Mrs. Peachie was a life long member of the Wallace First Baptist Church and participated in church activities there for a long period of time. She dearly loved her Lord and her church, along with all the dear friends she made while attending church there. As a local seamstress in the town of Wallace, many life-long friends were made and cherished by Mrs. Peachie. A great deal of time was spent in her yard gardening her many flowers which were very significant to her. The inside of her house overflowed with the many plants she nurture. No person has ever existed who was just like her and many lives have been touched by Mrs. Peachie who spent almost one hundred years on earth.
