Peggy W. Shackleford, 87, went to be with the Lord on July 3, 2023. Peggy was born on June 19, 1936, to Lem and Travis Ward in Poquoson where she remained all her life.
Peggy began working at age 16 at Grant’s department store in Hampton. Afterwards, she worked at Fort Monroe as a mail clerk but quit once her daughter, Violet, was born. After Violet was grown, she worked as an aide on Poquoson handicap school buses for 22 years.
She loved her family gatherings, camping, and following the Laymen Quartet. In her later years, she enjoyed rocking and spoiling lots of babies that Violet babysat. Peggy followed the Lord and was a member of Messick Baptist Church in Poquoson.
Peggy is reunited in Heaven with her husband, Judson “Buck” Shackleford, Jr.; parents, Lem and Travis Ward; and infant granddaughter, Kaitlyn Andrews.
Her memory is cherished by her daughter, Violet Shackleford; special cousin, Linda Smith; life-long friend, Mattie Firth; and special extended family and friends.
