Peggy McCaleb Parent
Peggy Carlene (McCaleb) Parent of Crab Orchard, WV, passed away at the age of 69 on Wednesday, June 21, 2018,

The youngest of 3 children, Peggy was born on November 10, 1948 and grew up in Sophia, WV. She graduated from Sophia High School in 1966. Peggy married the love of her life, Larry Parent, in 1967. They celebrated 51 years of marriage this past March.

While she held various jobs over the years, her favorite role by far was that of homemaker, wife and mother. Peggy and Larry have two children. Their daughter, Carla Parent Rotsch resides in Charleston, WV with her husband, Steve. Their son, Kevin Lee Parent lives in Crab Orchard, WV. She was a doting grandmother to one granddaughter, Halee Brooke Parent. A devoted wife, mother and grandmother, family was everything to Peggy.

In addition to her immediate family, those left to cherish her memory include her two siblings and their spouses as well as brother’s and sister’s-in-law. Peggy also has a large extended family of nieces and nephews whom she adored.

Peggy enjoyed going on family camping trips when her children were younger. She took pride in planting flowers around her home and enjoyed watching birds that would come the many feeders she placed throughout her yard. Peggy enjoyed all kinds of music and loved to dance. Peggy loved her pets, and over the years had many dogs and cats. She loved being around the water, whether it be the ocean, a lake or the back yard pool.

Peggy had a way of making everyone feel welcome in her home. No one ever left her house hungry, and you didn’t walk out without first getting a big hug and a warm smile. She was a kind and nurturing person and her sweet spirit touched everyone she knew.
