On 26 June 2021 Peggy Elizabeth Sween (nee O’Neal), 80, a life-long resident of Zihlman went to take her place with her Lord. Peggy offered her family, friends, and the Frostburg community a lifetime of service. Peggy was the daughter of the late Raymond and Dorothy (Hopkins) O’Neal.

For decades she served as a state election official and treasurer of the Allegany Methodist Church.
As she joins her God in Heaven, Peggy leaves behind her husband of 60 years, Gerald (Neil) Sween, daughter Regina (Gina), son David, and her 5 grandchildren Madison, Alexandra, Kyle, Josh, and Abby; and sister, Dottie Smith (Johnny) of Mount Savage.
