Peggy Chewning

March 10, 1942 — November 23, 2023


Peggy Mitchell Chewning of Campbellsville, daughter of the late Robert Selby Mitchell and Catherine White Mitchell, was born March 10, 1942 in Taylor County, Kentucky.  She died at 8:24 A.M., Thursday, November 23, 2023 in Campbellsville.   Age:  81

She professed faith in Christ and was a member of Palestine Baptist Church.

Peggy retired from Fruit of the Loom to care for her grandchildren.

She united in marriage to Bobby Chewning October 19, 1973 and he preceded her in death June 17, 2023.   

Peggy lived a very blessed and fulfilling life. In her younger years she was adventurous and loved to be outdoors. From the beach, to camping and boating, to vacations with friends, she was always ready for the next experience. As we all know, she never met a stranger and everyone knew when she was in a room. Whether it was a 5 minute conversation or her pulling a prank she always had something to say. She never left anyone in a room to feel ignored or unwanted. 

Peggy was the matriarch of her family and took great pride in her role. She would say without a shadow of a doubt that her greatest accomplishment in life was being a wife, mom, and "granny." Her passions were church, cooking, shopping, cleaning, home interior, going out for lunch, UK basketball, Nascar, and visiting with family and friends. 

Peggy was truly an amazing woman who's impact will be forever felt by her family. She was a selfless woman who's passing left a void in the hearts of her loved ones. Her ability to provide, protect, support, encourage, show compassion, and love will be forever ingrained in everyone she knew. 

Peggy is survived by one son and two daughters: Melissa Gordon, Tanya Franklin and husband, Scott, and Terry Chewning and wife, Kathy all of Campbellsville; six grandchildren: Tiffany Tedder and husband, Austin of Campbellsville, Trey Gordon of Nashville, Tennessee, Haley Goodwin and husband, Cody and Tyler Franklin of Bowling Green Kentucky, Jacob Chewning and wife, Jess and Jordan Chewning and wife, Stephanie of Campbellsville; eight great-grandchildren: Karlie Tedder, Kaeson Tedder, Krue Tedder Bentley Chewning, Graham Chewning, Myles Chewning, Nash Chewning and Briggs Chewning; several nieces and nephews and many other relatives and friends.

Peggy was also preceded in death by two brothers and one sister: James Robert Mitchell, Joseph “Joe” Warren Mitchell, and Margaret Dowell Pepper.
