She has been married 49 years to John Lynch, a woodworking craftsmen and wonderful husband. Prior to moving to Estes Park, they lived on an island in Northern Minnesota running a summer resort and year round restaurant, so exploring commercial investments with clients is second nature to her.

Their son Chad is a computer whiz in Seattle, WA, and keeps Peggy on top of technology. He is also married to a computer whiz Michelle Wagner Lynch.
