Peggy Marie Miedrich

Aug 05 1934 - Mar 04 2009

Peggy Marie Miedrich was born the second child to Ben and Lennie Brown in Vinson, Oklahoma, August 5, 1934. She grew up in Hollis, OK with her two brothers, Edwin and Ben A. Brown. Marie loved to tell stories to her children and grandchildren of working at the soda fountain in her father’s pharmacy. She enjoyed laughter and children and family and pulling pranks. Every family member has a tale about the rubber fried egg she’d serve for breakfast; or the holes she cut in her dress so she didn’t have to wear it; or the dead chicken she would serve for dinner. She ruled her home with laughter and an Okie twang. Marie, as she was known to her family, married Alan David Miedrich on June 4, 1968, at the base chapel in K. I. Sawyer AFB, Michigan. Their union blended two families into one loving unit. She followed Alan, an Air Force pilot and career officer across the country in sixteen moves and was a master at making a house into a home. She earned her realtor license in three states and was a sought after interior designer and decorator. Every living space had to be both beautiful and child-friendly. Marie’s Christian faith was the bedrock of both her life and her death. Her special talent was encouragement. After a long and debilitating illness, she continued to speak kind and encouraging words to comfort her family. Marie specifically wanted to thank her parents, her brothers and her husband Alan for contributing to a blessed life. When she died on March 4, 2009, she passed peacefully in her home surrounded by all her family, just as she had wanted. For the present time, she leaves behind her brothers, Ed and Ben Brown along with their wives and children; her husband of forty-one years, Alan Miedrich, and five children. Her son, Bill Moore is married to Joanie and their children include: Dustin and Kim Moore, Maddie and Luke Westendorff, Jordan and Mark Winker and great-grandchild Marshall Winker. Her daughter Melisa Nault and lifetime friend, Fran Herin; her daughter Karen Miedrich-Luo and husband Brad Luo, grandchildren Brittany Monroe (deceased), Hannah Luo and Bethany Luo; her daughter Debra Fisher and husband Randy Fisher, grandchildren Aaron Fisher and Audrey Fisher; and daughter Alana Miedrich. Visitation will be held at Turrentine-Jackson-Morrow Funeral Home in Frisco, Texas on Thursday, March 5, 2009 beginning at 6:00PM. Funeral Services will be held on Friday, March 6, 2009 at Christ United Methodist Church in Plano at 3:30PM with Rev. Bart Smith officiating. Interment will follow at Ridgeview Memorial Park.
