Peg was born July 30, 1961 in Flandreau, South Dakota, to Roger and Dar­lene (Otto) Bauer. She went to school in Elkton, South Dakota. She had sev­eral jobs she enjoyed, with her last one being at Twin City Fan in Elkton, where she enjoyed her co-work­ers and made many won­derful friendships.
She was blessed with having two children, Kim and Heath. Peg loved being around family, her grand­children, hosting family gatherings and loved her coffee go-ers. She enjoyed keeping up with her soap operas and helping other residents at the nursing home. She had a sense of humor that many people enjoyed. She left a very large impression on people in a short amount of time when being somewhere.
In 2007 she suffered a massive stroke, which left her speechless and para­lyzed. She was very much admired for her strength, patience and courage over the past 10 years. Peg was a member of Our Lady of Good Counsel Catholic Church.
