Peggy Lenora Martin, 77, of Sylva went home with Jesus on October 4, 2017. Born December 12, 1939 in Zolpho Springs, FL, she leaves behind 4 children, Sherry Martin, Larry Martin, Jr., Crystal Martin and Shellie Studdard; 14 grandchildren, Misty, Ashley, Robert Jr., Ariel, Brooke, Hunter, Courtney, Zachary, Michael, Nicholas, Rylie, Garret, Gavin and Cricket; and great-grandchildren, Jordan, Travis, Kylie, Aurora, Aubree and Levi. Great-grandson, Brent, is with Jesus.
Peggy loved her family and looked forward to their frequent beach vacations, birthday parties and family holiday gatherings. She had a special love and passion for the ocean and lived most of her life in coastal Florida. She enjoyed Bible study, bingo and other activities with her friends at Jackson Village in Sylva. Peggy was an inspiration and loved by all. She will be dearly missed and, as she would say, this isn’t goodbye. Just until we are together again!!
