Peg the daughter of Cornelius and Emma (Bergfeld) Koch was born on December 13th, 1933 in their farm home near Bernard Iowa.

In May of 1955 Peg married Robert Hannig of Dubuque, Iowa. Together they built their house, a family with three sons and close lifelong friends over their marriage of 57 years.

Peg became a full-time homemaker and the matriarch of an otherwise all-guy household.  She could often be found working with her hands creating craft items or working in their flower or vegetable gardens.  She enjoyed spending time outdoors picnicking, camping and fishing with the family.

Woven through all these activities was her devotion to faith, family and friends.

She is survived by her sister Elaine Forest, of Clearwater FL; her three sons: Richard Hannig, of Dubuque, Ronald Hannig, of Stillwater, MN and Robert (Sandi) Hannig, of Garland TX; three grandchildren: Colin, Ryan and Sophia Hannig all of Stillwater, MN, along with many nieces and nephews.

Peg was preceded in death her parents Cornelius and Emma, husband Robert sisters: Ardella (Stainer), Ann (Lampe), Kaye (Kane) and Helen (McClain).

The family wishes to thank the staff of Finley Hospital, Grand River Medical, Dubuque Orthopedic Surgeons, Luther Manner - Grand Meadows, and Hospice of Dubuque for their wonderful care and kindness.
