Guest Margaret (Peggy) Cutlip, May 13, 2024 (#140)

Margaret (Peggy) Cutlip, grew up on a Garretts Bend, West Virginia, tobacco farm even prior to the 1950s. Peggy's story of agriculture in that part of America tells of events fascinatingly unique to the agricultural life lived by North Dakota's The Pfeiffer Sisters.

Now living in the Green Hills Retirement Community, Ames, IA, Peggy recalls baking a "funeral pie" as well as the purpose of the unique architectural design of two side-by-side front doors leading into their home.

In the 1950s, when Peggy delved into her profession as home economist with the Monongahela Power Company and Frigidaire Appliances, she faced some trying days when teaching the public to use "new-fangled" appliances of that era—electric clothes dryers and microwave ovens.
