Her keen wit and humor followed her throughout her life, and her love of Boston Bulldogs and Tennessee Walking Horses were always ever present.

There is only one Peggy Hinson! There will never be another! I taught with Peggy for over 20 yrs . She was a character. I loved talking and sharing with her. You always knew where you stood with Peggy for she would tell you! I liked that about her. Her students loved and respected her and she respected them. They were lucky to have been taught by her and I was fortunate to call her FRIEND . ( Peggy, please don't correct any mistakes in grammar or punctuation)

I am sorry to hear of Peggy’s passing and lift prayers for the family and friends. I knew Peggy during my years teaching at Rothschild Junior High and found her to be a supportive and dedicated colleague. She will be missed.
