Peggy taught first grade in Homewood for over 30 years and retired from Edgewood Elementary School. She loved her job and was very dedicated until retirement. After retirement, she remained active with her loved former colleagues. She was a member of Bluff Park United Methodist Church and an active member of the Fisherman class. She was an active member of PEO International Chapter D, a philanthropic organization of former educators. Peggy served on the Executive Board of the McCoy Adult Daycare Center, a community service that was dear to her heart.
Peggy loved volunteering and would always participate in anything from rock-a-thons to diaper drives to bake sales. She was a wonderful cook and blessed so many with her gift of baking!
Peggy had many accomplishments through her life but was most proud of being a dedicated wife, mother, sister, and friend! She loved her role as a grandmother! She embraced and lived by the motto, “it’s better to serve than be served.” She was always doing for others and that will remain her lasting legacy.
Our family would like to express our sincere appreciation to the wonderful ladies who took such loving care of mother: Brenda Collins, Pearlie Johnson, Renee Edwards, Amy Northcutt, Deborah Turner, Ashley Trawick, and Clemmy Weber. Each of these ladies was a true blessing in their own special way!
