Peggy Ann Bain

November 29, 1938 — March 4, 2022

Peggy Ann (King) Bain was born to John Walter & Katherine (Wilkins) King November 29, 1938 in The Ridge Community of Leon County, Texas. She lived her entire life in Leon County and was a faithful member of Calvary Missionary Baptist Church in Centerville. She had worked for various places of employment in her younger years including the telephone company, Dairy Delight and the Leisure Lodge Nursing Home (Centerville Healthcare Center). Peggy considered her most important job that of a devoted wife to her husband, John, and beloved mother to her four children, Tammy, Buddy, Donald and Greg. She could often be found at Western Auto, assisting during days when the parts truck would arrive to deliver inventory and on Fridays and Saturdays when she would visit with her friends at the store. She never hesitated to lend a helping hand to her family when needed. Peggy loved taking care of her yard and flowers and sewing clothing, especially those for Tammy. She passed away March 4, 2022 at her home in Centerville, Texas.
