June 5, 1925 - November 10, 2017
Peggi Ellen Lincoln, age 92 of Conyers, left this earth to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on Friday, November 10, 2017. Peggi was born in Girard, Kansas on June 5, 1925 to Ethel E. Thatcher Gates and Eckford Hanley Gates. Mrs. Lincoln was preceded in death by her parents; husband of 30 years, Sidney E. Lincoln; and her daughters, Janet Vera Stein and Kristi Ann Walker. In 1986, Mrs. Lincoln retired from the Civil Service at Randolph Air Force Base in Texas after 20 years of service. Being an avid reader all of her life, she volunteered for the next 27 years at the Universal City Library, TX. During that time, she used her God given talent and love for books to help establish and serve as Librarian for the Childrens Library at Oak Hills Church in San Antonio, TX. Peggi loved gardening, crafts, needlework and created many beautiful stained-glass pieces. Golf was her sporting game of choice, which she considered herself 'lousy at,' but still gave it a go each week; and volunteered for many years at the Valero Texas Open Golf Tournament in San Antonio. In 2013 she moved to Conyers to live with her daughter and son-in-law. She became an active member of Ebenezer United Methodist Church - joining Prime Timers, Ruth Circle and Sunday School. Additionally, she continued her volunteer work at the Friends of Nancy Guinn Library. Peggi carried herself humbly and was always ready with a friendly smile and especially enjoyed a good laugh. She loved God and was deeply rooted in her faith which carried her through many difficult trials during her life. Peggi was always the example of a Christian woman who personified the fruit of the Spirit-love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, and self-control. While we are deeply saddened by her departure from this world, we celebrate knowing she's in heaven fully restored by the loving hand of our Father and know we will be reunited again. She is survived by daughter and son-in-law, Pamela and Roger Berger of Conyers; granddaughters, Lisa Anderson, Sarah Strait Cruce (John); great-grandchildren, Isabella, Olivia, Hunter and Hailey. She is further survived by Kathryn Lincoln Slaughter (Ken), David Lincoln, Alfred Lincoln (Teresa), Carolyn Lincoln Jenkins (Dean), and Nancy Lincoln Blanchard (Steve), all of Texas and her faithful caregiver of 2 years Shannon Montgomery. A Memorial service will be held Sunday, November 19, 2017 at 3:00 PM at Ebenezer United Methodist Church with Chris Branscomb officiating. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in her memory to Ebenezer UMC , 2533 Stanton Rd. SE, Conyers, GA 30012. Condolences may be submitted on-line at www.scotward.com.
