Peggy Mitchum Camp
Peggy Mitchum Camp passed away peacefully on September 15, 2019. She was born in Lanett, Alabama on August 6, 1932. She graduated from Lanett High School with honors and worked as a bank teller through her 20's.
Peggy married James O. Camp on July 30 1961, and in 1962 they moved to Gardendale where they raised three sons: the eldest Donald, and twins Mark and Mitch. They were married almost 35 years when James passed away in 1996. After his death, Peggy lived in their home in Gardendale until 2013. Since then she has lived closer to her sons in South Alabama and Atlanta.
Peggy created a welcoming, nurturing home. Joyful and determined, she cared for her family with the love of a mother, the mind of an accountant, and the skill of a chef. Fried apple pies, homemade bread, oatmeal cookies, muscadine jelly, elaborately decorated cakes, and a variety of other treats not only were found on her kitchen table, but also found their way to her friends, her church (Gardendale-Mt. Vernon United Methodist Church), and to those who were ill or homebound.
Peggy is survived by her three sons and extended family members.
