Peggy Marie Odom, 83, of Hardin, Texas passed away peacefully Friday, October 1, 2021, with her family by her side.
She was born February 8, 1938 in Daisetta, Texas to the late J.T. (Jake) and Fannie Mae Watson.
Peggy loved to love on everyone she met. She loved to play her piano and played with all her heart for the Lord; she felt a peace within when she played.
Her daily greeting of ‘Hello Darling’ will forever stay in our memories.
Peggy worked for many years for Goose Creek CISD in Baytown, Texas in various roles in the Admin dept.
Her life was an example of the Bible verse Ephesians 4:32: and be kind and compassionate to one another, forgiving one another just as God forgave us in Christ.
