Deepest condolences from the Anchor Point community to the family of Peggy Taylor. Peggy passed away last week in Seattle at the Seattle Burn Unit. Peggy was employed at the Sugar Shack as a cook and will be greatly missed by her co-workers and patrons. One never saw Peggy without a smile on her face. She was a gentle lady, a quiet person. The love she had for her children could be seen in her eyes when she looked at them. Your smile will be remembered by all who knew you, Peggy. May your journey be a peaceful one.
