Peggy Jean White Gray passed peacefully to be with Jesus on Tuesday, March 5, 2019. She was predeceased by her parents, Lee Mitchell White and Artie Turner White, beloved husband, Mack Gibson Gray, brother Lee Roy White, sisters Beatrice Ghormley, Loneta “Bid” Hamlett, Ruth Anderson, and son-in-law, James Britt, grandson, Curtis Britt. She is survived by her brother, Carl White of Corpus Christi, son Larry and daughter Linda, Larry’s wife Pam, grandchildren, Tim and Ramona Britt, Rebecca and Lee Akers, Laurie and Brett Boudreaux, Michael and Sabine Gray, Melissa and Chris Colihan, Amelia and Brian Culwell, great- grandchildren, Larissa A. Wilson and Amanda Akers, Sarah and Steffen Korus, Cole and Katie Boudreaux, Gage Boudreaux, Carter, Brenna and Tommy Colihan, Grayson, Madison, Lauren and Aiken Culwell, and great- great-grandchildren Hudson and Canon Wilson, Sophie Korus, and numerous nieces and nephews.
Peggy came from a big family and she loved family dearly. She promoted the family reunion of the Grays and the Whites and never failed to bring many of her deliciously sweet desserts.
Peggy was born and raised in Rising Star. She was the youngest of 6 children, so she had many “mother” figures in her life. She lived with her sisters’ families and a wonderful influence named Ms. Foster, when her father was traveling. She recalled lots of adventures during her growing up years, such as the Rising Star pep squad and dances in the surrounding towns. She attributed the adventures to the fact that she had a car and a checking account. She graduated as Valedictorian of her high school class. She married Mack when she was 17 during WWII. When Mack was in the Navy, stationed in San Francisco, she, at 17, boarded a train and went to see him. When asked if she wasn’t scared, she said, “No”. She was full of confidence. And she had the chance to travel in Texas, Williamsburg, Virginia, the Holy Land, and to Dubai to visit her daughter. She loved an adventure. She loved driving in the country, and saying to her dad, to Mack and then to Larry, “tell me a story”.
Peggy had many titles during her working career, bank trust officer, Vice president of a trust company, paralegal, owner of a couture dress shop and a beauty salon. But her most prized title was prayer warrior. Her spiritual gift of prayer was shared with many, many people throughout her life, up until the day before she died. The gift was shared in every ministry in which she was involved.
Many thanks to the countless Caregivers who helped Peggy during the last period of her life, the staff of The Courtyards of Lake Granbury, and especially Tina Schrock of Community Personal Care .
