|Birth: ||Sep. 19, 1962|
Peggy Sue Houser was born Sept. 19, 1962, and was murdered in the summer of 1981. Her mother, Hattie M. Oglesbee of Piqua, died in 2001, and her stepfather, Donald P. Oglesbee of Piqua, died in 1997.
She is survived by her father, Steve T. Houser Sr. of Tampa Bay, Fla.; two brothers, Larry D. Houser and Stevie T. Houser, both of Tampa, Fla.; two sisters, Sandra Houser-Prieser of Tampa, Fla., and Karen Houser-Wood of Sidney and formerly of Piqua. In addition she leaves behind many nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews, which she wasn't given a chance to enrich their lives.
"Mom, can I come home?" were the last words our mother heard from Peggy. "Yes, come home, I love you," was her answer. As mom waited, minutes became hours, then days and now over the 30 years it took to bring Peggy home. A promise us kids gave to mom a few years before she passed away was, "If you find Peggy, and she is not alive and I am not here no more, bring Peggy home and bury her beside me."
At 1 p.m. Tuesday, April 3, 2012, a graveside service will be held at Forest Hill Cemetery, Section 5, with Pastor Dan Hathaway of Piqua Apostolic Temple officiating. Peggy will be laid to rest inches from our mother.
Peggy attended Tampa City Schools and Piqua City Schools. She enjoyed life to the fullest. She was sweet, soft-spoken, and free-spirited with compassion towards life, but she had the strength to hold her two feet on the ground when she needed. She gave smiles and laughter and joyful times. We were grateful to have Peggy for a short time and we will never forget her. She was our friend, our sister, and our daughter. She was stolen from our lives, but not from our hearts.
"Peggy you are home!"
