Peggy was born on December 25,1947 and raised in Chapel Hill, TN. She is preceded in death by her loving husband John William (J.W.) Neal of Spring Hill, TN and both of her parents, Ellis Russell Beard and Agnes Virginia (Dolly) Hazelwood. She grew up in a loving and hard-working family who was well known throughout the Flat Creek community.
Peggy was quite the tomboy growing up, with many memories of playing in the creek with her brother Gary. She and her younger sister, Wanda were the local songbirds of the community who started singing at the age of 10 and 4 years old. You might find them singing on their front porch as one drove by their little country home or hear them singing on a Sunday morning at the Ash Hill Presbyterian Church. As an adult she was a loving wife and wonderful Christian Mother. Her children and grandchildren were the light of her life. She was a very dedicated member of Faith Freewill Baptist Church located in Columbia, TN for over 40 years. Through her faithfulness and love of God, she enjoyed teaching Sunday school, singing in the choir, decorating the church with beautiful flower arrangements, and baking for her fellow church members.
