She was united in marriage to Zane Meier on December 20, 1950. During the first years of their marriage they lived in Kansas, Texas and Colorado while Zane served as a Medic in the US Army.

After the Army, they came back to Iowa and began farming in the Pomeroy and Fonda areas before settling back in Manson. Peggy grew up on a farm and continued farming her whole life before retiring in 1988.
