I will never forget the trinkets and gifts Nana would give to me and my brother whenever she got a chance and how her face would light up when she saw us. She has been a part of my life since before I can remember and I will miss her.
Grant Mills, April 20, 2016 Peggy was my cousin, and about 5 months older than I. We spent a lot of time together in our childhood but we moved in different directions so I didn't get to see her often in our later life. Condolences to her children and cousin Bill. Photo of cousins about 1952

Sorry to hear about Peggy. Her Mother and my Mother were sisters. My Mother was Maudene. Don't know if any of you kids remember her. I was just a few years older than Peggy. Leroy Hammons, April 12, 2016 Praying for the family, Peggy was my aunt and although we didn't see each other much I still loved her dearly and hate to hear that she passed. Keri Wallace Gowin , April 2, 2016 I am deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Peggy. She came into my life during a very impressionable time. She, Mike and Karen had a big influence on my life and I am better for knowing all of them. I pray for peace for them and the rest of the family. I am confident of the grace and salvation of their faith and ask the Lord to bless them all. Ben Bratcher, April 1, 2016 Shane, please email @ Would love to connect.
