“Peggy was young when she married, and her husband asked his mother to take her to the grocery store and teach her how to shop. Her Mother-in-law was telling her what she should be buying. Peggy finally said to her "If I have to cook it and eat it, I will buy what I want." Her Mother-in-law said to her "You're a Sassy little thing aren't you." She has had the nickname “Sassy” ever since.”
“Peggy loved God, her Church and was a faithful member. She would be honored that the members of Joyful Life Baptist Church started two Beckley Area Foundation funds in her memory that others would receive the love of God through her BAF memorial funds for many years.”
— Karen Price | Friend, Joyful Life Baptist Church
Peggy was a 1956 graduate of Woodrow Wilson High School and a member of the Joyful Life Baptist Church. Peggy loved her church and was very active with her church family. She loved people and never met a stranger. She had a great sense of humor and loved to laugh with others.
