Her father was a cotton farmer and Peggy and her four sisters were taught at an early age how to pick cotton. Peggy didn’t mind telling you she was the fastest of the five sisters at picking cotton. She was never ashamed of how hard she and her sisters worked in the cotton field, she was actually proud and could tell you some kind of stories about it. She was never afraid of work, her motto was: No matter how big or small the job is, you always do your best. She past this trait on to her children too. After she finished high school she began working as a clerk at Woolworth it was there that she waited on a young man by the name of Roy Lee who came in to by some candy (imagine that if you knew Roy Lee). Roy would tell the story of how beautiful she was and how he was going to marry her. A year later on Valentines Day they were married in a little town called Paint Rock, Alabama. Roy loved telling the story of how Peggy locked him out of their motel room on their honeymoon night, he had gone to get them something to eat and while he was gone she locked the door and fell asleep. He had to get the manager to unlock the door. They were married for 56 years, some say she will get a crown for that if you knew Roy Lee.
Peggy had a laugh and a smile that was so contagious it could light up any room. She always had something good to say, she was a people person, she knew how to entertain, they were always having backyard barbecues and cookouts where you were always welcomed.
On the ranch in Boligee where they raised their children it was always something going on, fish frys, cookouts, youth groups would gather there, they would even host barn dances, and let me tell you, she loved to dance. At one time in their early marriage she and Roy were a member of two different square dance groups at the same time. In April of this past year there is a video of her dancing at Sansing. She was just so much fun to be around she could keep in laughing. She was an excellent cook too, most famous for her pound cake, caramel cake and Banana nut bread. Debbie says there is no telling how many loaves of banana nut bread she would bake and give to people. She loved baking and giving it away.If you came to her house most likely you would be served coffee and something sweet. After they left Boligee and moved to Eutaw, she and Roy began working for the State Highway department. Peggy loved her family too, she adored her grandchildren and great grands. She just loved everyone and everyone loved her. She could fit in where ever she went. Not only did she love cooking she loved flowers and working in her yard. She was a very neat and tidy person too. She believed everything has its on place. She also enjoyed taking adventurous trips.
