Peggy was born September 10, 1932 in a log cabin in Dover, Tennessee the seventh of nine

children. She began her education in a one-room schoolhouse and went on to graduate from

Murray State University with a degree in Education, working her way through school by waiting

tables. She taught for one year in a one-room schoolhouse in Tennessee, then independently

moved to Garden City, Michigan, where she taught first grade and met Bob Meredith. They

married on December 1, 1956, at the end of hunting season, and raised a family of four children

in Union Lake, Michigan. After Bob’s retirement from the Ford Motor Company in 1985, they

built their log home and settled in Blairsville, Georgia. She became an integral part of the

community through her work with Christian Women’s, AWANA, teaching Sunday school at Faith

Baptist and Grace Presbyterian, and 30 years as a volunteer counselor at Women’s Enrichment

Center. She shared her love for others—especially children—through a lifetime of giving.

She loved camping, playing Rook, wildflowers, welcoming others to her home for meals, her

golden retriever Mattie—but especially her grandchildren and great granddaughter.

Memorial service will be held at Grace Presbyterian Church, 1940 Young Harris Hwy, Blairsville,

GA, February 26, 2022 at 12 noon. There will be a reception at the church immediately

following the service.
