Peggy Spofford, of Cecilton, Md., went to be with the Lord on Saturday, July 20, 2013, at Laurelwood Care Center of Elkton, Md. She was 76 years, 7 months, and 28 days of age. She was born on Nov. 22, 1936, in Corbin, to the late Lloyd McFarland and Susie Worley. She is also preceded in death by her daughter, Barbara Baker.
Growing up in the small town of Corbin, Peggy learned early the value of hard work to earn a dollar. A good portion of her life was spent building a restaurant business in midcoast Maine. Throughout the years she also spent time waitressing at the famous Stone Mountain Resort in Atlanta, Ga. She enjoyed the friendship of her fellow workers and even a few celebrities that had the pleasure of meeting her along the way. Many knew her by her nickname “Pooh.”
An artistic talent ran deep with her and transcended to her children and grandchildren as well. She could often be found sketching, painting or writing letters to her family in her spare time. Peggy also had a strong relationship with the Lord. She really enjoyed reading, knitting, and was a heck of a cook. Just ask anyone who had her famous spaghetti sauce. She was always quick with a joke and a heartfelt smile to follow. She will be deeply missed by her family and all the hearts she touched in life.
She is survived by three sons, Bernie Spofford and wife Heather, of Cecilton, Md., Brian Spofford and wife Debbie, of Fulton, Del., and Barry Spofford and wife Stacy, of Thomaston, Maine; six grandchildren, Heidi McIntyre and husband Kevin, Shawn Baker and wife Lauren, Zachary Spofford, Sydney Spofford, Casey Spofford, Matt Busick; two great-grandchildren, Enzo and Kaitlin; and a host of other family and friends to mourn her passing.
