Meet Carlton Senior Living spotlight resident, Peggy Del La Cruz – Peggy was born in Carnegie, Nebraska. She was the second to last child of 12 children. Peggy and her late husband, Faustino, were married in Reno, Nevada on New Year’s in 1950 which also happened to be her groom’s only day off. Together they shared four children, 14 grandchildren, and 16 great-grandchildren. Peggy and Faustino were married for almost 70 years prior to his passing in 2019.
Peggy worked at Joann Fabrics for 10 years. Some words of wisdom are, “go to church and never lie.” Some words to describe Peggy are friendly, happy, and loving. One thing that Peggy is looking forward to this year is going to Utah in May to visit her family and new twin great-grandchildren.
Peggy says that she enjoys living here at Carlton Senior Living Fremont very much. She’s very glad that her son picked this place for her and her late husband, and she’s pleased with her room because of the view. She enjoys playing Bingo and in her spare time, she does a lot of crocheting.
