Peggy moved with her parents to New Mexico at the age of 13. She enjoyed sports, playing basketball and softball, and continued that love of sports watching and supporting the grandchildren and great grandchildren in their sporting events. Peggy loved camping and fishing, and loved a good game of Wahoo. She spoiled her husband and grandkids with homemade “hotcakes” every chance she had and made a delicious German Chocolate Cake and cornbread dressing for the holidays.
Peggy pursued several professions throughout her life. She was a beauty operator, drove a dump truck for the family-owned fertilizer company, became a drummer in a country western band called the Melotones with her husband and even had a Purple People Eater painted on her bass drum. She also aced the drummer solo in the instrumental song Wipe-Out. Her most rewarding career choice was being a teacher aide at the Alvarado Elementary South School where she performed many tasks.
