Peggy Ann Bell

August 9, 1940 — November 14, 2021

Peggy Bell, 81, of Marquez, Texas, passed away November 14, 2021 in Waco, Texas following an extended illness. She was born August 9, 1940 in Concord, Texas to George Steve “Bud” & Cassie “Irene” (Haynie) Turner. Peggy was raised in Concord and attended the Concord School through eighth grade. She graduated from Centerville High School in 1957 and soon moved to Houston where she was employed as a secretary for several Insurance Agencies. In 1974, Peggy moved back to Leon County and married her late husband, Roy Bell.

In her younger years, Peggy enjoyed dancing and socializing. She was a people person and enjoyed getting together with friends and family. Peggy was an entrepreneur and owned several small businesses throughout her life. She enjoyed the business side of her work and even founded her own women’s investment group. Shortly thereafter, Peggy was stricken with a stroke that bound her to her home. This illness didn’t stop Peggy from browsing the internet and making purchases on her favorite website, Ebay or keeping in touch with her family. She was a member of Clear Creek Baptist Church and lived most of her life in Leon County.

Peggy was preceded in death by both of her parents; husband, Roy Bell and sister, Rita Payne.
