Peggy was born October 3, 1934, in Gorman, TX. She graduated from Comanche High in 1953 and attended Brownwood Business School. In 1949, she met the love of her life, Donald Robertson. They were married on July 17, 1955, and they enjoyed 66 years together.
Peggy attended school in a one-room schoolhouse in Newburg, TX, through 8th grade. She then went to Comanche High School where she met Donald on the first day of her Freshman year. Even though he teased her about coming from the country to attend “finishing school” they became great friends. After waiting two years for him to ask her out, she finally took matters into her own hands. She asked Donald to the Sadie Hawkins dance in 11th grade, and this is where their love story began. They were best friends and inseparable to the very end.
They lived in Comanche until 1968 when they moved to Clifton, TX. She was active at First Baptist Church of Clifton where she served as Church Secretary for many years. She chaired and served on many committees, taught Sunday School and enjoyed working with the youth department. Peggy was always willing to help when needed. She served as a volunteer at Clifton Lutheran Sunset Home and served in a sewing ministry that repaired garments for nursing home residents. After moving to Robinson in 2009, she became active at Meadowbrook Baptist Church. She loved her Sunday School class and enjoyed making desserts for the Wednesday night meals. She loved to cook and always prepared food for those in need. Peggy was very compassionate and loved to send cards to those in need.
Peggy fiercely loved her children and grandchildren. She loved family gatherings and an opportunity to cook for them. She especially loved trying out new recipes but her children weren’t always receptive. They wanted her famous chocolate cake for every occasion. They felt there was no way to improve on perfection! She loved holidays, especially Christmas. Her house was always full of Christmas decorations, many of which she had made. Her children and grandchildren loved the special decorations she put on top of their packages that were removed and used year after year.
Peggy loved all things Baylor. She and Donald attended Baylor football and basketball games from 1973 through 2019. She especially loved Lady Bears Basketball.
She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Belle Levisay, a son, Ronnie, age 7, a brother, Jack Levisay, and a sister, Bettie Sue Levisay.
