Condolence & Memory Journal

My sincere sympathy to all of Peg's family. I have many happy memories of Peg, we had some great talks, I learned a lot from her about family and life. Always so kind and generous and so talented. I loved all the little crafts she made and still have some of them. I just put the snowman Peg made for me on the front door. Here's to you Mrs. Pruss, a wonderful example of a strong independent woman! We could all learn something from you.I know I did. May God Bless you indeed!

To Don Stitzenberg and Barb Stitzenberg Sexton and Pruss Family:

My sympathy on the loss of your kind sister and mother, Peggy.

I remember our Pinehurst days and the wonderful family neighborhood we shared. I honor the life of your sister, mother and father, Al and Peg, and hope that our memories of front porch card games, fresh-baked weekly cookies from Mrs. S., and years of mutual school days will spark your memory of the Morsa family. We age together.

God bless all of you.

Deepest Sympathy to the Pruss fammily.
I feel blessed to have had Mrs. Pruss be a part of my life. She taught me how to sew at the age of eight above the West End Firehouse. And I also have wonderful memories of her being our playground teacher at Herschel Park. She was a wonderful person.
