Loving to be near nature, she bought land near Stephenville, declared it a mountain and built a yurt on the top. Peggy's Mountain became a gathering place for friends and relatives to enjoy the out of doors with the trees, flowers, rocks, squirrels, ladybugs and butterflies. Over the years Peggy held membership in Altrusa, Delta Kappa Gamma, various teacher and librarian associations, and Polytechnic United Methodist Church. Peggy was preceded in death by her parents, William Henry and Willie Elizabeth and by her brothers and sisters: Lorene Bond, Selman Turner, Hazel Craig and Bruce Turner.
