Our mother was the kindest and most wonderful mother any of us could have hoped for, and she showed us nothing but love our entire lives. She loved us unconditionally, and in doing so, taught us to love ourselves and each other. Peggy helped us appreciate the family we have, often pointing out that many were not as fortunate. Present in all of our lives, lucid, quick witted, and funny until the end, she celebrated our accomplishments and joys, and was our solace during times of doubt and struggle, wanting nothing from us but our happiness. A favorite saying of hers was "this too shall pass", and though we are thankful her death was a peaceful one, and that her pain and discomfort have come to an end, we mourn our loss and know we will forever miss her presence and love in our life. Our mother believed in God and the power of prayer, and we know she is in a better place. We are eternally grateful to have had such a light in our lives.

A graveside service will be held Thursday, February 8, 2024, 1:00 p.m. at the Fox Family Cemetery, Chatham, Va. with Rev. Mikel Pugh officiating.

The family requests that all letters of condolence be sent to the family at: Jackie Eanes, 735 Good Shepherd Way, Owings, MD, 20736. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in our mother's honor to SPCA of Pittsylvania County or online at"
