Ms. Peggy's favorite past time was raising her grandchildren and gardening.  She loved all kinds of flowers, even artificial ones.  She loved them so much that once we threw some of her flowers away and she yelled, " why would you throw away my flowers"?  You can bet that never happened again!  She loved her wigs and you couldn't catch her without one on.  She also loved clothes, and she would move them from the house tp the garage, from ther garage to the basement in hopes that someone would be able to use them one day.  They are still there!

Peggy Ruth Christian accepted Jesus Christ as her Lord and Savior on Friday, May 22, 2020.  She was preceded in death by her parents and siblings, Sarah Christian, Clarence Christian, Mathew Christian, Henry Christian, Jr.,(aka June) and Mack Christian.

She leaves to cherish her loving memories to two loving sons, Conroy Christian and Thomas Christian of East Orange, NY; two daughters, Christine Christian of Asheboro, NC and Ernestine Christian of Brooklyn, NY; three sisters, Hazel Deberry of Orange, NJ, Grace Robinson of Mt. Gilead, NC and Margaret Christian of Newark, NJ; two brothers, James Christian of Wadeville, NC and Alphonso Christian (Gloria) of Irvington, NJ; 17 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren, and a host of nieces, nephews, cousmms and special friends.
