Peggy Lee Glass

May 27, 1951-Mar. 14, 2019

Peggy Lee Glass, daughter of Louis and Barbara (Jones) Benda, was born May 27, 1951, in Shelby.

She had many fun times with her sister, JoAnn and their friends. Growing up in the Shelby community, she attended the public schools and graduated from Shelby High School with the Class of 1969. Peggy worked various jobs throughout her life. For many years she worked in production for Thermo King Manufacturing.

On Oct. 7, 1978, she was married to Raymond L. Glass. Together they raised five children: Melinda, Scott, Tiffany, Chad and Tim. Peggy lived a short, but happy life. She and Ray have had many great memories. They raised their children with love and support. They went on many fishing trips to the river. They loved to travel to see family, and spent many weekends going back to Peggy’s hometown to stay with her mother.

Peggy finally felt more at home when she moved to the quiet town of Oak. They would go on gambling trips, many of which involved taking her mom, Barbara. She enjoyed anything outside. In shorts and a t-shirt with no shoes was what made Peggy the happiest. She enjoyed watching all her grandkids and great-grandkids grow. Going to auctions and collecting oil lamps were among her many passions. She helped in her community whenever she could, with Ray right along her side. Peggy and Ray had and still have a never-ending love. In her enduring days, Ray was right by her side and her family never left her. Her journey on Earth may have been short, but it was the happiest.

She will be forever remembered by her mother, Barbara of Shelby; husband, Raymond; son, Tim (Lindsay) of Oak; daughter, Tiffany Spurling; son, Scott Glass of Hastings; son, Chad Bloebaum of San Diego; 12 grandchildren; 3 great-grandchildren; brothers, Jr. Benda (Kathy) and Mike Benda of Shelby; and sister, JoAnn Campbell of Columbus; other relatives and a community of friends.

Peggy was preceded in death by her father, Louis; daughter, Melinda Tockey; granddaughter, Kourtney Krieger; and brother-in law, Tim Campbell.
