Peggy Anderson
April 20, 1938 -- November 12, 2018

Peggy Laverne Anderson, 80, of Little Elm, TX, passed away in her sleep at the home of her son, Richard Minick, on November 12, 2018. Peggy was predeceased by her husband, Lee Anderson; parents Jack and Faye Gheen and Pete and Dovie Morgan; and infant brother, William Frederick. She is survived by her son Richard Minick (Kathy Steinkopf) of Little Elm, TX; daughter Linda Marie Robb (Kerry) of Warren, OR; son James Edward Minick (Sheila) of San Diego, CA; sisters, Tenia Hoops of Denton, TX, and Judy Carder (Lloyd) of Sanger, TX; step-children Michael Anderson, Keith Anderson, Kathy Trant, and Lisa Fredline; and many grandchildren, step-grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces and nephews. Peggy is lovingly recalled as a true Southern gentlewoman, a fabulous cook, and a welcoming spirit. Her family remembers her special greeting, “Hey, baby,” in her beautiful slow Southern drawl, a warm embrace even over the telephone. Peggy loved with her whole heart, but she could be as tough as steel when need be. She is fondly remembered for cooking full Southern breakfasts, homemade macaroni and cheese, banana pudding, waffles, and sweet potato casserole. Her children gratefully acknowledge her sacrifices so each could have a good life. She taught them the values of love, patience, perseverance, respect, and appreciation for good music. Peggy lived and worked in Texas, Minnesota, California, and Oregon. Peggy and Lee had grand adventures, including residing in the forests of Minnesota, traveling in their RV, visiting Nevada, and living on Cedar Creek Lake near the heart of Texas, as well as the pine forests of east Texas. Peggy and Lee were active members of the Cook, MN VFW Post 1757 and Trona, CA Elks Lodge 1975. We miss Peggy dearly, and we know that she is happy to be reunited with the love of her life, Lee Anderson. We believe she is looking over us with happiness, love, and pride. Services and interment at Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery are being planned for April, 2019 which will correspond with her entry into our wonderful world.

I am broken hearted right now because I have lost my older sister and "pal". We have had some very wonderful adventures during the past few years and I am missing hearing her voice almost every day since she became ill. My heart goes out to her children and grandchildren as we all will miss this special lady, but I know that she is walking around in heaven right now just looking at everything and everyone of our loved ones that are already there. I envy her spending her very first Christmas in heaven with our Lord and Savior. If we could hear her right now she would be telling us "Don't cry for me loved ones, because I am where I have longed to be for so long. Bye my sweet Sis, and I will see you again.

You have been in heaven since November 12, 2018, my sweet Peggy. I have missed you so much during that time. I cry for me, but I rejoice for you, my sister and my friend. I miss talking to you everyday and going out with you. We had so much fun together. I know that I will see you again, so wait for me and tell all of our family I love them and miss them also.
