Peggy Adkins 1947-2009

August 27th, 1947 - July 29th, 2009

Peggy Faye Adkins, daughter of James A. Fielder and Clara Mae (West) James, was born August 27, 1947 in Paducah, Kentucky. As a young girl, Peggy grew up and attended school in Murray, Kentucky. She was a member of the Church of Christ. Peggy was a wonderful mother and she was blessed with three children: Sheila, Rhonda and Richie. She always did what she could to provide for them and was there for them. On October 31, 1981, Peggy was united in marriage to Bill Adkins. They shared over 20 years of marriage together before he preceded her in death on July 5, 2002. Peggy was a very giving person and had the talent of caring for the elderly. She worked in a nursing home while living in Carrollton, Missouri for several years and after moving to the Ozarks, she managed the Applewood Group Home in Lebanon, Missouri for a few years. She loved helping people that could not care for themselves and was always looking for ways to make their lives a little bit better. In her spare time, Peggy enjoyed reading and visiting with friends and family. She had the gift of gab and all she had to do was find someone to listen. But her greatest joy came from spending time with her grandchildren. She adored them and they were her whole world. Peggy passed away at 10:35 A.M. Wednesday, July 29, 2009 at her residence at the age of 61 years, 11 months and 2 days. She will be sadly missed by everyone that knew her. Peggy leaves to cherish her memory her parents: James and Jean Fielder of Murray, KY and Clara James of the state of TN; three children: Sheila Acosta of St. Robert, MO, Rhonda Rowland of Lebanon, MO and Richie Brawner of Eldridge, MO; seven siblings: Christy Thomasson, Kevin Fielder, Patsy Powell and Glenna Pritchert, all of the state of KY, Billy James of the state of TN, Robert James of the state of TX and George Bell of the state of FL; 11 grandchildren; 7 great grandchildren; several other relatives and friends. Visitation was held from 10:00 - 12:00 Noon on Saturday, August 1, 2009 in the Memorial Chapels and Crematory. Private burial followed in the Mt. Rose Memorial Park Cemetery of Lebanon, Missouri. Memorial contributions may be made in memory of Peggy Adkins and may be left at Memorial Chapels and Crematory.
