BillMy heart is broken as I just learned of the passing of my best friend Peggy. My thoughts and prayers go out to you and your entire family. May God bless you all.
Such a precious lady. She always greeted me with the most beautiful smile and warm ❤ heart. I'm praying for you Bobby/Judy, Keith and Paul, Bill, and Mark. I'm sure your hearts are broken but our loss was certainly heaven's gain! We'll see her again one day soon!
I'll miss your sweet smile and your beautiful singing. My thoughts of comfort for all your family.
Mom (Lula Payne) and I send our most sincere sympathies. Peggy was someone we always had on our "visit" list when we were in Damascus. Mom knew the entire Brown family and I have memories of Peggy going back to the late 1950's. She was an elegant lady and will be missed by all who were blessed to have known her. We send prayers for Bill and the Brown family.
Peggy was a great friend. Such a sweet spirit. Our thoughts and Prayers are with Bill, Bobby, Judy and family. It was such a pleasure to be in the same Sunday School Class and Birthday Club with her. A great Christian lady. She will be greatly missed. Rest in Peace Mrs. Peggy.
I have a very vivid memory from childhood of attending a wedding in the old First Baptist Church rock building in Damascus. It is the first wedding that I remember attending as a young girl. The church was packed and we were dressed in our Sunday best. The Bride was beautiful in her white gown and veil and the groom was handsome in his suit. Everyone was happy and there were flowers and a beautiful cake to eat. I still remember it to this day and how beautiful it was. It was years later and when I was an adult that I found out that it was Peggy and Bill's wedding that I was remembering. I will miss Peggy and the smile she always seem to have. My sympathy to Bobby, Judy, Paul, and Keith and their families.
My thoughts and prayers are with Mr. Bill and family. Mrs. Peggy had such a kind, gentle spirit. Will miss visiting with her occasionally when I saw her and Mr. Bill in Conway.
My thoughts and prayers are with the McCool and Brown families, Peggy was a sweet person with a beautiful smile, Gary and I were blessed to have her for a friend and to have been able to worship with her at First Baptist.
Our sympathy and prayers for your family. So sad to learn of the passing of Peggy. Knew her from high school and then in our retirement years we were fortune enough to share membership and attend meetings in two teacher related organizations--Delta Kappa Gamma and Van Buren County Retired Teachers. She was wonderful lady.
I was so heart broken to read this. She was my 2nd grade teacher. She was a lovely and wonderful lady.
Please accept our condolences on the passing of your loved one. It was an honor to have known such a great person and we will truly miss her. May God embrace you in comfort during this difficult time.
Peggy was a dear friend. We came to Hughes to teach the same year and ended up living together in the teacherage ,teaching together for many years, traveling together, and next door neighbors until she retired and moved back home to Damascus. I will miss her.
Peggy was such a lovely lady, wonderful teacher and just an all around joy to be around. Her love for beautiful flowers and antiques was ever present. She added a bright spot to Hughes with all her grace.

Peggy was in my (Sandra) high school class and went on to college with me and others in our class. Several years ago our class began having an annual reunion. Peggy and Bill were always there. Although we didn’t see each other a lot, we enjoyed those reunions! We also spoke on the phone occasionally. I am also glad to know that Peggy knew the Lord and is now celebrating with Him today. Goodbye dear friend. I love you. Sandra and George
