Peg was born in Appleton, WI, the daughter of Walter and Ruth (Brecklin) Haese. Later her family moved to Monroe, WI. After working various jobs, for the last 23 years of her working career, she worked for the State of Wisconsin, first for the Department of Motor Vehicles and then moved on to the University of Wisconsin-Platteville as a secretary. Peg had two special interests, dogs and ham radio. She had Whippets and belonged to a tracking club for dogs. Since Peg had moved to Shullsburg, she has had border collies as she and Paul have a flock of sheep. Peg was an avid DXer (contacting foreign countries) on ham radio. She and Paul spent eight vacations in St. Pierre and Miquelon on an island south of Newfoundland. This is where they did most of their contacting of foreign countries through ham radio.
