Obituary for Peggy Overton Marguerat

Peggy Overton Marguerat, 93, of Farragut, passed away on September 27, 2018 in Knoxville.

Peggy was born in Fountain City, TN to Otis & Margaret Overton on September 26, 1925. She married Elbert Marguerat on June 12, 1943 in Knoxville, TN. She was a longtime member of First Baptist Concord.

To describe Peggy in one word is hard to do, but to her family and friends that know her, it would be ‘Love’.
First and foremost, her love of the Lord. Her faith was strong and she shared that with everyone she knew.
Her love of cooking, which was her ministry to so many. It would be a rare occasion to walk into her home and not see her busy in the kitchen making something delicious for her family. No matter the occasion.
Peggy’s love of fashion was widely known among her friends and family. Whether she was out shopping the department stores with friends, or creating a masterpiece on her sewing machine, it would always make her smile and bring her such joy.
Love of family that was the center of her world. She had such pride in everyone and made it a point to tell them. Whether rejoicing in happy occasions or crying in time of sorrow, Peggy was there to comfort and support her family through it all.
With all the love that Peggy had, none could be stronger than her love for the man that stole her heart in high school, Elbert Marguerat. It was a love many only see in the movies. She would say that she was the lucky one to find a man that treated her as good and love her so tenderly, but Elbert would most certainly argue that fact.
The love that she shared is her legacy and will live on in all those who knew her. Peggy and Elbert are together again in the presence of the Lord, and though there are tears of sorrow here on earth, there are also tears of joy knowing she has finally received her greatest reward.

Peggy is preceded in death by parents; her husband Elbert; siblings Meb Overton, Sally Kirby, Betsy Tucker; son Randy Marguerat, daughters Nancy Nelson and Pat Sloan.

Peggy is survived by her children: sons Mike Marguerat (Mary Beth), Al Marguerat (Kim), daughter-in-law Marie Marguerat (Randy, deceased); grandchildren Randy Jr. Marguerat (Kim), Jason Marguerat (Shay), Angie (Kevin), Brian Nelson, Wes Marguerat, Stephen Sloan (Emile), Laura Rupe (Mike), Scott Marguerat (Marta), Alyson Marguerat, Michael Sloan. Great grandchildren Brit (Jennifer), Mark, Taylor, Sydney, Drew, Caden, Cooper, Molly, Parker, Courtnie, Lauren, and Sophia. Great great grandchild Gynjer; as well as a host of nieces and nephews.
