Peggy Klein, 75, of Kerrville, left this world to join our Lord on July 28, 2020 at local care facility in Fredericksburg, TX.
Peggy was born on April 9, 1945 in Fredericksburg, Texas. She grew up in Fredericksburg and lived there most of her young adulthood. She moved to Kerrville in 1984, where she has been a resident ever since.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Milton Klein and Myrtle Klein nee Offer and brother, Dexter.
Those left to cherish her memory include her daughter, Priscilla Maughan, of Kerrville, son, Milton Gene Maughan, of Hico, brother Donald Klein, of Fredericksburg, brother Patrick Klein (Jenna), of Bandera, sister, Polly Tree, of Fredericksburg, and sister Regina Griggs, of Fredericksburg, two grandchildren, Amanda Maughan Nichols (Robert), of San Antonio, and Derek Maughan of Kerrville, two great-grandchildren, Rayne Maughan and Jovan Travlus, and a host of nieces, nephews and cousins.
Her brother Patrick would like to leave this remembrance of her: Our sister, Peggy is gone, except in my thoughts and memories. We were not so close when we were very young. I was a little demon that pestered and taunted her until she would draw blood with her fingernails. So angrily would our mother scold her for that. Much later on, during some of my wilder times, I lived in a bedroom of her house for a while, but she said I lived in a suitcase on wheels. Generally we got along ok over the years but for the last few years we became very close friends. For periods of time we would speak monthly at least and often we would speak weekly and several times when I called her or when she called me she would say, “It’s so good to hear your voice!”. She enjoyed so much hearing about the goings-on at Mill Springs Ranch. About ranch work, the wildlife, my dogs, the cattle, and the bison. She often gave me very joyous reports about all of her family, especially Derek, Amanda, Priscilla and her great granddaughter, Rayne. I sent her photos of some puppies born on the ranch recently and she was so very delighted to see them and even called to check on them. As her health was declining I was so very impressed with what you might call her stoicism. She kept upbeat and positive, sometimes matter of fact, about her diminishing health. I am grateful to be able to say in many ways, thoughts and memories of her will remain with me to the close of my age. God Bless Peggy and Heaven help us all! The last thing she said was, "Open the window, so I can fly..."
Per Peggy’s request, there will be no funeral services, only a private family gathering. In lieu of flowers and gifts the family would like to ask donations to be made in her name to a local animal shelter.
Arrangements are under the direction and personal care of the professionals at Kerrville Funeral Home (830) 895-5111.
