Peggy Blackmon Obituary

Ms. Peggy Ann King Blackmon, 82, of 220 Magnolia Vine Lane, Smithfield, was received into the presence of the Lord on Wednesday, November 8, 2023, with family by her side. Born on March 30, 1941, Peggy was the daughter of the late Cleveland Esthal King and Mattie Ernestine Godwin King. She grew-up in the small town of Faison, NC and graduated from North Duplin High School. On October 31, 1959, she married the love of her life, Linwood Douglas Blackmon. While members of Poplar Grove Baptist Church in the Giddensville community, they began building their Christian family. Born of the marriage were two daughters, Athena Rose and Phyllis Ann. Peggy worked with the Sampson County school system for 30 years and retired from Hargrove Elementary School where she worked as the secretary. Her Christ-like passion was carried and shown throughout her life. She had a love for children, helping all that came into her life. She loved cooking, playing Bingo with her Sissy Mamie, singing in the church choir as well as around the house, and she especially loved sitting in her chair admiring the beauty of the visiting hummingbirds year after year.  Peggy leaves behind to cherish her memory, two daughters: Athena Rose Blackmon Brown and husband Bill Brown of Castle Hayne and Phyllis Ann Blackmon of the home in Smithfield; Mamie King Fowler, sister, of Wilmington and several nieces and a nephew of the Wilmington area; two sisters-in law Maxine Blackmon Machado and husband, Marshall of Wake Forest and Maggie Blackmon of Raleigh; two “adopted daughters,” Susie Godwin of Kenly, Glenda Brown of Chinquapin, and two “adopted grand-daughters” Lauren and Avery Brown of Chinquapin, as well as three grand-fur babies, Duke, Shiloh, and Faith-Ann. In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband of fifty-three years, Linwood Douglas Blackmon and her previous fur-babies. Memorials may be made to: Amedisys Hospice Foundation, 3854 American Way, Suite A, Baton Rouge, LA 70816, Rowan Baptist Church, 701 Rowan Rd, Clinton 28328, or a charitable organization of choice.
