Peggy was born on August 18, 1933, in Abilene to Carl and Eula (Hicks) Muston. She married the love of her life, Jimmie Sturrock, on November 25, 1960, and they shared almost 60 years together in laughter, love, and life.

Peggy was a giving and kind person, devoting much of her time to serving her community through her work. A graduate of Abilene High School and of Hardin Simmons University, she worked hard as the Youth Director at Abilene YWCA, Executive Director of the West Texas Girl Scout Council, and as Manager of Abilene Women’s Club. She also served as Governor of the Altrusa International in 1999 and served on the Abilene-Emery Chapter of the American Institute of Parliamentarians. She spent tireless hours bringing joy and her kindness to everyone, spreading it as much as possible to those she came in contact with. She was a wealth of knowledge, and a stickler for order.

Peggy was preceded in death by her parents.

Left behind to cherish her memory are her husband of almost 60 years, Jimmie Sturrock of Abilene; one sister, Patty Muston Bowdoin of North Carolina; and several nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
