Peggy Loretta Atkinson Eury, 63, of Harrells, left this earthly life for her eternal rest on Tuesday, November 16, 2021.
She was born February 15, 1958, in Duplin County and was the daughter of Claude M. Atkinson and the late Minnie Yvonne Daughtry Atkinson.
Peggy is a member of Wells Chapel Baptist Church.
Surviving is her devoted husband of 43 years, Danny Eury of Harrells; her children, Melissa Lynn Lopez of Rocky Point, Michael Claude Evans and wife, Ingrid of Harrells and Kelly Loretta James of Harrells; grandchildren, Kayla Hill, Anthony Lopez, Marissa Lopez, Cayden Lambert, Ethan James, Blake James, Daniella Evans, Dylan Evans and Austin Evans; 3 great grandchildren, sisters, Susan Hunter and husband, Elwood of Scotland Neck and Ellen Miller and husband, Russ of Wilmington; brother, Arlan Claude Atkinson and wife, Rebecca of North Dakota; her canine companions, “Pee Wee”, “Gabby” and “Precious”; numerous nieces, nephews, extended family and friends who loved Peggy dearly.
Peggy was a caring wife and loving mother, grandmother and sister who was dedicated to her family. She was a simple woman who enjoyed the simple things in life, but being a wife, mother and grandmother was her favorite. Peggy was a great cook, and was the happiest when her family was together, enjoying the delicious food she prepared. She was a friend to all, a strong yet gentle presence who looked for and encouraged the best in everyone. She enjoyed going to the mountains and yard sales. Peggy lived her life with a spirit of patience, gratitude, wonder and love. With a big heart, Peggy loved her children and grandchildren and would go to the ends of the earth for them. Most of all. Peggy loved her Lord and is now in His presence forevermore. Peggy will surely be missed but treasured memories of her will remain in the hearts of those who knew and loved her.
