Tribute


Peggy Ann Bostwick, 82 of Griffin, Ga, passed away on May 24, 2023. Peggy was born on January 14, 1941 to Hugh Dorsey Bass and Corine Pitts in Griffin, Ga. She was the second of their 4 children and is survived by her sister, Melinda Smith. Peggy graduated from Griffin High in 1959. While in high school, Peggy met the love of her life, Tom Bostwick. They married June 25, 1960 and spent 62 years together. Peggy and Tom went on to have 5 daughters. After retiring as a lab technician at Thomaston Mills, she became a dog groomer and breeder. She loved their dogs Amy, Molly and Lucy and cat, Kitty Tom very much.

She will be remembered for the compassion and love she bestowed upon her family. She was an excellent cook with a passion for decadent desserts that all enjoyed very much. In her spare time, she was very talented in making Arts & Crafts, especially beautiful flower arrangements, which she enjoyed selling at her yard sales. She loved watching football with her family. The Price is Right, Jimmy Swaggart and Family Feud were some of her favorite shows. Her favorite pastime was shopping at yard sales and thrift stores, and she loved showering these gifts to her family. She had a knack for repurposing her finds and making them beautiful.  She also loved gardening, planting flowers, and fishing. She was a devout Christian who loved to praise and worship God. She attended the former Harvest Temple for many years of her life, attended North Griffin Church with her husband Tom for most of her senior life, and more recently attended Abiding Love Community Church.

She was a devoted grandmother and great-grandmother who loved deeply. She was affectionately known as “Granny” and did not hesitate to help raise the grandbabies that needed her. One of her favorite things to do was just sit out on her swing enjoying the sunshine and often her grandchildren. She was a strong woman who loved and cared very much for her husband as he coped with Alzheimer's during her last days. She was a treasure and a wonderful friend to all.

Peggy was predeceased by her parents Dorsey Bass and Corine Pelt, daughter Paula Bostwick, sister Connie Gaddy, brother Jimmy Bass, grandson Terry Brown and great-granddaughter Justice Delgado. She is survived by her husband, Tom Bostwick; daughters Brenda and Avery Hillard, Deborah and Randall Clark, Linda and Skip Floyd, and Tommie Bostwick;  granddaughters, Regina and Glen Fuentes, Christy Bowen, Sandi Bostwick, Larissa and Alec Moran, Ashley Stewart, and Shylah Murphy; grandsons, Randy McDaniel, Thomas Johnson, Matthew Floyd and Brandon Bostwick; great-grandchildren, Michael Starling, Hannah Kington, Jordan Starling, Haley and Wayne Fowler, Christopher McDaniel, Janessa Starling, Trent Yancey, Jayshaun Fuentes, Gavin Bowen, Brody Johnson, Jalen Fuentes, Angel Yancey, Natlie McDaniel, Jaliayh Fuentes, Karlie Matthews, Addyson Moran, Gracelyn Dewitt, and Hayden Dewitt; great-great grandson, Waylon Fowler.
