OBITUARY

Peggy Joyce (Christopher) Nuttall

September 19, 1928November 15, 2020

Peggy Joyce (Christopher) Nuttall, 92, of Sandston, passed away peacefully on November 15, 2020.

Born on September 19, 1928 in London, England, she moved to Virginia in 1947 with her husband, Howard Nuttall of Sandston, to whom she was happily married for over 50 years. Her kindness and deep sense of dignity clearly showed to everyone who met, knew and loved her.

She was immensely devoted to her family and loved cooking for them, whether it was fixing a Christmas dinner, canning vegetables and cooking tomato and lemon preserves, or making her wonderful Sunday roast. She loved reading British mysteries, volunteering at St. Mary’s Hospital and gardening with her family, and could name numerous species of plants and flowers. She had a melodic voice that resembled the songs of the wild birds she loved both hearing and watching.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Howard Nuttall; eldest son, Christopher Nuttall; mother, Florence Christopher; father, Samuel Christopher; and sister, Dorothy “Sue” Mason. She is survived by her daughter, Suzanne Coughlin; youngest son, John Nuttall (wife, Chin); grandson, David Nuttall (wife, Nina); granddaughter, Brianne Coughlin; great-grandsons, Tyler Nuttall and Christian Nuttall; and great-granddaughter, Ashlyn Nuttall, all of whom love her dearly and hold countless cherished memories.

A private service will be held at Washington Memorial Park. Online condolences may be left at www.nelsenrichmond.com.

Our hearts are truly saddened to hear of Peggy's passing. We were neighbors for over 40 years and felt like she was part of our family. She was the sweetest, kindest person and we were blessed to know her. We will miss her always.

Suzanne,

I am so so sad to hear about your sweet momma. While working at Heritage Green, she changed my life. I loved hearing her sing, listening to stories about her life, and seeing her sweet, sweet smile. She taught me more than I think she ever realized. I am so happy she is now pain free and with her husband and son whom she always talked about. I loved hearing her talk about Jesus, and I know she was so excited to finally meet him. I wish I could've gotten one more big hug. I truly loved her and I will never forget her or the impact she had on me. I am sending you all so much love and prayers.
Rest in Peace sweet Peggy Joyce

Love,
Madalyn
