Peggy was born January 8, 1939, a daughter to the late Walter P. and Dorothy B. (Mayes) Streich.
She graduated from Ridgway High School in 1956. Following high school, she enrolled in training to become a Registered Nurse. She began her working career at WCA Hospital in Jamestown, NY. Following the birth of her first child, she made the choice to be a full-time mother. In 1961 after being born again, with the Lord directing them, Peggy and her family moved to Memphis, TN. In Memphis she worked at the Baptist Memorial Hospital as a Registered Nurse finishing in the coronary care unit. After moving back to the Erie area, she continued working as a Nurse at Pleasant Ridge Manor, instructing nurse’s aides in the field.

Peggy and her husband Jim were instrumental in the establishment of the Cranesville Christian Academy where she helped in the preparation of many lunches for the school children. She also worked closely with Awana Children’s Ministries. Peggy was musically talented and enjoyed playing the violin.
