Peggy Joseph

December 7, 1936 — March 4, 2021

Peggy Joseph, 84, of Kansas City, Missouri, passed away March 4, 2021.

Peggy was born to James Bryan Hudson and Margaret Ruth Lokey in New Bern, NC.  Peggy was a majorette and graduated from New Bern High School.  She also attended East Carolina University.

She married her high school sweetheart, Taft Michial Joseph Jr. on July 19, 1956.  Taft was a Lt Colonel in the US Army and Peggy served as a proud Officer’s wife for 32 years. They lived in many locations throughout the United States and abroad and were blessed with three children.  Together, later in life, they owned a real estate company for over 20 years in Lawton, Oklahoma. Taft was her Broker/GM and made sure her face was on most every billboard in town making Peggy a household name for many years. She earned many multi-million-dollar sales awards during her career. After retirement in 2006 she moved to Overland Park, KS to be with their widowed daughter and two grandchildren. Her last years were spent in Kansas City, MO.

She enjoyed hospitality, entertaining, antiques and reading. She especially loved to read about the royal families of England and about President Kennedy and his family. She was a woman of great faith. She often wrote down prayers which she placed in a God box and many of them were answered. She loved her husband and family with all her heart. Peggy had a great sense of humor and was a fun, happy person whose smile was contagious. To know her was to love her. She was like a ray of sunshine in the lives of many.

Peggy was preceded in death by her parents, her siblings; Billie Hudson, Shirley Jersild, Patsy Anderson, and Freeman Hudson.

Peggy is survived by her husband, Taft, sister, Betty Hall (Alan) of Tennessee, daughters; Joni Williams of Overland Park, KS, Lynne Joseph (Brad) of Tampa, FL, and son, Michial Joseph of Sedona, AZ.  Granddaughters; Rachel Faye Khoury (Patrick) and Elizabeth Williams, Overland Park, KS and 6 great grandchildren.
