Friends and family say goodbye to a Wichita woman who died during a controversial movie.
Peggy Scott's tragic death made headlines worldwide, after she collapsed during the Wichita premiere of "The Passion of the Christ." On Monday she was remembered by family and friends.
Hundreds came out to pay their last respects to Peggy Scott, who died of an enlarged heart while watching the controversial movie.
Pastor Jeff Gannon says, "Peggy's life and Peggy's death came together in a poignant moment and gave a portion of the Wichita community a glimpse of heaven."
Peggy was remembered by friends as classy, successful, a prankster, caring, genuine and loving.
Dick Harlowe said, "Peggy had an enlarged heart. Those of us who knew it went "Duh!" Peggy was all heart and she would open it to anyone she met."
John Naramore said, "Peggy was one of the few people that on a regular basis would say to me, ''How are you doing?" And she was one of the few people that when she said it I knew she wanted the answer."
A memorial fund has been established in her name. It will be used to establish a scholarship in her name.
