people. Let alone they would be from the small towns we grew up in, which were only a few miles apart. The stories we shared & the "small town" talk we had will always bring a smile to my face. She was a special person & will be truely missed by all.
Tammy (Helbach) Groshek left a message on April 30, 2009:
I met her in the month of May In 1987 and in a very strange way We were to argue over “what else! A man. And realized we liked each other much more than Dan. She was so tall, beautiful and neat And to top it all off---she was totally sweet We spent lots of time together at Dewey to party We liked cheap beer and light Bacardi The warm bonfire and the straight talk with a friend We had hoped those days would never end She stood by my side thru marriage, kids, and divorce And took me out for a few drinks to heal me of course She taught me to smile and dance Even though I looked like I had ants in my pants There were so many girls named Peggy in my Life you see So we nicknamed her LEGS and that’s who she was to me She loved to sing Karaoke and dance to the beat You should of seen the dorks we would meet. Then we started to grow up and date real men. That’s when it happened---she met her perfect ten His name was Tim, he was quiet and shy He was such a really great guy I called him stud man and his face would turn red Boy did he ever turn Peggy’s head I married Todd and she laughed a lot But I knew one day Tim would put her on the spot They would marry and have two kids of their own And together they made a wonderful home The last time I seen her we drank and sang Jose Cuervo was the last song she sang to our gang On a hot July evening I hugged her goodbye Who would have thought that she’d make me cry? For the news of her death made me fall apart For not too many people have ever touched my heart I’ll always remember her smile and good cheer And I will salute her when I drink my next beer Who would have realized such a good friend I had gained Forever in my memory she will always remain
Don & Willy Schumacher left a message on April 30, 2009:
Gone from our sight: We're standing upon the shore. A ship at our side spreads her white sails to the morning breeze and starts for the blue ocean. She is an object of beauty and strength. We stand and watch her until at length she hangs like a speck of white cloud just where the sea and the sky come to mingle with each other. Then someone at our side says: "There she's gone." "Gone where?" Gone from our sight. That is all. She's just as large in mast and hull and spar as she was when she left our side and she is just as able to bear her load of living freight to her destined port. Her diminished size is in us, not in her. And just at the moment when someone at our side says; "There she's gone!" There are other eyes watching her coming, and other voices ready to take up the glad shout: "Here she comes!'

Tim - My deepest sympathy goes out to you and your boys. Peggy was a wonderful spirit and a very special person. Although I only met her recently through Vicky, I enjoyed getting to know her on our Door County weekend and know that she will be deeply missed by all who had the pleasure of meeting her. God bless you and your family.
Kristi Fogarty left a message on April 30, 2009:
I worked with Peggy at Heartland and talked with her quite often. She always had a story about her boys or the activities her family did together over the weekend. I'll miss my Monday update on how the boys were doing and the funny things they did and said. She was so proud of Tim and the boys, her face lit up when she talked about them. Peggy was was fun to be around and talk to. I will miss her.
Lisa left a message on April 30, 2009:
