Amory – Peggy A. Tartt Hill, 75, met her Savior face to face on Saturday, October 10, 2020. Born on July 2, 1945, in Amory, MS, she was a daughter of the late Bernis Tartt and Merigold Kyle Tartt.

Peggy grew up in Monroe County and graduated from Nettleton High School. She was blessed by God with a loving family and great jobs during her lifetime. A hard worker, after many years of service Peggy retired from Tru-Temper where she was in the position of Drawbench Operator. After retirement, she helped work estate sales with one of her close friends Rita Byrd, who owns Bird Nest Antiques Estate Sales.

She was of the Baptist faith and believed in Christ. Always having a smile on her face, Peggy lived out her faith daily. She was an outgoing, loving, friendly, and compassionate woman. Her family meant the world to her and she enjoyed hosting gatherings and cooking for all. An ancestry buff, Peggy appreciated one’s heritage and she loved researching the roots of her family and others. Peggy liked the thrill of buying antiques, determining their background, then selling them to others to enjoy.
