Heaven became Peggy's happy home as she peacefully went to be with her Lord Sunday, August 20, 2017, surrounded by her loved ones.

Peggy Jackson was born December 9, 1929 to the late Herbert Griffith Jackson and Florence Keys Jackson in Leesburg, Virginia, the youngest of three girls. She was predeceased by her sisters, Frances Miller and Anne Stancer.

Peggy worked in the Pentagon for the Department of Defense in a supervisory position in Army Staff Security for 38 years before retiring in July 1986. After retirement, Peggy moved to Wilmington, North Carolina in September 1986. Her favorite hobby was acrylic oil painting and she enjoyed making little projects to give as gifts. Peggy had a very generous and giving nature and supported many charitable organizations through the years.

She is survived by nieces Carmalyn Miller and Becky Miller of Wilmington, Emily Fletcher (David) of Hayes, Virginia, and nephews Greg Stancer (Mary) of Front Royal, Virginia, and Steve Moss (Linda) of Burleson, Texas, as well as many great nieces and nephews.

A memorial service will be held Saturday, October 7, 2017, at 3:00 p.m. at Oleander Memorial Gardens columbarium located just inside the front gate, with Reverend Bryan Blackwell officiating.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Pine Valley Baptist Church, 3940 Shipyard Blvd., Wilmington, NC 28403, or to Samaritan's Purse to help in the hurricane relief efforts.
