A native of Grand Saline, Texas and a Lafayette resident for 48 years, Peggy had a lifelong interest in early childhood education. She began a preschool in the basement of her home while living in Grand Isle, La. She continued this passion by teaching 3 years olds at Asbury Day School for many years after moving to Lafayette. Peggy spent 48 years as a faithful and devoted member of Asbury United Methodist Church. There she taught Sunday school, was active in United Methodist Women with special interest in the Clara Ray Circle, named for her own mother, and worked tirelessly along side many special ladies at the Needy Nook providing clothing and school uniforms for needy children in the community. Peggy loved reading, playing Bridge, and enjoyed loving her furry four legged family members. She will be deeply missed by all those who knew and loved our special MiMi.
Pallbearers will be David, Patrick and Evan McRaney, Brandon and Ethan Lege, and John Hagle.
