Peggy was born September 6, 1949, in Little Falls, the daughter of James and Frances (Dockendorf) Pint. She grew up in Fort Ripley township in Morrison County and graduated from Little Falls High School. Peggy married Warren Holsapple on July 13, 1968, and they were blessed to raise two boys. Peggy was a hard worker and liked being the cook at Brainerd High School for 27 years before she retired.
Peggy enjoyed living on their 80 acres in Fort Ripley; she especially liked to garden. She preferred to be outdoors – camping, fishing, and or working on the farm. Whenever she finished mowing the lawn, she commented how nice it looked and then grabbed her cat and dog and took them for a golf cart ride. Most of all, Peggy was a loving and caring woman who put her family first.

She was preceded in death by her parents; brothers, James and Bobby; sisters, Rosemary McCarthy, Janet Canterbury, and Geri Rudolph.
