Peggy was a devoted mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and wife. She loved her family most of all; she liked to garden, crochet, and quilt. Each year Ralph planted a big garden for Peggy to share with family and friends. She loved going to the beach with Ralph and her family. At the beach they often watched the sunrise with a big cup of coffee and then took long strolls in the sand, hunting for shells. She was a dedicated and respected worker at Midway School for several years. She enjoyed her time there as her daughters, grandchildren and great-grandchildren have attended Midway School. She loved the Hummingbird season and always kept fresh sugar water and documented their arrival each year.

Pallbearers include: grandsons, Allen Cardwell, Jason Neal, Chris Cardwell, Heath Champagne, Will Collins, Lucas Gulley, and great-grandson, Cole Higbee.
