It is with sadness that we have learned that Peggy has passed away. Peggy ran the blog when it was known as ‘Peggy’s Blog’ for a considerable time and kept many fans informed of news regarding Dame Shirley. She made the blog popular and many fans loved to read her reports. She will be sadly missed by all.
I sat next to Peggy at Faenol which was the last concert Peggy saw Shirley. She was thrilled to be seeing her idol once again after following Shirley since the early years. Although it was terrible weather there was no way she was going to miss the show even though she laughed and said she hoped we didn’t all catch pneumonia after sitting in the terrible rain. She was a lovely lady and spoke excitedly about Shirley and about the blog (it was Peggy’s Blog) then. She said she loved that she was able to bring things to fan’s attention. Obviously we spoke very little during Shirley’s performance but after ‘You Needed Me’ she turned and said ‘That’s why I Love Shirley … such emotion!’.
Peggy we dedicate this performance to your memory.
Rest In Peace.
