Obituary for Helen Margaret "Peggy" Farquhar (Stevens)

Helen Margaret "Peggy"  Farquhar (Stevens)
HELEN MARGARET “Peggy” STEVENS FARQUHAR was born May 7, 1929, in
Arlington, Massachusetts and passed away on October 20, 2018, in Irving, Texas. “Nana,” as she was known to all, loved life. She was the sun that warmed her entire family. She joined the US Navy, which is where she met Robert Farquhar. Their marriage produced 5 children and took them all over the world to his many postings before finally settling in Texas. She worked as a bookkeeper for various companies and retired from Baylor University after a twenty-year career. She loved to travel the world with her family. She worked hard to help those less fortunate than she and was passionate about literacy and teaching people to read. Nana was a devout Catholic who lived her faith each day serving as a wonderful example to her family and friends. Despite living in Texas for decades, she never lost her Boston accent.
She is preceded in death by her father, George Stevens, her mother, Beatrice Stevens, her husband, Robert Vociel Farquhar, her son, Robert Michael Farquhar, her brother, George Stevens, her sister, Elizabeth Stevens, and by one grandson William Gregory Farquhar. She is survived by her children Nancy Thomas (Jim), Frank Farquhar (Debbie), Cindi Farquhar, Jennifer Baxley, by her daughter-in-law Carol Farquhar, by her nine grandchildren, Robert, Kathy, Shane, Stephanie, Andy, Shea, Stephen, Caleb and Austin, and by her seven great-grandchildren, Andrew, Taylor, Aaron, Cole, Tyler, Quentin and Jacob.
A service will be held at the Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery, 2000 Mountain Creek Parkway, Dallas, Texas, on Monday, October 29, 2018, at 11:15a.m.
In lieu of flowers, those wishing to honor Nana may make a donation to Avanté Rehabilitation Center’s resident entertainment fund, 225 N. Sowers Road, Irving, Texas 75061 or to a literacy organization of their choosing.
