She was the third child born to Richard and Arlene Franzen of Arcadia. Peg graduated from Broken Bow High School in 1976. After graduation she started working at B-D. She made many friends in the 20 years she was employed there. Her next job was as a checker at Medicine Chest. When Pamida purchased Medicine Chest, Peg was hired. In the 15 years there she made many friends, not only with the employees, but also with her customers. Peg enjoyed collecting. She collected antiques, tins and miniatures. Where others saw junk, Peg saw beauty. She was also an avid reader, enjoyed cartoons, and trivia. She knew the theme songs to many old television shows as well as the actors and the characters they portrayed. Her long-time companion was “Miss.” Miss was there every night when Peg came home. She would listen to Peg tell her about her day and would over a loving purr in return. Their love was unconditional for each other.
