Peggy Sue, daughter of Walt and Eula (Brewer) Wimer, was born July 27, 1952, near Onawa, Iowa. She grew up on a farm outside of Ute and graduated from Ute High School where she excelled in basketball.

In 1971, Peggy was united in marriage with Gale Steinbach. Three children were born to this union. The family made their home at Castana, Battle Creek and then Ute. Peggy and Gale later divorced.
