Obituary for Peggy Joan Barber (Edwards)

Peggy Joan Barber (Edwards)
Peggy Joan (Edwards) Barber, 80, of Washington, IN, passed away in her home on December 31st. She was born on July 21, 1937 to Raymond and Margaret (McGhee) Edwards, in Washington, IN. She graduated from Washington High School in 1955, and married Maurice (Morris) Barber on October 19, 1956. Peggy jumped into farm life with Morris, with only the two of them building the farm’s first grain bin. For another 60 years, Peggy continued to be integral to the operations of Barber farms. Morris and Peggy raised three children together Kim Anita, Karen Marie, and Kelly Maurice, whom they loved dearly. Peggy loved cooking, and was known for her ability to whip up a good meal for however many people Morris brought in the back door that evening. It was this kind of unwavering devotion to serving her family and the farm, that Morris’s favorite phrase, “Hey Peggy”, was born.
In Peggy’s later years, she could be found “beating the crowd” on her early morning trips to Wal-Mart, taking road trips with her friends Betty, Linda, and Shirley, or sitting at the kitchen table taking care of farm business.
Peggy is survived by her daughter Karen (Mark) Radcliffe of Port Charlotte, Florida, her son Kelly Barber of Washington, Indiana, grandchildren TJ (Heather) Wirts, Devin (Jake) Crouch, Drew Wirts, Cassidy Radcliffe, Casey (Jason) Smith, Mikala (Adam) May, Kaden Barber, and six great-grandchildren. Also surviving is her sister, Linda Smith of Washington, IN.
She is preceeded in death by her husband Morris Barber, daughter Kim Barber, brother Jerry Edwards, and sister Sandy Hunter.
Services will be held at Gill’s Funeral Services in Washington, IN. The visitation will be on Thursday January 4th from 3pm-7pm and the funeral will be on Friday January 5th at 10am. Peggy will be buried at Bethel United Methodist Church.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to Mt. Gilead Church.
