John and Peggy enjoyed boating on the St. Croix River and traveling to New Orleans and various vacation destinations in Mexico and the Caribbean. John and Peggy found a love for Boxer dogs. They had rescued 3 over the years. Much of Peggy's day had been consumed by current dog Daisy. Peggy could often be found extracting "the baby" from under furniture for Daisy.

Peggy enjoyed working in her yard and spent summer months at Linder's Greenhouse. During the long winter months in MN, you were likely to find Peggy working on ceramics in her basement.
