Peggy Ruth Walton, 72, of Salem, went to be with the Lord on Thursday, July 25, 2019.
Peggy was a kind and tender-hearted woman would do anything for anyone she came across. She was a devout Pentecostal woman, who stood strong in her faith and lived her life according to the word to the best of her abilities no matter what this life brought her way. Her kitty cats were her pride and joy. Over the years she has given many strays a home and treated each one as if they were her children.

Left behind to cherish her memory is her son, Dallas Walton Jr.; Sisters Patty Flowers (Jimmy), Wilda Correll (Henry), Karen Bell ( Ronnie), and Vicky Hess (Billy); Four Grandchildren and her very dear friend Silvia Washington;
