Peggy Joyce Percival

NORMAN — Peggy Joyce Percival, 85, passed away Tuesday, Jan. 15, 2013, in Noble.

Services will be 1:30 p.m. Sunday at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witnesses, 2201 E. Imhoff in Norman.

She was born Oct. 3, 1927, in Ryan to Cleopha and Alma (Fagan) Brooks. Peggy was a Jehovah’s Witnesses and symbolized her dedication Sept. 6, 1958. She enjoyed many years of service, sharing her beliefs with others.

She was a wonderful cook and her door was always open at meal times. Some of the favorites were her biscuits and gravy, fish frys and pot roast on Sundays. Peggy liked playing her electric organ, going camping, fishing, hiking, water skiing and crocheting. She loved animals, and autumn was her favorite time of the year.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Elmer of 56 years; son, Eddie Ray Percival; grandson, James Michael Percival; her parents, Alma and Cleopha Brooks; sister, Cliffidell Brooks; and two brothers, Bill Brooks and Ray Brooks.

Peggy is survived by one son, Jerry Don Percival; two daughters, Peggy “Tillie” Percival and Donna Hyer and beloved son-in-law, Bill; two brothers, Darrell Brooks and David Brooks; two sisters, Barbara Little and Dian Gornall; four grandchildren, David Hyer, Daniel Hyer, Michael Percival and Toby Percival; eight great-grandchildren; one great-great grandchild; and numerous nieces and nephews.

Peggy’s family would like to give a special thanks to all of her friends and family who loved and supported her and to the staff at Noble Health Care Center and Loving Care Hospice.

Memorial donations may be made to the Alzheimer’s Association, 2123 N. Classen Blvd., Oklahoma City, OK 73106.
