INDIAN LAND -- Ms. Peggy Jean Landry, 46, of 433 Stormy Lane, died Saturday, May 24, 2008.
Funeral services will be 7 p.m. Friday at Whitesell Funeral Home. The family will receive friends from 6 to 7 p.m. Friday at the funeral home.
A native of Tampa, Fla., Ms. Landry was employed by Met Life Insurance as a broker support analyst. During her tenure at Met Life, she completed various courses at York Technical College; of these achievements she was most proud. She was an avid motorcycle enthusiast and was taken from us doing what she enjoyed most: riding her Harley Davidson Sportster with her fiancé and close friends. Peggy will best be remembered in our hearts as a loving, giving, caring, unselfish friend who gave of her time and talents to others in the community. Whether she was participating in a charity motorcycle event or just planning a friends' gathering, she will be remembered. Her bubbly effervescent personality was so wonderfully strong that she would light up a room as she entered it. She had a quick wit and a southern lady's charm. She will surely be missed by those of us who had the pleasure of knowing her.
Children were her special joy. During her work at Child and Family Development, she started her own hat drive for the children in need and also kept a full bowl of candy for the children there.
She is survived by her fiancé, Charles Bowers; three sisters, Lori Hollingsworth, Deb Sullivan, and Beverly Lynch; beloved Labrador, CoCo; her ex-husband, Dale Landry; those she called her kids, Joe Hollingsworth, Joy Hollingsworth Huckeba, Joey Huckeba, Selena Vallejo, Amber and Gauge Caskey; her extended family of close friends; and friends at Met Life. She was preceded in death by a brother, Russell Pruitt.
We who are left behind ask the community to remember us in prayer and that God will grant us the strength to carry on our daily lives without the one who meant so much to each of us in so very many special ways. Peggy was our friend, sister, constant companion, adversary, advisor, shoulder to cry on and strength to rely on. Without her, only our memories and the love for her in our hearts will sustain us. God gives us love, someone to love He lends us. We are grateful, Father God, for the time we had Peggy in our lives.
