Peggy (Margaret) Louise Williams was born on January 21, 1938 in Chicago Heights, Illinois.
Later she and her family moved to the Venice/Santa Monica area close to her grandmother. Peggy grew up there, attending Lutheran School with her Sister Marion.
As a loving person concerned about people she decided to attend College to become a Registered Nurse.
She later met her loving and devoted husband Bob (Robert) of 55 years and was married on July 16, 1960.
Not long after Peggy and Bobs love started to blossom children came into the picture. They had 3 beautiful girls: Pamela, Janet, and Robin who lived most of their childhood lives in Sylmar, CA.
Peggy didn't like the idea of other people raising her children, so as the selfless woman she was she left her nursing career and worked hard as a stay at home mom for her girls They remember and cherish Peggy's loving care for them.
Peggy was a camper, and made sure along with Bob that her girls could share in the experience. Several times the family went to the Tehachapi Mountains a place of true beauty. She made sure her girls had many other forms of recreation, even taking them to parties with friends.
Even though Peggy sacrificed some of the so called 'finer things' in life, she always made the best of her situation by supporting Bob the best she could with the household and the children. She did so along with her assets of a never ending smile as well as her good humor; always laughing, and telling jokes.
When times were especially hard Peggy would find ways to make the family comfortable, and stay on budget. She was very resourceful. For instance, if she decided she wanted to make her specialty Lasagna dish she would buy one ingredient for the dish every week until she had all the ingredients to complete it. She would then prepare the dish and surprise the family.
Peggy enjoyed riding on the back of Bobs motorcycle often having the sides of her shoes rub the pavement from the sharp turns through the mountains.
Peggy was also a lover of music. She loved to sing or hum as Bob played country songs on his guitar. She also loved to listen to the songs of Tenor Actor/Singer Mario Lanza of the late 1940's and 50's. One of Peggy's girls remember sitting at home with Peggy watching Mario Lanza movies together after coming home from school and listening to Peggy singing along. Another daughter remembers when coming home from school Peggy would be playing the Disney song 'Whistle while you Work', singing and dancing with the broom.
She also supported her girls in the area of music, being so loving and patient listening to Pam, Janet and Robin through the different years trying to learn how to play the clarinet, flute, and violin respectively.
Peggy's hobbies included knitting, sewing, gardening, and collecting figurines of wild animals- especially Elephants. Peggy's favorite color was red, and her favorite flower was red roses.
Oh, and watch out! Many did not know about my mothers hidden talents. Peggy was a crack shot with a 22 gauge rifle! She would take trips out to secluded areas in the Mojave Desert with Bob, Marion, Bill, and the family, then set up targets and shoot! Some times they would act out funny little western skits or scenes! Yes, Peggy could not only shoot, but she was also an actress!
Peggy also showed great love for her husband and children by showing she wanted a good life for them. She studied the Bible with a faithful loving woman named Doris Roy. Peggy learned that Gods purpose for the earth has always been for mankind to live forever on a peaceful, garden like earth where there would be no violence, sickness, or death. Peggy longed for the time in the near future where she and her family would see the realization of Jehovah Gods promise to restore mankind back to these conditions. Peggy and Bob along with Sister Marion, and Bob's Brother Bill, were baptized as Jehovah's Witnesses on January 14, 1967.
Her faith in Jehovah's promises for the future enabled her to picture a time when she could satisfy all the desires of her heart! -- Psalms 145:16
Because of this hope, Peggy spoke about Jehovah's promises to everyone she met, and assisted many to come to love Jehovah as much as she did. This included her children who are so thankful for this loving, unselfish gift. Peggy was a wonderful example. She was always out in service and attending meetings where she was truly happy, and she was known for her loving qualities of patience and kindness always expressed with a warm, sincere, heartfelt hug.
Peggy, loving wife and mother , passed away on November 10, 2015, and is survived by her faithful husband and friend Robert Williams, their 3 daughters Pamela, Henry, Janet Wilson, and Robin Theriot, her brother Joe Borecki, her 10 grandchildren, 8 great grandchildren, and nine nieces and nephews (listed below).
Peggy's family yearns for the time when Jehovah will bring her back to life in his promised Resurrection, and they can spend eternity with her on earth with all of Jehovah's creation- especially elephants roaming in her back yard.
She will be dearly missed. We Love You Dear Wife and Mom @--->--
