Peggy graduated from Charles L. Coon, class of 54.  She married the love of her life, Melvin Tyndall in 1954, their marriage was a loving marriage of sixty-six years between a city girl and a country boy.  Peggy met her future husband when he rode to Wilson with a friend that was dating her sister, they met and fell in love.  She worked for Forbes Transfer company for forty plus years.  Melvin and Peggy were members of the Tabernacle Baptist Church for sixty-one years.  Peggy loved the Lord and her church family and served in any way she could, mainly teaching Sunday school and serving on the hospitality committee for forty plus years.  She earned the title of “Doctor of Hospitality”.

 

Peggy had a servants heart, her compassion for people was invaluable as she volunteered in many areas including Wilson Memorial Hospital waiting rooms, she shared comforting words and deeds with waiting families and was there for them with whatever they needed.  Peggy also volunteered as a hospice volunteer and worked on the elections board during elections.  She was woman of the year of the Willow Springs Home Extension Club, and was a former president of the Wilson Ladies Bowling Association.  Peggy was a wonderful cook; coconut cake was Melvin’s favorite.  At church homecomings some members learned that a big pot of chicken pastry was on the stove in the church kitchen and slipped in to enjoy.  Peggy loved her family dearly, she was spoiled by her son-in-law, and she never missed an event or a ball game that her granddaughter was involved in.  She was ecstatic to have two great-grandsons, although they are young, she was grateful for the years she had with them.
