August 21, 1937 - January 20, 2019
Peggy Chesson Rodenhizer Moore, 81, of 3441 Pleasant Gap Dr., Dry Fork, VA, went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, January 20, 2019 at her residence after being in declining health for several months. Peggy was born in Danville, VA on August 21, 1937 daughter of the late James Chesson and the late Elizabeth Koger Chesson Amos. She spent all of her life in the Danville area where she retired from the Hylton Hall offices of Dan River Mills. She was a member of Faith Memorial Baptist Church. On May 9, 1959, Peggy married Allen Rodenhizer who died on August 16, 1997. In addition to her parents and husband, her stepfather, Noel Amos, predeceased her. Peggy was known for her kind and giving nature. After her health began to fail, her daughter wanted to offer the same love and support that her mother had given over the years. Deane and her husband Jerry welcomed Peggy into their home in November 2018. She loved her new home and she and Suzy quickly settled into their new surroundings. The compassion and love for her mother goes beyond compare.
