Daughter of John Arthur and Byrna Marguerite Sigler Adair
16 years - Auto accident



Clinton MO - (Peggy) Margarite Adair was born Sept. 17, 1922, in Clinton, the first child of John Adair, postal employee, and Byrna Sigler Adair, native Clintonians. A lovely child from earliest infancy, serious, dependable and loving God, she attended the Washington grade school and the Christian Church Sunday School. Entering high school three years ago, her ability as a student and her aptitude and versatility in all activities made her outstanding in classes and extra curricular interests. A leader in school life, she would have been in line for class honors at graduation next year. She was made a member of the Student Council in her freshman year, remaining on it until death, as she had a clear, evenly balanced sense of right and fair dealing. She was also an active Booster girl, original and enthusiastic; a member of the Dramatic Club where she was as dependable as an adult, and as a commercial student was a member of the team entering the county contests last year. Peggy had, since she was 13, been a member of the Order of Rainbow for girls, the last of June attending their Grand Assembly in Springfield. She held the Nature color Station. A member of Christian Church, she was regular in attendance at Sunday School and the middle of June was one of the representatives of the Y.C.A. at the Youth's Conference at Park College, Parkville, Mo. Pretty, modest and sweet; well mannered, softly spoken, kind and dutiful, her life had been as exemplary as the loveliest flower in God's Kingdom of earth, for it brought only happiness and beauty to parents and friends, while in blossom here. Surviving her are her grief stricken parents and little sister, Marilyn, her two grandmothers, Mrs. Ike Adair and Mrs. A. W. Sigler, all of Clinton and other distressed kinspeople. Funeral services will be held at the Christian Church, of which Peggy was a member, Thursday morning. Burial at Englewood. (She was killed at noon Tuesday, July 4th 1939, on Highway 52, one mile east of Clinton when the car in which she was riding failed to make a curve. The driver, Kenneth Kaiser, was also killed. Another passenger, Jack Kent, escaped with minor injuries.)


Burial; 6 July 1939
