I received the email below from HHS '51 classmate Alice Schmidt Mullen who was a close friend of Peggy. I remember Peggy as a sweet girl with a very winning smile. She will be missed. Thank you for the heads up, Alice.


Dear Tom,

We just lost another classmate......Peggy Petry Oszvart. She was a very close friend.

I saw it in today's obits and am very saddened by it. She was my buddy from before Reception Grade in Farmingdale School. We went all through school together and went to the same church.
Our mothers used to take turns walking us to Farmingdale School every day. They did that until we went to on to the 4th grade in Greenwood School.
She and I lived across the street from each other on Norway Ave. She was the one who took me to get my driver's license and asked me to be in her wedding party.
Very sadly, we lost track of each other after I'd married and moved down here. Several times I looked for her by way of the computer but couldn't find her, so I thought that she'd probably moved away..........and there she was......still in Mercerville, all of this time.
