Peggy Mann, age 77, of Meridian passed away peacefully in her home on Tuesday, March 1, surrounded by her loving family.
Peggy was a loving wife, mother, and grandmother and surrounded herself with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren at every opportunity. Peggy loved her family and always made sure they knew it. From making everyone’s favorite dish at holiday times to helping with school projects or crafts to being a listening ear and an advice giver, Peggy supported and showed love to her family constantly, and the continuous flow of family in and out of her home is a testament to that love and the special person she was to her family.
Peggy was known for always having a smile on her face. She never met a stranger and would visit with people as if she had known them for years even if they had just met. Her kind heart and gentle spirit could make people feel welcome and special anytime they were in her presence. She loved to talk and visit, so family reunions and other gatherings were always fun times for her. Peggy also loved to cook and to eat, so whether it be suppertime on a weeknight or a big family gathering, you could be sure Peggy would have something delicious to share – like her beloved chicken and dumplings or lemon pie.
Peggy was a hard-worker and a loyal and dedicated employee. She retired from SuperStop after working at the store down the hill on Highway 145 South for 25 years. She then opened her own convenience store on Valley Road (P M Grocery). She loved visiting with her regular customers and getting to know everyone who came through the doors.
Peggy’s legacy lives on in the lives of all who knew her. To know Peggy was to feel love and those who knew her will cherish the fond memories of her daily. She was a faithful Christian and a devoted prayer warrior for those around her. She will be dearly missed, but she rejoices in heaven now with her savior and those who have gone on before.
