Peggy Jean Watson Babb

Peggy, known as Mimi to her family, embraced Columbia from the early 1960s and was married to Harold Babb for 53 years. She was a dedicated mother and volunteer for many organizations in leadership roles. A committed member of First Baptist Church, she was always willing to be involved in her church and community. Peggy worked as a volunteer in Baptist Hospital Auxiliary and loved to garden. She enjoyed being an active member of Pine Garden Club. She earned her certification as a flower judge which allowed her to be active with the State Fair and other competitions. Through thick and thin, Peggy was a true USC Gamecock sports fan.
