Peggy Smith Goodman

Marion, Virginia

Peggy Smith Goodman, 82, passed away peacefully at Valley Health Care in Chilhowie, VA on Sunday, April 30, 2017. She was born on July 20, 1934 in Cleghorn Valley (Marion), VA, to the late Paul and Elizabeth Harper Smith.

In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of 47 years, Eugene (Whitey) Goodman; and her sister, Sandra S. Jurkiewicz.

Peggy was a lifelong member of Laurel Springs United Methodist Church, where she taught Gods word to numerous children as a Sunday School Teacher.She was also a member of the church Choir.

She was certainly known as an avid bowler! Peggy bowled in 40 plus state tournaments and was inducted into the M.W.B.A Hall of Fame in 1998.

She was a loyal Virginia Tech Hokie fan and never missed a Hokie football game!

Peggy was a graduate of Marion Sr. High School. She served on the Board of Directors of the Lincoln Theatre. She worked tirelessly, alongside others to help renovate the theatre. Her work has certainly paid off, as many come from all around to attend the numerous venues at the very theatre she once sold tickets during the early 50’s.

Above all, Peggy will be remembered as a loving wife, mother, “Granna,” and friend to all who knew her. She will be missed!

Peggy was my dear sweet cousin . I am so sorry to hear of her passing. We were both born in the same year and had same first name. I have so many childhood memories of her and the family. My mother, Blanche (her Mother's Sister), and our family use to visit them on Sundays in Marion and they would visit us in Bristol. I loved Aunt Lizzie and Uncle Paul so much. I will never forget Peggy's Jovial personality. I am so sorry I missed her funeral. I live in Salem Va , and I see in the obit that her Daughter Kim lives in Roanoke. I will try to find her phone no and call her. I just ran across this while just looking thru the obits. Sending prayers to family and friends.
