Peggy Joyce Pollard

July 5, 1933 — March 1, 2024

Peggy Joyce (Wilson) Pollard, age 90, passed away peacefully on March 1, 2024, at her home in Oklahoma City.  She was born July 5, 1933 in Davidson, Oklahoma to "Red" and Elma McCauley.  Peggy's father passed away when she was 2 years of age.  Her mother remarried when she was 6 years old and she was adopted and raised by her loving stepfather, Jim Wilson.  She graduated from Frederick High School in 1951.  Shortly after graduation she married her high school sweetheart, Billy Ray Pollard and began a wonderful, fun-filled 66 year marriage.


pulling a small travel trailer, she accompanied Billy on road construction for nine years, before they moved to Oklahoma City.  Her career then included Montgonery Wards finance department, being a classified key-punch operator in the Tinker Field flight tower, FFA supervisor and finally earning her cosmetology license.


In 1969, the family moved to Perry, where Billy became "Borden Bill" with the Borden's Milk Company Distributorship, and she opened Peggy's Beauty Boutique and Peggy's Nearly New Store.  The shared a love for lake life, league bowling, chaperoning kids' activities/parties and pets.  In 1990 they relocated to OKC and managed Garden Gate Condominiums, and then for the next 20 years they managed U-Store storage units until retiring at 82 years of age.


Anyone that spent time with Peggy knew her love for hosting, cooking and gathering of family and friends.  Peggy's greatest joy came from her role as a loving mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother.  She cherished every moment showering them with unconditional love, wisdom, and affection.  With her zest for life, love, kindness, strong-will, and resilience, her memory will continue to inspire and guide others.  Peggy's greatest legacy she left was her love of family.
