Mary Ellen Matthews

In memory of Peggy Ann Matthews

My sister, Peggy Ann, was murdered on September 19, 1995, in Fresno, California, by the same gun that shot six other women — all who were just walking through Fresno. My little sister died at the age of 27. She was survived by Paul; Nina and Mary-Ellen (siblings), and our mom and dad. We go through tough times.
