Peggy Cheek, 69, died Jan. 7, after a brief illness. She was born in Flint, Michigan to Charles and Ophelia (Tyson) Cheek on Aug. 1, 1946.
First enjoying a career as a small-town librarian, she segued into a second career as a medium-town government functionary, and finally retired in San Marcos, Texas. Delightful and exasperating in equal measure, she will be remembered fondly by many and remembered by even more.
She was predeceased by her father, Charles, her mother, Ophelia, and her beloved dog, Boudreaux. She is survived by a son, Charles.
A private family memorial service will be held.
