Neighbor will miss the late Peggy Fossett
Peggy Fossett was my next-door neighbor in Beaver Creek for 28 years. She and her husband, Steve, were an institution in the Vail Valley and generously devoted much time and resources to the community.
They were "bigger than life" in so many ways: Steve being a famous adventurer, explorer and businessman, and as a couple, they were actively involved in the arts, sports and philanthropic projects. It was sad news, indeed, to hear that Peggy passed away on Oct. 17 in California.
Peggy was a good neighbor, and I would be remiss not to mention that she was always there when she was needed. She would be the first person to show up with food, clothing and blankets for the needy. She stood by when someone in the house might be sick or recovering from sports surgeries. She was there to comfort when a beloved dog died — even tried to help procure a new one.
I cannot enumerate all her contributions just to our little neighborhood. She was a generous person. She will be missed.
