Mrs. Woody had an artistic touch, and she enjoyed using her talents in her painting and cake decorating. She also enjoyed poetry. Peggy was saved, loved the LORD, and spent many hours in her last years soaking in His Word through Bible Study and listening to preaching while sitting at the family dinner table. Peggy was a member of Faith Baptist Church in Belleville, and she retired from work as a beautician and a secretary.
A memorial service will be held at a later date at Faith Baptist Church in Belleville.
