Peggy June Underwood

Funeral service for Peggy Underwood, age 77, will be held on Wednesday, March 20, 2019 at 10:00 a.m. at the South Main Street Church of Christ in Alex, OK.

Peggy June Underwood passed away surrounded by family on Sunday, March 17, 2019.  She was born December 18, 1941 in Delano, CA.  Peggy Graduated from Mapleton High School in Denver, CO in 1959, where she met Terry and Nancy Minne, who remained treasured friends through the remainder of her life.  She moved to Ryan, OK in 1972, where she owned and operated Big Sky Café.  She met and married the love of her life, Scott, here and they were married November 30, 1973.

In 1980, Peggy began a career with McDonald’s, which resulted in her relocation to Duncan, OK and later Stroud, OK.  She retired from McDonald’s as an area supervisor in 1994, at which time the family moved to Alex, OK, where she lived until her passing.  She worked as general manager of Classic Auto Parts Group until her retirement in 2004.  Since then, she enjoyed spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandsons, painting, and doing crossword puzzles.  She was known as “the lady who mails cards for any special occasion” by members of her beloved congregation at the Alex South Main Street Church of Christ.

She is remembered by her family for her sometimes blunt honesty, grit, and overall toughness as she faced several challenges during her lifetime.  She saw things in black and white and believed that there were two ways of doing things–the right way and her way.  If ever there was any doubt, the right answer is to do it her way.  The last few years were challenging in her health, and she faced it with the same tenacity and grace she faced the rest of her years.

She was preceded in death by her parents, Don and Gladys Lewis.  She is survived by her husband, Weldon Scott Underwood of the home, sons Don Underwood and wife Susan, of Woodward, OK and Jim Underwood and wife Kaci of Alex, grandchildren Beth Anne Rhyne and husband Robert, of Corsicana, TX, Ellen Fly and husband Zach, of Hennessey, OK, Jackson Underwood and Erin Underwood of Woodward, OK, as well as four great-grandsons, Parker, Wade, Wyatt, and Bowdie.

Interment will be in the Alex Cemetery.  Arrangements are with McRay Funeral Home.
