Bio and Links
Bio Photo Back in 1958 Peggy was part of The Our Lady of the Angels School fire here in Chicago, IL. She died in the fire. There were 92 children and 3 nuns who passed away. That day, I was in kindergarten at a public school in the town of Western Springs, Il. Peggy was 10 years old in the fifth grade. When I came home that afternoon my mother was crying. All she said was "Those poor children! Those poor, poor, children!" At that point I started to have a dream that was a continual reoccurring nightmare. It started while I was still in kindergarten and lasted all the way through the middle of my sophomore year in high school. The dream was continues. Long story short, years later I discovered that the dream I was having matched what happened to the boys in the fire! At the very end of every dream was a little face looking at me before I woke up. I discovered in 2008 that the face belonged to little Margaret Anne "Peggy" Sansonetti. It is the photo in the stripped dress with the crucifix around her neck. I continually pray for her every single day and shall continue do so through the end of my life! Peggy, I feel, brings out the goodness, kindness, and love in all people! May she never ever be forgotten. I feel that with my help she will always be remembered and prayed for! May God Bless you and your families, always!

Hello
Thank you so much for the beautiful words you left for "Little Georgie Blount" Also for sharing your story about "Little Peggy", I too often wondered if you were related to her. I saw the story of Little Georgie on here and felt a strange connection and felt the need to add him to my page. Some things we have no answers for I guess. Just wanted to let you know the idea to tell your story of Peggy and your childhood is amazing and well written. It gave me goosebumps and brought a tear to my eye. So sorry you had to endure such a recurring dream at a young age could not have been easy. You sound like a wonderful person and honoring her always is special.
Take care, Debbie

Peggy Sansonetti
Hi Jim,

I am honored to have stopped by Peggy's memorial. I never knew of the fire she, her classmates and the nuns perished in.

Peggy was an adorable, beautiful little girl who left us all too soon. I love the prayer on her prayer card from her wake.

The story in your bio about your recurring dream is amazing.

God Bless you and your family Jim.

Fondly, Clair

You made my day! Little Peggy died so many years ago, 1958, was she a relative of yours? I have added her to one of my virtual cemeteries so that I can remember to visit her on Birthdays and Angel Days.
