July 5, 1925 — March 21, 2018

Margaret (Peggy) Marsh Liddell, 92, of Eureka, IL passed away on Wed. March 21, 2018 in Normal, IL.

Peggy was committed to her Lord, children, granddaughter, great-grandchildren and many friends. Though she moved to Illinois to be near her family, she always spoke fondly of the people 'back home' in Shreveport. Her 92 years were full of love, laughter and joy.
