Peggy was born on May 29, 1960, the daughter of Phyllis Scudder. After tragically losing her mother at an early age, she and her brother Don were raised by their Aunt Flo & Uncle Lloyd Scudder.
She graduated from Rocky in 1979. Peggy enjoyed bartending and often called the Mainliner and Rick & Kathy’s, her homes. After marrying the love of her life Timothy Shew, in 1999 she became a foster parent and helped care for several children.
Peggy had the 3 best dogs in the world, whom she loved dearly. She loved working in her garden, spending time with her friends and as anyone will tell you, she loved talking on the phone. She hated saying no to anyone and would always try to help in any way she could. She had her Grandma's "heart of gold" and her Aunt Wanda's sense of humor!
