Peggy Atchison, 82, of Wichita, Kansas, formerly of Big Spring, died Monday, March 12, 2012, at her residence. The family will receive friends from 5:00 PM until 6:00 PM Thursday at Myers & Smith Funeral Home. Graveside services will be at 10:00 AM Friday at Mount Olive Memorial Park with Rev. Elwin Collom, pastor of Hillcrest Baptist Church, officiating.
She was born December 11, 1929, in Big Spring to Dorothy and George Winslow. She grew up in Big Spring and lived most of her life in Stanton and Midland, moving to Wichita several years ago. She was a cosmetologist and had owned several beauty salons in Midland.
Peggy spent her final years, as an Alzheimer's patient, with her son in Wichita, KS. She enjoyed the little things in life such as peanut butter and banana sandwiches and shopping at thrift stores. She was a responsible dedicated wife and mother, always putting her sons first. Married for over 50 years, helping her husband in accounting practice, she bettered this world in her own, tough as a boot, feisty way.
She is survived by one son: George Atchison of Wichita, Kansas; granddaughter: Tammy Atchison; and one great grandson: Benjamin Rose.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband: Clelan Atchison; one son: Robert Dale "Bobby" Atchison; one granddaughter: Peggy Ruth Atchison; and all of her brothers, Robert, Ed, Euell, and Don Winslow.
She often fondly remembered her sister-in-law: Zora Lu Houston Winslow and kept in contact with her husband's sister, Ruby Atchison Davis. We thank God for Peggy Winslow Atchison and look forward to seeing her in our heavenly home.
Arrangements are by Myers & Smith Funeral Home.
