Peggy Ann Slemp, Tarkio, Missouri, passed away in her home surrounded by her loved ones on August 18, 2022. She was born on January 6, 1951, to Waunita Ellen Harris in Mansfield, Missouri. Peggy graduated from Rock Port High School in 1970.

Peggy worked as a CNA for years until she got a job at Community Hospital in Fairfax as a housekeeper. Later she worked in home health until she retired.

Peggy liked to read, work on puzzles, and watch Western and mystery shows. She also enjoyed coloring but loved it more when she got to color with her great-granddaughter Myla. She had a love for dogs, especially pugs, that she passed down to her great-granddaughter. Most of all, her love for her family was the most important thing to her.

Peggy was preceded in death by her mom; brother, Roger Harris; sister, Sue Mitchell; and brother, Carl Twitty. Surviving loved ones are Sherry (Mark) Caufield of Tarkio; Jeremy (Lana) Slemp of Fairfax; granddaughters, Alanna Lou (Dusty) and Brookie (Mike); great-granddaughter, Myla Ellen; and her brother, Kenny Lewis. We love you and until we meet again, fly high like a butterfly, Mom!
