To send flowers in memory of Peggy Owens (Oliver), please visit our Heartfelt Sympathies Store.
Known for her inner and outer beauty, people admired her style of fashion. She enjoyed exploring counties of Kentucky with close friend Mariem Bingham Harris of Texas, and the late Kate Mann, while collecting antiques. Peggy loved gardening, and would provide arrangements of literally thousands of zinnias for her boy’s large consignments at Keeneland and Fasig Tipton. She loved land, nature, gardens, cattle, horses, and the University of Kentucky. Highly thought of, she had hundreds of close friends. She would chuckle talking to Catesby Clay about when they both appeared on this earth.
Survived by two sons, Norman D. Owens, grandchildren Mackie and Lukas; and Phil T. Owens (Michelle Owens), grandchildren Will, Jack and Lily.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the University of Kentucky Children’s Hospital, P.O. Box 34184, Lexington, KY 40588 and/or First Baptist Church Van Fund, 919 Pleasant Street, Paris, KY 40361.
