Our deepest sympathy to Peany's entire family. She was such a nice person and had a heart as big as the world. She invited us into her home and heart. Back in the day of the "Eastside Sandwich Shop" Her and Arnie knew how to treat people. Peany will remain in the minds and hearts of all that knew her.

Peony. Was my classmate at Warren High School and graduated with her in the Class of 1951
Always glad when I would see her and her smiling face from time to time after graduation. Hadn’t seen her in awhile because of COVID-19.
She will be sadly missed, please convey my sympathy to her family and friends that will miss her dearly.
