Mabel "Peggy" Hoskins, 86, of Fort Pierce, died June 8, 2007 in a Fort Pierce nursing home. Born September 28, 1921, in Cowley, WY, Peggy grew up in Morgantown, WV. She was the daughter of Mabel and Homer Hoskins and was a graduate of West Virginia University where she served as secretary to the dean of the graduate school before coming to Fort Pierce in 1957. One of the original staff members, Peggy retired from Indian River Community College after thirty-two years of service. She began her career there as administrative secretary to Dr. Maxwell King and continued in a variety of positions until she retired.

When the college celebrated its 25th anniversary, Peggy wrote an article, "As the years pass by, we tend to forget many things, but one never forgets the feeling of pride and humbleness in being part of starting something new, especially something as great as an education institution."

Peggy, always interested in public service, served as president of the Lioness Club of Port Saint Lucie; secretary of the Professional Business Women's Association; member of the Daughters of the American Revolution; supporter of the Girl Scouts; and elder and active member of First Presbyterian Church, Fort Pierce.

Peggy is survived by her brother, Dr. Paul Hoskins and wife, Jean; nephew, Steve Hoskins and wife, Beth; and two great nieces, Taylor and Page Hoskins.

Peggy was predeceased by her parents and her nephew, Mark Hoskins.

A graveside service will be held at 10 am on June 12, 2007, at Riverview Memorial Park, Fort Pierce. Dr. Ray Gamble will officiate. Friends who wish may contribute to the Indian River Community College Foundation, 3209 Virginia Avenue, Fort Pierce, FL 34981.

Yates Funeral Home, Fort Pierce, has charge of the arrangements.
