Obituary

Obituary for Anne Margaret McGaughy (Tidwell)

(Peggy) Anne Margaret Tidwell McGaughy, was born on July, 28, 1939 in New Orleans, Louisiana to Calvin McMahon Tidwell and Annie-Felder Bishop Tidwell. She was the eldest of three children. As a child she grew up in various places, settling in Houston where she attended Lamar High School.

Peggy attended Texas Women’s University where she studied Interior Design. She was a talented artist and carried this talent throughout her life. One of her favorite mediums was porcelain dolls; painting, making and styling the wigs, sewing the outfits and making shoes and accessories. Over 24 years she created over 65 dolls earning 40 ribbons and awards at various competitions. She was just one special doll shy of earning her Doll Artesian Guild Triple Crown of Doll Making title. She also joined the Linus Project, a volunteer group which makes quilts, teddy bears and IV cover sleeves for children in hospitals.

While she was attending TWU, she met Richard (Dick) at a college dance in October, 1958. They dated for several years, where she became a prominent face in several Aggieland yearbooks of which Dick was the editor. They married on April 6, 1962 in Houston, Texas. During their travels due to Dick’s time in the Army, they welcomed three daughters; Anne Margaret, Janis Adele and Penny Michelle. After Dick transferred from active duty to reserve, they made their final move to Houston, Texas in December 1975. She was very supported of her daughter’s activities with Girl Scouts as their leader, church youth group and she attended their various school activities. She was very proud of her girls’ adult accomplishments.

Peggy was the proud grandmother of Kevin Paramore, Jess Butcher, Jr. and Amanda Paramore. She would love to brag about them to anyone who would listen. It was impossible to not see the glee and excitement in her eyes as she would introduce them to new people as these are MY grandchildren. She was heavily involved in their lives from the time they were born until now. She made time in her day to take all three of them to Rainbow School and Karate classes. God bless her soul; we are lucky she was not committed. She would attend school activities like band and football. She was supportive and helped them when needed, cheering them along the way. She was also proud of Amanda’s Girl Scout Gold Award, Kevin’s Eagle Scout award and the Karate achievements of all three grandchildren.

For 15 years Peggy worked at Sears in their catalog, customer service and cashier departments. While at Sears she pushed Girl Scout cookie sales on her unsuspecting co-workers.
She was a devout Christian woman and raised her children with a firm belief in God and the Bible. She continued those beliefs through teaching cradle roll, bible school classes, VBS, Eldridge Road’s mother’s day out program which became Rainbow School and working with the youth group. She was the driving force to start the cradle roll Sunday morning Bible classes for children under two years of age in Dover, NJ and Eldridge Road. She taught them by songs with hand motions and pictures. She also participated in Mission trips for 20 years to Jamaica, Mexico, Belize and Antigua.

Peggy loved to travel and always came back with rolls of film. She spent her 50th anniversary with Dick on a cruise to Alaska and came back with stories of their adventures, sights they saw and tons of photos. She had the perfect timing of somehow always finding you with food in your mouth and snapping the photo.
Peggy passed peacefully from this world on February 19, 2020 at the age of 80 years old. She is preceded in death by her parents and her brother, Calvin McMahon (Mac) Tidwell, Jr.
She leaves behind the love of her life of nearly 58 years, Dick McGaughy; three daughters, Anne Paramore and husband, Kevin, Adele Butcher and Penny McGaughy; three grandchildren, Kevin Paramore, Jess Butcher, Jr. and Amanda Paramore; sister, Janis Elizabeth Tidwell Galeucia and numerous nieces, nephews and many friends.

Memorial Service will be 10:00 am on Saturday, February 29, 2020 at Mission Bend Church of Christ, 9917 Clodine Road, Richmond, TX 77407.

In lieu of flowers, the family invites you to make donations in her name to the American Lung Association or American Liver Foundation.
