I had the honor of teaching in "The Marguerite Bentham" room for many, many years. She taught me so much about English as well as dealing with even the most difficult 8th graders. She was a joy to work with and it saddens me to know she is no longer with us. She always had an infectious smile and I was so lucky to work alongside her prior to her retirement. RIP Peg,,,prayers to the family.

Dear Barb,Seamus and Family; Please accept my condolences on behalf of my brothers and sister. Your Mom was one of those special patient neighbors for all of us when growing up and her sense of humor and laugh... we'll always remember. You are in our thoughts and prayers and please take solace knowing how instrumental she was in the education and development of thousands of Oxfords' children. May God bless her, your father and all of you. Frank Samuelson and family

Dear Barb, Seamus and Children, We loved Aunt Peg dearly, and have always admired her for her gentle independence and caring way. May you find comfort in your love for one another, and in the many memories with her as she blessed your lives. Please know that we are praying for her and for her family. As you said, Barb, there's a musical reunion going on beyond the stars right now. If there is anything we can do for you please don't hesitate to ask. Sending love to all, Bridget, Rick, Celia, Aaron, Brooke & Spencer
