On May 7, 1977, Peggy married Willard “Red” Bridgeman in Onawa, Iowa. The couple settled down in Ute, Iowa, where Peggy and Red bought the local Ute Hotel & Lounge, which they owned and operated for several years. The couple also purchased the old local gun shop which they enjoyed remodeling into their home. For many years Peggy was employed as a clerk at Ute City Hall until her health prevented her from working.
