Obituaries » Peggy Marie Shifflett

Peggy Marie Shifflett, 83, of Warrenton, passed away on November 17, 2020, at Fauquier Hospital.

She was born September 6, 1937, in Washington, D.C., to the late Leonard Robert and Lois May Chisholm.

At the age of 20, she married her country boy, Melvin Eugene Shifflett, and joined him in his passion for farming. They were married for 50 years. She joined him in the fields as they cut and baled hay. It was not unusual to see her driving one of the trucks and tractors in the field. Peggy canned fruits and vegetables and made jelly for her family. Every year they enjoyed going to the county fair with their children in August. Later in life, they enjoyed hosting family reunions and giving those memorable hayrides to all that came.

Peggy enjoyed reading, listening to country music and spending time with the grandchildren and great-grandchildren. She looked forward to watching Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy every night. Later in life, she was introduced to modern technology and could be found playing games on her iPad while asking Alexa to play classic country music.

She was a loving daughter, sister, wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend. She will be truly missed by all.

She was preceded in death by her husband, Melvin Eugene Shifflett, and her sisters Joan Bradley, Charlotte Williams and Shirley Nanney.

She is survived by her sisters, Nancy Lizana and Delores “Dee” Pfeiffer; her brothers, Leonard “Sonny” Chisholm and Eddie Chisholm; her four children and their spouses, Sharon and David Neitz, Sue and Daryl Whitt, Melvin and Susie Shifflett, and Allan and Patty Shifflett; 11 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.

The family will receive friends and relatives from 5 to 7 p.m. Friday, November 20, at Moser Funeral Home in Warrenton. The service will take place at noon Saturday, November 21, at the funeral home, with COVID-19 restrictions in place. Burial will follow at 2 p.m. at Stonewall Memory Gardens at 12004 Lee Highway near Manassas.
