Peggy moved from Lynchburg, VA to Virginia Beach, VA to pursue a career as a Telephone Operator with C & P Telephone Co. She was part of the team that was brought to Virginia Beach in the 1950’s to teach the residents at the oceanfront how to use the rotary dial telephone. She met and married William Frederick Stier, Jr. in Virginia Beach and the union brought forth four children, William Frederick, III, Steven Thomas, Donna Christine and Pamela Marie. She loved dancing, playing bridge and spending time at the beach.

What our families say...

In my opinion, there is no better facility in Virginia than Altmeyer Funeral Homes. Not only was Chris Sisler there to hold my hand every step of the way, his family members were holding the door on the day of the funeral to help and encourage me. I will never forget their grace. He led me and my family through the process as a personal friend and neighbor, and as the ultimate professional.
