MARBLE FALLS, Texas — Peggy Rose Washington of Horseshoe Bay, Texas, passed away July 27, 2017. She was born in Healdton, Okla. on December 5, 1930 to Calvin Dennis Scifres and Velva Francis Walk Scifres. Peggy was preceded in death by her parents, and husbands Walter Barnett and Richard (Dick) Dix Washington.
She is survived by her sister, Carol Ann Scifres Keeton; nieces; great-nieces; and a great-nephew. She is also survived by Dick’s  children, Margaret Washington Williams and husband, Lee and family; and Richard Washington and wife, Eileen and family.
Dick and Peggy moved to Marble Falls, Texas in 2007 to be closer to his son Richard. They enjoyed many activities over the years. Peggy enjoyed riding around in the spring with Eileen and Keagan to look at the bluebonnets and other wild flowers. After Dick passed away, every Christmas Eve she would go to Richard and Eileen’s house and watch the grandchildren open presents and eat a big Christmas dinner. She loved animals and loved when Eileen would bring her Chihuahua “Dot” to visit her. Peggy loved everything to do with the Bible. She did not care what denomination it was, she just enjoyed learning as much as possible. Her other interests included sewing and things to do with finance.
