Mrs. Peggy Fender Duncan, age 84, of Marion, passed away Tuesday, August 27, 2019 at her home following a period of declining health. A native of Madison County, Peggy was born on November 19, 1934 to the late Jim and Easter Rice Fender. She was employed with the McDowell County School System in the Dietary Department. A wonderful mother, grandmother and dedicated wife, her hard work and willingness to help others will be long remembered. She enjoyed puttering in her flower and vegetable gardens, and crocheted many useful and beautiful objects. Her true love and calling, however, was raising her kids well. Peggy lived her life as a lovely example to her children and grandchildren of Christ’s love. She was a member of East Marion Holiness Church. Her husband, Paul Dean Edgar Duncan, preceded her in death.
Surviving are four children, Becky Elliott and husband Van, Russell Duncan and Tim Duncan and wife Denise, all of Marion, and Pam Guy, of the home; nine grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren, and her beloved canine companion, J.J.
