Peggy Denise Jeffcoat Bridges

September 28, 1963 – March 10, 2014

Peggy Denise Jeffcoat Bridges, “Dee”, age 50, passed away peacefully at her home in Mission Viejo, California surrounded by family and friends on March 10, 2014, after her valiant fight with breast cancer. Her love for her husband and children, unwavering faith in God, and the love and prayers of family, friends, and many supporters carried her through a three and a half year battle.

Dee was born to Charlene Engram and Bruce Jeffcoat in Montgomery, Alabama on September 28, 1963. They lived in many areas during her childhood from Hawaii to Alabama. She graduated from Northview High School in Dothan, Alabama in 1981 and graduated from the University of Alabama, where she was a member of Alpha Gamma Delta sorority.

Dee is survived by her devoted husband of 21 years, Barry Wade Bridges; her loving sons, Benjamin Wade Bridges and Thomas Edward Bridges; her precious daughters, Ansley Engram Bridges and Camella Grace Bridges; and her family; Thad Berger, Terry Lay, Tony Lay, Lynn and Jerry Engram, Jeremy Engram, Myra and Tommy Costner, Betty and Tom Bridges, Pam and Larry Coons, Alison and Chuck Gault; and the many nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles, cousins and friends whom she has known around the world.

Dee is preceded in death by her beloved mother, Charlene Engram Berger; father, Bruce Jeffcoat; step father, Roger Berger; grandmother, Hilda Engram; grandfather, Paul Engram; grandmother, Raleigh Jeffcoat; and grandfather, John Jeffcoat.

    Your presence made life easier for everyone around you. You had a unique gift to recognize and appreciate the beauty in others and to make them feel loved and lifted by your presence. Your kind heart and brilliant smile made everyone feel like family. Your generous heart filled your home with love, fun, family and friends, including an attitude that there was always room for one more.

    You are so loved and will be missed so much!
    Love Joanne
