Peggy Wells, 82, of Route 30, passed away Tuesday evening, December 21, 2021, at Glens Falls Hospital.
Born on July 19, 1939, in Indian Lake, she was the daughter of the late Burlin and Ivetta (Eldridge) McCane. She was a graduate of Indian Lake Central School.

Her enjoyments included any family gathering with her children and grandchildren. Camping trips to Hunter Mountain and Moose River Plains with the kids, motorcycle rides and lately, her Sunday car rides.
At Peggy’s house the coffee (strong) was always on, the candy jar full and plenty of sweet treats for her sweet tooth. She will always be remembered for being a straight shooter and being very strong willed even up to the end. Her home was always the family place. She will be missed.
She was predeceased by her parents; her husband; a sister; Jane Benton; a brother, James McCane.
