Peggy Marie Lindsey January 4, 1939 – February 22, 2021 Peggy Marie Cole Lindsey was born January 4, 1939, in Hugo, Oklahoma to Clarence and Romie Cole. Peggy was raised on the family farm in Messer, Oklahoma but farm life was not her cup of tea. She graduated from Hugo High School in 1957 and then put herself through college, graduating with Bachelor of Science degree in Education from Southeastern State College in Durant, Oklahoma. She worked at numerous school districts during her career including those in Dallas, TX; Fullerton, CA; Channelview, TX and Baytown, TX. She also ran a private pre-school and kindergarten, Vor-Lin, with longtime friend Kay Voran in Baytown, TX. Probably her favorite teaching job was with the Department of Defense. Peggy loved to tell stories of teaching on Air Force bases in England, Italy, and the Azores. During her time overseas she met many people, traveled all over Europe, and had many adventures. Peggy married Paul Lindsey in 1969. They were married 28 years. Peggy was very devoted to her family and especially her grandchildren. She loved reading, sewing, and cheering on the Astros! She is preceded in death by her Father, Clarence Cole, her Mother Romie Songer Cole, Siblings Clarence Cole, Arvie Shockey, Mildred Salce, Warren Cole, Leo Cole, Cleo Cole, Joyce Cole, and Mary Jane Pitchard. Peggy is survived by her children Laura Macuba (Jim Macuba), Joel Lindsey (Jeania Louque); Jeff Lindsey (Katy Lindsey) as well as her beloved grandchildren, Brittany Dyer, Olivia Macuba, Cayla Lindsey, Cole Macuba, Trent Louque, Allie Lindsey, and Hunter Lindsey. Peggy was the last living of all her siblings and will be smiling ear to ear joining them in Glory. Peggy devoted her life to teaching children and sharing her love of reading to the hundred of students she had over the years. Her smile and laugh were contagious and she was always willing to help others.

Laura, Joel, and Jeff I feel like I’ve lost a family member. Our families were such good friends, and Peggy and Kay eventually business partners. There are so many good memories.

I am so thankful the Lord permitted me to help her this past year or so to know about her family tree. She has told me several times that before she dies she would like to know who her Cole family was and where they came from. Well, Peggy turned 82 on January 4th and I was able share with her the research information I have. I also researched her mother's side (Songer) of her family. I printed all this information, boxed it up and sent it to her. Peggy was so excited and my heart was so full of love and excitement I cried when she called to let me know she had received the information. Thank you Lord!
My dearest Peggy, I miss and love you dearly.
