Peggy Irons, Florence, AL left this earthly world on December 20th, to meet her savior Jesus Christ. She had battled Parkinson’s for the past twelve years. She was a mother, grandmother and friend to all. We knew her as Mom, Gran, Aunt Peggy, “P” and Miss Peggy depending on who you were in her family of friends. She was a loving, humble, gracious, servant leader, who loved her family, friends and children. She was a devout Christian attending Woodlawn Church of Christ and loved her church family.
We have been blessed by her grace in our lives. She had a unique way of getting you to smile and laugh, no matter who you were. She taught us the true joy of love. Each of us having our own unique story that only you and she knew. She lost her daughter who had Cerebral Palsy at a young age. This led her to a career of taking care of children after this loss. They became a part of hers & our extended family for a lifetime. She opened her home to everyone. She taught all of us to cook cornbread, biscuits, fried chicken and your favorite trimming.
Preceding her in death were her daughter; Sherry, parents; Leo Bevis & Ina Bevis; and brother Donald Bevis.
She is survived by Larry Irons and they would have been married 60 sixty years, December 29th, 2021. Her son; Charles (Alyson), grandchildren; Ashlyn & Charley (Holly), Brother; David Bevis (Holly), sister in laws; Martha Jones, Paula Irons, Sue Irons, Gloria Bevis, and many nieces and nephews.
