Love and prayers to all of you in the loss of your beautiful mother, and grand mother, and a friend to all. I am so glad I was able to visit and talk with her for a last time, when she and my sister Judy were at Foothills rehab. She called and knew my name immediately. Argyle, always welcomed you with a loving, beautiful smile...always made you feel like the only person in this world. She will be sorely missed...❤️&🙏s Jean Anthony Knight

Pace Family, We sent a message yesterday, but don’t know if it was delivered, so we will send another one today. We will always remember Argyle’s smile, delicious food, and the ways she reached out into the community. Thurmond and Argyle always set on the back left side of Griffin Baptist. Brenda passed away right after we moved from Pickens to Summerville. We are happy now that Argyle and Brenda are reunited. Love, Sara and Fred Astin

I am so sorry to hear of Mrs Argyle passing. I only knew her for a year or so but I learned quickly how this Christian lady molded so many in her life. She had a spectacular smile and I just loved the twinkle in her eye I will miss her and caring for her. Heaven gained another angel Sunday
I will continue praying for her family and friends I affectionately always called her baby I will never forget you Baby

Dear Pace Family,

Today I heard of Argyle's homegoing. What a reunion!! To see Jesus face to face.
I began to reminisce of the times I spent at her house with Jean and Janet and how Ms. Argyle always made you feel so welcome. My heart aches for you all, as I know how much you loved your mother. I will ask God to hold you during this most difficult time.

Love you all,

Donna

Argyle was a precious lady whose love for her family was evident in all she did! She was the epitome of a Proverbs 31 woman. Her hands were always going about doing good. She was a hard worker, but knew how to enjoy life. You never stepped through her door without being offered something to eat. She sent Daddy some of her fried apple pies when he was not well. Her eyes twinkled when she was happy and she knew how to make those around her feel loved. One of the greatest testimonies she left behind is the love and faithfulness of her children . We all rise up and call her blessed today. Our deepest condolences.
