She was preceded in death by her parents Vernice Miller and Clyde Sunday, her brother Paul Sunday and sister Judy Brewer.
Peggy is survived by her husband Ken of 38 years, two sons James and Bradley and her sisters, Katheryn Cole and Jane Bohannon.
Peggy was born in Quincy Florida, May 4, 1960. After graduating from high school, she enlisted into the United States Air Force and became an aircraft electrician. This is where she also met her husband Ken. After separating from the US Air Force, she followed her husband around the country to different assignments. After attending several different colleges, Peggy decided to become a teacher. She graduated from Cameron University in Lawton Oklahoma.
Upon settling down in Tucson Arizona, Peggy began working as a teacher starting at Marana Unified School District and finishing at Red Rock Unified School District where she retired in 2019. She loved to teach and loved the children she taught as much as she loved her two sons.
Peggy was a Godly woman who loved Jesus. She was involved in the Woman’s Ministry at Grace Covenant Church in Oro Valley. She loved bible studies and worshiping the Lord and especially the fellowship with her church family and friends.
Peggy’s kindness and generosity were always evident. She never hesitated to try and give hope and encouragement where needed and was always present with a smile and love for friends, family and strangers. Her heart was filled with hope for the future of her children and encouraged them to always be their best and to be loving and kind along the way.
Peggy will be dearly missed as she was the center and warmth of our family.
