Peggy graduated from Grubbs High School in 1961. After high school, she served her country proudly in the United States Army from 1964 to 1967.

She regularly attended One City Church, formerly known as Cathedral in the Pines, and was a faithful volunteer at Some Other Place in Beaumont, Texas.

The last 21 years of her life centered on her grandchildren and their activities. She was also very fond of her grand-dogs, Lucy, Max and Layla. Peggy will be greatly missed by all who knew her.
