She married her longtime love Kenneth Allen Holt, in February of 1955. Ken and Peggy were married nearly 65 years and he was holding her hand as she was released to the angels in Heaven. Peggy is survived by her husband Kenneth Allen Holt; her brother William Bland Schwartz and his wife Paulette of Austin, Texas; her sister Jeannie Jackson and her husband Larry of Fredericksburg, Texas. Peggy was a dedicated mother first and foremost. She treasured her children and embraced every moment with them. She especially loved her role as Nana.

Peggy was a wonderful wife, mother, homemaker and home designer. Peggy was a talented architect who designed and built many homes for her clients but her favorite project was building her dream retirement home on Lake Buchanan. Peggy also but had a flair for cooking and had collected and cooked thousands of recipes for her family. Her families’ happiest memories of her are sitting around the dining room table when they were all together.

My sincere condolences to the Holt family. Peggy was a vivacious, caring person. She was a true Steel Magnolia and Southern Belle. May your cherished memories with strength and comfort from our Lord bring each of you through this time of sorrow. I, too went through this in August.2017 when my husband of 53 years passed away. God bless each of you. Haroldlyn Pate Bryan

Ken and family,
I am deeply sorry that you have lost your dear wife Peggy. It has been many years since we have seen each other. Living in the Pacific Northwest really limits seeing old friends.
I have such fond memories of us traveling together and our square dancing together many times.
Peggy was such a delight to dance with and she really light up our "squares".
I shall pray for comfort for you and your family.
I would like to know your address. Here is mine:

My last memory I have with Aunt Peggy is floating down the Frio River. We had so much fun with the family on that river trip and I am so thankful for that time with her. I have good memories of camping when I was a kid, so many wonderful thanksgivings, and I am thankful that I got to visit her beautiful retirement home. She was a wonderful lady and she will be missed. I offer my condolences, as I am too far away to attend her service. I celebrate her life and will be thinking of you all and praying for comfort and God's grace, kindness, and nearness during this time.

Blesings,

Holly Malmsten

I remember her so well & was in awe of her ability to seemingly do anything. She was a whiz at sewing all of those Square Dancing outfits. I consider it a blessing to have known her.
