Peggy Jean Newman

August 6, 1931 — April 19, 2024

Laredo, TX

Peggy J. Newman, 92, joined our Lord in His heavenly kingdom on Friday, April 19, 2024.
 
A devout member of the First Baptist Church, Peggy's faith was the foundation of her life, guiding her through both joyous celebrations and challenging times. Her dedication extended beyond the walls of the church, as she selflessly contributed to organizations such as the United Way, the Salvation Army, Casa de Misericordia, Habitat for Humanity, Laredo Food Bank, Catholic Charities, and Make A Wish Foundation embodying the spirit of service and altruism. She was the first woman to ever be appointed and serve as a member of the IBC Board. Her contributions to serving on the board for twenty years made a huge impact on the city of Laredo. 

 

A loyal supporter of the Dallas Cowboys, Peggy’s enthusiasm for her favorite team added an extra sparkle to her vibrant personality. Her love for her family knew no bounds, and she cherished every moment spent with her loved ones, creating unforgettable memories that will be forever treasured.

 

She was preceded in death by “the love of her life”, her husband, Bernard “B.P.” Newman; her parents, William L. and Beulah Beheler; sons, Joel Pearce Newman, and David Thomas Newman.
