I think Peggy Jones is an important person in our community because she works at Carpinteria Community Church, she helped raise money to buy the bluffs, she volunteers for seal watch and writes a column in the newspaper. She teaches kids to love God and respect and love one another. She provides a safe place for kids to go after school. Her title is Director of Childrenís Ministry.
Peggyís full name is Peggy Ann Jones. She was named after her mother and grandmother. Her mother and grandmotherís name was Margaret and the nickname for Margaret is "Peggy". She was born in Bowmens Ville, New York, a country town, named after her family. It was named after her cousins from the 1800s! She was born at home in a snow storm. Her motherís name was Grace Margaret Lang, later Love. Her dadís name is Elton Wilber Love. Her father worked in aero-space and her mother was a homemaker. Her maternal grandfather (momís side) was a master printer and helped organize unions. He was also a farmer. Peggy was the first woman to work in her family, as far as she knows. Her family has ancestry in France, Germany and Scotland.
Peggy has lived in New York, New Mexico and Arizona. The house she remembers most was in New York. She describes it as big, old, two-story house on three acres of land. Woods were behind it, and also meadows. There were acres of apple trees. There was also a creek to swim in. She had fun playing outside, skiing, ice skating and walking in the snow. She has studied art and literature. She married and has three adult children, six grandchildren, and one great-grandchild. She is in banking now, is the Director of Childrenís Ministry at Carpinteria Church, and also is a free-lance writer. She also paints terra cota pots and sells them. She is an environmentally conscious person. She watches out for our mother earth by recycling and doing her part for nature.
She believes in justice and kindness. She has fun now by walking, taking care of her garden and painting pictures. She once swam with wild dolphins off the coast of Carpinteria! Thats the coolest thing she ever did!
