As a member of Farmville Baptist Church for 64 years, she was a Life Deacon and served in many capacities, most notably interim choir director for many years. She shared her vocal talent at many revivals, weddings and funerals and was instrumental in establishing the bell choir. Music was her love! Peggy’s faith & family came first, but she also enjoyed participation in Garden Club, Daughters of American Revolution, Book Club and Commonwealth Chorale.
