Peggy Ann DeWolfe, age 68, died peacefully at her home in Yukon surrounded by her son, Brock, and her beloved pets, Abby and Lacy, on Friday, Nov. 15.
Peggy was born July 27, 1945, in Oklahoma City to Walter W. and Jesse Margaret (Kerlee) Loveless. She grew up in Oklahoma City and was a 1963 graduate of Northwest Classen High School. She continued her education, receiving a bachelor’s degree in fashion marketing from Oklahoma State University and a master’s degree in education from Southern Nazarene University. She began her teaching career in 1983 as a second-grade elementary teacher at Putnam City Schools and was a reading specialist in Yukon Public Schools until her retirement in 2002. She was also an adjunct professor at Redlands and OSU-OKC. While teaching at Yukon Public Schools, she wrote and obtained many grants for education at the school.
She was a devoted animal lover and volunteered at Pets and People, making sure every animal was given to a perfect, loving home. Though she had no denominational ties to any church, she was a very dedicated Christian.
She was preceded in death by her parents and her husband, Phillip.
She is survived by her son, Jonathan Brock Loveless of Yukon; brother, Lynn Loveless and wife, Liz of Oklahoma City; nephew, Lon Loveless and wife, Susan, and niece, Lori Whaley and husband, Mark and their daughter, Julia Madison; and last but not least her four-legged babies, Abby and Lacy.
A memorial service was held Nov. 26 in the Chapel of The Good Shepherd at McNeil’s Mustang Funeral Service. Her remains will be placed with her husband, Phil in his crypt at Fort Sill National Cemetery in Elgin.
