Peggy Joiner Spaulding, age 73, of Hardeeville, SC and formerly of North Augusta, SC went home to be with the Lord on Tuesday, December 4, 2018.
Mrs. Spaulding was born on January 5, 1945 in Augusta, GA, the daughter of the late William W. and Norma S. Joiner. She was a graduate of Butler High School and attended Business School in Augusta. Peggy grew up in Augusta and while working at the Fort Gordon post office, met her future husband Mike. Peggy and Mike were blessed with three sons, and she enjoyed being a wife and mother, and taking care of her family. For several years, she could be seen driving the yellow Curtis Baptist School van, as well as her tenure as a successful real estate broker for Sherman & Hemstreet Realty Company. She enjoyed bowling, and after being introduced to ice hockey by her husband, became a huge fan of the Augusta Lynx Hockey Team. After Mike’s sudden death, her love of hockey diminished, but with encouragement of her friends, she enjoyed attending Augusta Green Jacket baseball games. In addition to gardening in her yard, she always made sure that all of her “critters” were fed, especially deer and squirrels. She was especially fond of traveling, playing Candy Crush, watching C-Span and listening to Rush Limbaugh. Her greatest joy was spending time with her grandchildren, great grandchildren, and her beloved cat. She was a member of Maye River Baptist Church, Bluffton, SC and Sweetwater Baptist Church, North Augusta, SC.
Mrs. Spaulding was preceded in death by her husband, E.G. “Mike” Spaulding, III. She is survived by her sister, Gloria J. Fossett of Wilmington, NC; children, Richard (Danielle) L. Spaulding of North Augusta, SC, E. Gerry (Judy) Spaulding, IV of Hardeeville, SC, and Brian K.
