Peggy was born in Shenandoah, on November 30, 1938, a daughter of the late Lila (McAndrew) and Gustav  Welna.  A graduate of the Immaculate Heart High School, she went on to become a registered nurse, with a career that spanned over 40 years.  She began her nursing career at St. Joseph's Hospital in Hazleton, then later worked at the State Correctional Institutions in Frackville and Mahanoy Township.  She ended her career as a traveling nurse and enjoyed the new friendships she made helping others in need.
