After moving to Dallas, Peggy worked at Western Electric and then AT&T. She retired after twenty years of service. Glenn and Peggy moved to Edgewood in 1991. Peggy was a member of First Baptist Church in Edgewood for twenty four years. She loved her many friends and several times a week she played cards and bingo at the church and Senior Citizens Center. Peggy enjoyed working in the flower beds and planting many flowers, helping her daughter work outside in the yard and helping others anyway she could. She was most happy when she was with and doing things with her family and spoiling her granddaughters. Grandma will be dearly missed by her daughter, son-in-law, granddaughters and her two great-grandsons. She leaves an enormous void in our hearts and will be dearly missed. We love you.
