October 19, 1931 - November 22, 2020
Sunday, November 22, 2020, Peggy L. Williams passed away at home surrounded by her loving family. Born October 19, 1931 in the quiet little farming community of Bucksport, Peggy was the third daughter of Clarence Wood and Mary Louise Moore, joining older sisters Mary Frances (Earl R. Lewis) and Willa Mae (Mack Richardson). Four years later the family was completed with the birth of Billie (Ringold Thompson). Peggy was in her early teen years when Clarence became part of the Horry County’s branch of the Rural Electric Association, the entity which became Horry Electric, and the family moved to Conway. In 1953, she married William T. (Dub) Williams, an upstate boy from Chester County and went to live in Charleston where he worked for General Motors Acceptance Corporation. In July of 1958, their only daughter Brenda was born and soon after the little family moved back to Conway. In 1965, Dub was transferred to Savannah, Georgia. After his death in 1985 Peggy returned once again to Conway. Peggy was a fighter: suffering six miscarriages, a difficult pregnancy, the early death of her husband, and three bouts of cancer and radiation which left her body in constant pain. Nonetheless, she was a Southern lady to the very end. She loved the beach, working in her yard, and yearly trips to Brookgreen Gardens (usually on the hottest day of summer). She adored her daughter Brenda, her twin grandchildren Brian and Caileigh, and her great-granddaughter Emma. She enjoyed the Hallmark Channel, playing Spinner, and cheating at Yahtzee. She will be sorely missed at the game table. Peggy is survived by her daughter, Brenda Williams Long (Victor Long – deceased), sister Billie Thompson, her grandson Staff Sergeant Brian M. Long - USAF, granddaughter Caileigh Long Dennis (John Wiley “Jay” Dennis III) and their daughter Emma Claire, her much beloved niece Frances Earle King, her “adopted” daughter Rebekah T. (Teddi) Chambers, and numerous nieces and nephews. There will be a private ceremony at the gravesite with a celebration of her life to be held later when it’s safe to resume meeting in large groups. In lieu of flowers, the family asks for donations to be sent to either the Shriner’s Hospital (Shriners Hospitals for Children, 2900 Rocky Point Dr. Tampa, Florida 33607) or to the Wounded Warriors Project (Wounded Warriors Project, 4899 Belfort Road, Suite 300, Jacksonville, Florida 32256).
