Peggy Sue Piper, 50, of Corry, was called home to be with the Lord on Thursday, Dec. 3, 2009.
She went into cardiac arrest while at the Cleveland Clinic due to complications associated with scleroderma, which she battled for 18 years.
Peggy chose to donate her body in hopes the research could help others inflicted with this disease.
She was born Nov. 22, 1959, in Ogden, Utah, to Ramona (Westover) and Richard Piper.
Peggy is survived by her parents; her brother, Rich, and his wife, Laura, of Arizona; her sister, Donna Lessley and her husband, Tim, of Utah; her nieces and nephews, Aaron, Melissa, Shane (Marilee), Rocky (D’Nache), Jade and Ian.
