Peggy Jean McLin
January 11, 1952 ~ September 29, 2020 (age 68)
Elated, overjoyed, thrilled……..just a few of the feelings that the late Quincel and Annie B. Minter felt on January 11, 1952 upon the arrival of their precious baby girl who they chose to name Peggy Jean Minter, affectionately known as “Peg, Baby, and Shorty.”
Her graveside service was held on Saturday October 3, 2020 at 1:00 pm at Mt. Salem MB Church Cemetery Pastor Melvin Bufford in charge and Dixie Funeral Home (www.dixiefuneralhome.com) was in charge of the professional service.
Peggy was educated in the Hardeman County School System. She attended High School at Bolivar Central High and continue her education at Jackson School of Business earning a degree in business.
Knowing that one day, she would have a permanent home, Peggy dedicated her life to the Lord at an early age and was baptized at Mays Hill Baptist Church.
She was a faithful member until she moved to Chicago, IL. After moving to Chicago, she joined Calvary MB Church where she was a member of the choir. After retirement, she relocated back to Bolivar, TN and joined Mt. Salem MB Church. Peggy served as a choir member and a member of the Pastor’s Aide Committee.
Singing was one of her passions and shopping was her joy. Peggy loved family and friends. She never met a stranger and she was a giving person, no matter what a person needed. She loved working in her yard as well as taking care of her indoor plants. She also had a love for her cats( Cranberry and Ladybug) and her dog (Princess).
After school, Peggy moved to Chicago, IL and was employed at National Futures Associations. After dedicating 30 plus years to the organization, Peggy retired.
After retirement, she moved back to Hardeman County Tennessee, where she resided until her death.
On September 29, 2020, our Heavenly Father saw that our Peggy was tired, and He whispered, “Come child, and take your rest.” Peggy was preceded in death by her parents and one sister; Shirley Lake.
