Peggy was born on December 23, 1950 to Fred Eugene and Frances Medlin at the Howard Air Force Base on Panama Canal, Panama. She loved to listen and dance to country western music, arts and crafts ‘she was artsy”, roller skating “she just glided”, bowling at the Red Rooster and the Town and Country Bowling alleys “she was on several bowling leagues”, sports “track”, playing retro video games “her favorite game was Burger Time”, and she liked to beautify herself “Primping every chance she got”. Peggy was an assistant manager at Denny’s when she was in an accident that impacted her life in October of 1981; the cause of a drunk driver colliding with her. She was strong willed and was determined to get well. After her accident her Pekingese dog “Poncho” helped her heal. Peggy attended St. Mark’s Lutheran Church in Roswell and was a former member of the Roswell Bowling Association. She was always Grandma to the family “until she came Momoe”.
She is preceded in death by her parents; one grandson Jeremy Conklin; and Niece-In-Law Josephine Arias.
She is survived by her daughter: Sheila Ann Bowers (Bert Sanders) of Roswell, NM; sister: Mary Lee Medlin of Albuquerque, NM; grandchildren: Adam Lem (Trisha) of Las Cruces, NM, Amber Conklin (Avery Muniz) of Albuquerque, NM, Michelle Ann Barber (Adam Neal) of Roswell, NM, Teryn Lem of Las Cruces, NM; great-grandchildren: Jeremiah Barber of Roswell, NM, Orion Siegler of Albuquerque, NM; nephew: Gene Purcell of Roswell, NM; niece: Wendy Lem (Shawn) of Roswell, NM; and two great-nieces: Jessica Mendez of Roswell, NM and Sierra Purcell of Roswell, NM; as well as numerous aunts and uncles of North and South Carolina.
Our family wish, is for “Momoe” to rest in peace with “Poncho” and Jeremy.
