During that time she met and would go on to marry David Romer on May 23, 1987 in Delano. Together Peggy and David made their home and raised their two daughters.

Peggy was a member of St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church in Bolingbrook and in her free time enjoyed cooking, baking, gardening and helping out with the yard.
