We received word that our BHS classmate, Peggy Hahn passed away this morning.
Donna Canzoneri Wray send an email with this message:
Hi Kathy, Thank you for being our go to person for keeping our classmates connected. I just heard from Krista Sanders, Peggy and Greg Sander’s eldest daughter, that Peggy Hahn passed away this morning. She suffered for many years with early onset Alzheimer’s like her mother did. John and I double dated with her and her first husband and also our classmate,Greg Sanders in high school. Their daughter, Krista was the flower girl in our wedding, and Facebook has kept us connected when Peggy stopped corresponding with us. The last time we were together was at her home in New Jersey during Hurricane Katrina in August, 2005. A few months after that Peggy started to decline. She wanted to be known as Rhiannon as an adult, but to me she will always be Peggy.
Yesterday Peggy’s daughter had reported that they had started hospice care since Peggy had refused any food for a week, but that she was at peace and not in any discomfort or agitation.
Our sympathies go to Peggy’s family. Please write remembrances in the comments section below.
- Even if you feel healthy, please try to stay at home as much as possible;
- In public, practice “social distancing” by keeping a 6-foot distance from others;
- Wash your hands with soap and water for at least 20 seconds—especially after being in a public place and after you have coughed or sneezed;
- If soap and water are not readily available, use a hand sanitizer that contains at least 60 percent alcohol;
- Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you sneeze. After doing so, immediately wash your hands;
- Avoid touching your eyes, nose and mouth;
- Take extra care to avoid exposing the elderly [THAT’S US!] and those with underlying health conditions to illness. Instead of visiting them, call; and
- Be sure to clean and disinfect frequently touched surfaces daily, including doorknobs, light switches, countertops, phones, keyboards, toilets, tables, handles, faucets, etc.
Catherine, thank you for relating that painful information about Peggy and Mike. I have wonderful thoughts of both of our classmates. Peggy was actually my first girlfriend in Junior High. I really had never kissed a girl until Peggy either. I remember a party at her house with her parents there of course, and we still “made out” on the couch. I can see by the pictures of her above that she only got more attractive as she matured. We remained friends through Junior and Senior High School. God Bless Peggy and her family. I am also so saddened to hear about Mike passing away, though I’m glad he did so in the place of his choosing and a beautiful place at that. I remember in Junior High we had a burping contest at lunch. Mike was always full of smiles and a hell of a lot of fun. I’m sure he will be sorely missed by many, many of his friends and family. God rest with you Mike and thanks for the memories.
Oh that’s sad news, Mike Shaw lived down the street from me growing up, went to same elementary, jr high and high school with him. I remember him.

Cathy, thank you so much for relaying this sad news about Mike and Peggy. Peggy lived around the corner from me, and we became instant friends in the second grade and all through elementary school. We drifted apart in junior high but reconnected in high school. Peggy was always a darling, and I’m so very, very sorry that she’s gone.
Rip, Peggy and Mike

Gotta say that it’s great that I’m still alive. Been hunkered down in my place in Olympia, WA. Taking care of myself & my dog & cat.

Rejoice & be glad in it”
I say that everyday.
