Twins community remembers beloved press box attendant Peg Imhoff

- She worked for the Twins for more than 40 years, becoming one of the team's longest employees.

On Thursday, Peg Imhoff was honored not just for her work directly on the field, but for her service to the fans.

“There aren't too many people in this ballpark that did what she did," said Twins TV Broadcaster Bert Blyleven.

During this game, it wasn’t a player or coach on people’s minds, but it's not a player or coach on people’s minds, but rather a person whose role was always more than just a job.

"The day we were with her in the Oncologist’s office, her first goal was to finish the season. That was more important than Christmas or anything else," said her son Jeff Imhoff.

Imhoff’s children knew this is where they had to come.

"Apparently everybody thinks of her as their mom, and we shared her," said her daughter Joyce Jakel.

For journalists and broadcasters, Peg was the person they saw almost every day in the press box.

And for 42 years, three ball parks and countless managers, anywhere the twins were was considered home.

"I have great memories of the old Met because that's where we grew up, that's where I went to my first ballgame and stuff," Jeff said.

So when peg stepped away to fight cancer this past August, something was lost.

"She was in the hospital and the visitors…the flood just never ended," Joyce said.

And when Peg passed away on Thursday, the news hit home. But while she may be missing in person, those who knew her contend, she'll be here.
