            Peggy relocated to East Liverpool in 2002 to be closer to her son and family here.  She thoroughly loved being surrounded by her grandchildren and great-grandchildren whom she adored.  She also enjoyed the company of her cat, Pebbles, and she never grew tired of working jigsaw puzzles with her daughter-in-law every day.

            Her husband, Jack, preceded her in death.

            Surviving are two sons, Lonnie Barr and his wife Elizabeth, with whom she resided, and John Barr of Wadestown, WV.  Peggy was also preceded in death by all three of her daughters, Bonnie A. Barr, Carrie E. Barr Lambert, and Alma L. Barr.

            Also surviving are ten grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren, and four great-great-grandchildren.  A granddaughter, Cassandra Barr, preceded her in death, as well as five brothers, three sisters, and a daughter-in-law, Sue Barr.
