WALTERBORO – Mrs. Peggy Craven Bailey, age 68, of Walterboro, entered into eternal rest Wednesday morning, June 8, 2016, at the Trident Medical Center in North Charleston. She was the loving wife of the late Ernest Eugene “Gene” Bailey.
Funeral services were held 2 o’clock Friday afternoon, June 10, 2016, from The Brice W. Herndon and Sons Funeral Chapel, Walterboro. Interment was held Monday in the Beaufort National Cemetery.
Born July 15, 1947, in Colleton County, she was a daughter of the late Eugene and Inez Evans Craven. Peggy was a very sweet and gentle soul who loved life and others more than herself. She was devoted to her family, always remembering each and every birthday, anniversary and special occasion. She enjoyed crossword puzzles, playing endless hours of Solitaire with her family, and watching her “Soaps”.
Even though Peggy, or “Peg-Gal” as she was affectionately known by her loved ones, had no children of her own, she played a vital role in the raising of her nieces and nephews. She is survived by three brothers, Jackie Craven, Sr. and his wife Billie of Walterboro, Carl Craven, Sr. and his wife Jackie of Green Pond, and Bobby Craven of Walterboro; a sister, Frances Steiner and her husband Bill of Branchville; and two aunts, Sally Mae Craven and Ethel Craven, both of Walterboro. She is survived by numerous nieces and nephews; as well as great and great great nieces and nephews; and a dear friend, Joyce Roberts.
