Emma Peggy Everhart
January 5, 1925 – March 17, 2020
Emma Peggy Everhart was born in 1925 in Greensboro and after years of declining health passed away on March 17, 2020. She lived in Greensboro her whole life and shared a home in Bessemer with her Mother, Bessie Frances Everhart. Peggy moved to Carillon Assisted Living where she forged numerous friendship in her 18 years of residence and then to Blumenthal’s Nursing Center until her passing. Peggy never met a stranger and she loved people, especially children. Though she never married or had children, she considered the children of friends and family a part of her family and loved to spend time with them. She taught Sunday School for little ones for several years at Proximity United Methodist Church where she was very active. She remained close to her childhood friends and they traveled together over the years. She was a survivor and defied the odds of health scares and accidents. Peggy inspired others and lived her life as a testament to her faith and strength. She will be remembered as very self-motivated, independent and opinionated. She loved a yard sale and ice cream, Bingo and playing cards. Peggy had several special people in her life who helped look out for her over the years including Mary Bolin and Jake Tilley who she loved very much and appreciated all they did over the years to help make her life so special. Many friends and cousins survive her. A service to celebrated Peggy will be announced later. Online condolences may be offered at www.haneslineberryfhnorthelm.com.

Peggy's mother and my mother (Alice Everhart Oakes) were sisters.
She and Aunt Bessie were very close to Grandma Everhart who lived down Walnut Street from my mom and dad during my early childhood. Many memories remain of the typical mill village family gatherings on the front porch, rocking in unison, enjoying a dip, and sharing the simple life. Peggy and her mom were a joy to be around, their laughter and limitless conversation added memories that last a lifetime. Heaven's joy will be increased by a saint named Peggy.
