Dorothy “Peggy” Lawrence Miear, 80, formerly of Myrtle Lane in Lynchburg, Va., passed away Saturday, December 28, 2019 in her residence at Runk & Pratt Liberty Ridge.

She was preceded in death by her loving husband of 60 years, Russell Miear, a sister, Betty Carey, and two brothers, Tommy Lawrence (Helen) and Roy Lawrence. Peggy was born on September 29, 1939 to the late Aubrey and Ethel Lawrence. She and Russell married in 1956 and spent many happy years building their family and traveling together. Always young at heart, Peggy and Russell delighted in sharing a “cone of crèam” with their grands.

She also leaves four grandchildren, Chris Layne, Megan Edwards (Andrew), Afton Fisher (Matthew), and Daniel Miear; along with eight great-grandchildren, Alyssa, Sadie, Mckinley, Khloe, Silas, Logan, Evie, and Hannah. In addition to being a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Peggy was a faithful servant of her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ attending and serving at Flat Creek Baptist Church for more than 70 years. For a time she served as church secretary, was a member of countless committees, taught children in Sunday School, and until her passing was a member of the K.A.P. Sunday School Class.
