During this time she met Goldie (Duane) Hanson, and was married on November 10, 1951.They built a home in Fridley where they raised their children, Candi and Craig, and became a stay at home mom. Spending time with family was most important to her. She loved going to the lake, going to her grandkids' (Cody, Cortni, and Greta) activities, and spending time with her old neighbors and friends from her Fridley neighborhood. In 2000, they moved to a townhome in Coon Rapids allowing them to be closer to their family. Peg enjoyed spending winters in AZ at their home they purchased in 1988. Their time was spent playing many hours of cards, dinners, and sight-seeing with her siblings, in-laws, and out-laws. She enjoyed her collections of DeGrazia plates and figurines, Indian dolls, and bells. Peg started having health issues many years ago with breast cancer, bile duct cancer, and more recently lung cancer, and congestive heart failure.
