Laura Virginia Watson, also known as “Peggy”, of New Church, VA passed away peacefully surrounded by her loved ones at her residence on January 1st, 2022, at the age of 87.

 Peggy is survived by her two daughters, Deborah Birch and her husband Bobby and Lenora Dorsey and her husband Donnie, all of New Church, VA and one grandson, Joshua Birch of Assawoman, VA.

 Besides her parents, she was preceded in death by her husband, Lloyd Donald “Frog” Watson.

 Services will be held at a later date.
