Ms Peggy will be greatly missed by us. She was a very, strong & faithful lady at Mt Stephens Baptist Church, always willing to do whatever needed to be done. Thank you Ms Peggy for stepping in and teaching the teenage- young adult class when Ms Deborah left. To God Be The Glory, RIP

I did not know Mrs Peggy had passed. I would see her from time to time with her husband at the store. I am so sorry for your loss. I first met Mrs.Peggy through my father that used to be driver for DFACS. again I am so sorry . I got to know her more by being a fosterparent. She gave DFACS many years of service and she loved her job and the people of this county.
