Peggy loved, and was well loved by, her devoted family who cared for her around the clock until the very end. She will be remembered for her good humor and way with words. It was impossible to be around her long without cracking a smile, if not belly laughing. Peggy was completely dedicated for over 50 years to her beloved husband, David. She was fond of her career of 30+ years at the West Columbia Walmart where she made many lifelong friends. Peggy will be deeply missed by all who knew her.

A graveside burial service will take place at Greenlawn Memorial Park, 845 Leesburg Rd, Columbia, SC, immediately following the funeral service.
