Peggy Ann Criser

Our beloved sister, Peggy Ann Criser, formerly of Destin, slipped the bounds of this earth and stepped into the arms of her savior, Jesus, on April 11, 2013, at her home in Niceville, Fla.

Peggy was a resident of Niceville for many years and loved living in that community surrounded by her beautiful flowers at her home on Parkwood Circle.

She is preceded in death by parents, Max and Mary Alice Criser; sister, Valerie Criser; and brother, Paul Criser.

Peggy is survived by brother, Richard Criser, wife, Margie, of Charleston, W.V.; sister, Barbara Centofonti, Keyser, W.V.; brother, Max Criser, wife, Virginia, of Aiken, S.C.; sister, Linda Kesecker, husband, Brian, New Creek, W.V.; Jane Reckner, Hollsopple, Pa.; brother, Ste-ven, wife, Virginia, also residents of Keyser; sister, Faye Parker, husband, Allen, Mannington, W.V.; sister, Nancy Kohler, Virginia Beach, Va.; and brother, Edward Criser, wife, Yong, of Kernersville, N.C. She is also survived by 22 nieces and nephews; wonderful and very close friends, Jim Bass and Dwane Martin; and beloved and faithful friend, Michael Clary.

A private family service will be held July 6 in her hometown and birthplace, Keyser, W.V. Peggy's final wishes were to be cremated and her ashes scattered in the ocean that she loved so dearly. Her wish will be granted.

Peggy was a bright light where ever she went and was extremely generous to family, friends and all who knew her. The world is a dimmer place without her presence.
