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.

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.
