Estel and his daughter Kirsten of Marietta, Ohio, Angela Estel of Fairmont and her daughter Skylar Moats of Fairmont; two great-nieces, Morgan Crowder and Chloe Gallo; and special friends, Tammy and Bailey Baker.
In addition to her parents, Peggy was preceded in death by her sister, Florence "Patsy" Estel; her brother, Harvey L. "Butch" Myers; a nephew, David Estel; two brothers-in-law, Wayne Estel and Joseph Nutter; and a great-niece, Heather Estel.
Peggy's family would like to thank the staff of St. Barbara Nursing Home for their outstanding care of Peggy during her three-year stay. They became family to her.
