Special thanks to Open Arms Care and our honorary sister, Tamica and her staff. 

Peggy graduated valedictorian of the class of 1972 at Mt St Mary Academy and received an Alcoa Scholarship. She obtained her Chemical Engineering Degree from the University of Arkansas in 1976, graduating Magna Cum Laude. Peggy set the academic bar high for her siblings. She relocated to Lake Jackson, Texas where she worked for Dow Chemical for 30+ years, during which she obtained her MBA and achieved a black belt in Six Sigma. She ultimately retired as a project manager with Angus Chemical (now Advancion), a subsidiary of Dow, in Sterlington, LA.  

Peggy loved to travel and was looking forward to a February 2024 trip to see the northern lights. She was an accomplished musician, playing the piano, six and twelve string guitars and lending her vocal talents to the choir at St James Methodist Church during their annual Christmas Cantata. 

Peggy always had a dachshund as a companion. She loved her dogs and spoiled them rotten. They were part of the family. She enjoyed needlepoint in the last few years and produced some beautiful items that her family will cherish.

We will miss you, sister. Rest in Peace, you’ve certainly earned it.
