In memory of
Margaret Lynn Liddle
LIDDLE, Peggy Margaret Lynn Liddle Peggy of Dallas was born in Abilene, TX, on December 8, 1953, and passed away on March 10, 2020, after briefly battling lung cancer. Her life was filled with professional successes, long and meaningful friendships, and a deep love for her partner, Doug Boettcher. Peggy graduated from Abilene Cooper High School and was a Plan II graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, where she served with distinction as chair of the Texas Union Board of Directors. She was honored for her outstanding accomplishments as a campus Goodfellow and was a member of Omicron Delta Kappa national leadership society and UT's Friar Society. Peggy was also a founding member of The Eyes of Texas. At UT, Peggy met many kindred spirits who remained her close friends for life. Peggy established a successful career in retail, working over the years as a buyer, manager, vice president, and regional sales manager; Joske's, Neiman-Marcus, the Horchow Collection, Chefs Catalog, Tuesday Morning, and Edgecraft all benefitted from Peggy's expertise. Her travels for business and pleasure took her to such places as Chile, China, Bali, and many locations in Europe. She also enjoyed relaxing get-aways with friends in Akumal, Mexico and Nantucket. A faithful member of First United Methodist Church for 34 years, Peggy chaired and served on the finance committee, stewardship committee, and church council and participated in numerous studies and small groups. She was an active member of the Chancel Choir for many years. Above all, Peggy was devoted to her family and many friends and is very much missed by all who were touched by her kindness, generosity, wisdom, sense of humor, and, of course, exceptional cooking and hospitality. She was cherished "Aunt Peggy" to a whole generation of now-grown kids who adored her. She was present for their many plays, musicals, concerts, graduations, and other life events and accomplishments. She was preceded in death by her parents, John and Lynn Liddle, and sister Suzi Corley. Her survivors include brother Lee and sister Joan Maner; nieces and nephews John, Diana, Catherine, Kelley, Kimberly, Kristen, Christopher, Megan, and Mason; and her beloved partner, Doug, and his sons Collin and Chandler Boettcher. A memorial service will be held at a date to be determined at First United Methodist Church. In lieu of flowers, donations in Peggy's memory may be made to FUMC Dallas; the Texas Union; UT's Plan II study abroad program; the UT Friar Society alumni fund; or the charity of your choice.
