Peggy Mathena Dehart

d. April 20, 2022

Peggy Mathena Dehart (79) of Fairlawn, left the Earth on April 20, 2022 to be an angel with her Savior Jesus Christ. It was her wish to go to the beach one more time and she did. She put her feet in the sand and entered the gates shortly after brushing the sand off her feet as the Lord ushered her into heaven!
At the time of her passing she was surrounded by her loving family, husband of 64 years, Kyle W. Dehart; daughters, Susanne Dehart (Danny), Deborah Phillips (Sam); sons, Kevin Dehart (Betty), Keith Dehart (Amy); grandchildren, Emily Jessee, Jordan Perfator, Keaton Dehart, Bekah Dehart; and great-grandchildren, Alec Jessee and Adalynn Jessee.
Born September 27, 1942, she was preceded in death by her parents, Caudill Mathena and Hester Vernon Mathena; as well as her brother, James Mathena.
Along with her husband and children, she is survived by sister, Susan Hiles; brother, Jerry W. Mathena (Pam); step-grandchildren, Wesley Orr and Jordan Orr and their children, Kaylee and Ayden; along with many nieces, nephews, and cousins.
While raising her family she obtained a degree in Computer Machine Operations from NRCC. She worked at Radford University, but went on to retire from Virginia Tech from the Computer Operations group. After retiring, she volunteered at Radford Hospital to help the less fortunate. She then found her true passion for travel and adventure by becoming a tour guide with Sunshine Tours, visiting 48 states including Hawaii and Alaska.
