A homemaker and a consummate hostess, she was very involved with many charitable and civic organizations. In addition to traveling extensively world wide with her husband, she was an avid golfer and curler who regularly participated in northeastern US regional golf competitions and in regional and national curling competitions.

She was a member of the First Presbyterian Church of Greensboro, and a lifelong member of The Society of Mayflower Descendents and The Peyton Society of Virginia.

With many fond memories Peyton continues to be a dimension of the Palm City area and the Presbyterian Church. It was certainly a joy to be her pastor and friend. Earth's sorrows have now become Heaven's joy! Our thoughts and prayers are with family and friends. Blessings, Rev. Dr. Raymond Gamble.

To my wonderful cousins, my thoughts and prayers go out to you. There aren't any words that can express the profound impact she and your Dad have on my life to this day. All my love, Stuart, Nancy, Drew, Marissa, and Hunter.

PD, Lisa, and Tim - I just found out today about the loss of Gam. I have such very fond memories of her and Pop from our trip in Scotland and Ireland in 1999. I remember gut-wretching laughter at Gam's wonderful "yesteryear" stories. I so admired her and know that she will be dearly missed. But I also know that her spirit has been and always will be a guiding light in your lives. I smile when I think of her smile. Love Ken
