Peggy Mathena Dehart (79) of Fairlawn, left the Earth on April 20, 2022 to be an angel with her Savior Jesus Christ. It was her wish to go to the beach one more time and she did. She put her feet in the sand and entered the gates shortly after brushing the sand off her feet as the Lord ushered her into heaven!

At the time of her passing, she was surrounded by her loving family: husband of 64 years Kyle W. Dehart, Daughters: Suzanne Dehart (Danny), Deborah Phillips (Sam), Sons: Kevin Dehart (Betty), Keith Dehart (Amy), Grandchildren: Emily Jessee, Jordan Perfator, Keaton Dehart, Bekah Dehart, Great grandchildren: Alec Jessee and Adalynn Jessee.

Born September 27, 1942, she is preceded in death by parents Caudill Mathena and Hester Vernon Mathena, as well as her Brother James Mathena.

Along with her husband and children she is survived by Sister Susan Hiles and Brother Jerry W Mathena (Pam), Step-grandchildren Wesley Orr and Jordan Orr and their children Kaylee and Ayden, along with many nieces, nephews and cousins.

While raising her family she obtained a degree in Computer Machine Operations from NRCC. She worked at Radford University, but went on to retire from Virginia Tech from the Computer Operations group. After retiring, she volunteered at Radford Hospital to help the less fortunate. She then found her true passion for travel and adventure by becoming a tour guide with Sunshine Tours, visiting 48 states including Hawaii and Alaska.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Page’s Meeting house in Fairlawn Virginia on September 3rd, 2022 from 12-3 pm. All are welcome to celebrate the full life of this amazing woman. This event is to celebrate her life, so bring stories of how she may have changed your life!
