Peggy H. Nauman

Peggy H. Nauman, 84, of Roanoke went to be with her Lord and Savior on Tuesday, April 25, 2017, after a long courageous battle with dementia. The dignity and strength with which she fought were an inspiration to her family.

Peggy was born October 4, 1932, in Stanley, Virginia, where she grew up and graduated from high school.

In 1956, she moved to Roanoke where she was a stay-at-home mom until her children were raised. In addition to being a devoted wife, mother and grandmother, she was employed with Sears for more than 22 years. She loved her work and many friends.

Peggy was a member of Preston Oaks Baptist Church for more than 50 years. There she served as teacher, Sunday school secretary, and cared for many babies in the church nursery throughout the years.

Surviving are her husband of 66 years, Dennis E. Nauman; daughter, Gayle Nauman Deel of Roanoke; son, Douglas E. Nauman (Anne) of High Point, N.C.; grandchildren (who lovingly called her “Nan”) and whom she loved so much, Christopher Deel of Roanoke, Sean Deel of Nashville, Tenn., and Kimberleigh Anne Nauman of High Point, N.C.; sisters, Shirley Dovel of Stanley, Va.; and Delores Ferrell of Shenandoah, Va.

The children and grandchildren extend their deepest appreciation and loving thanks to Angela Bradshaw and to Good Samaritan Hospice for all their kindness, love and support during this difficult time. To our father and grandfather, we extend our thanks and appreciation for the continual care that he provided for mom in their home. His love for mom, sacrifice and devotion will never be forgotten.

In lieu of flowers, please make memorial gifts to the Alzheimer’s Association to aid in their research for a cure.

A celebration of Peggy’s life was held at 2 p.m. on Saturday, April 29, 2017, at Simpson Funeral Home, 5160 Peters Creek Road, with Dr. Joe Greene and the Rev. Randy Martin officiating.
