Peggy Sue Dossey Garner

Peggy Garner was born May 11, 1930 in Bonham, Texas to Howard Holland Dossey and Euna Flossye Gatlin Dossey. The family moved to McCamey so that Peggy’s father could work in the oilfield. She graduated from McCamey High School and married her hero, Jack Marvin Garner from Rankin on February 17, 1947. The couple had three children John Howard (Rusty), Katie Elissa, and Susijac.

Peggy was very ambitious and earned many honors. She started out working as the Executive Director of the Chamber of Commerce. Next Peggy served as the Center Director for the Upton-Reagan Community Center and Upton County Day Care Center.

She then decided to run for County Judge of Upton County. She won the election and stayed in office for 16 years. During that time, she won many awards such as Man of the Year in Texas Agriculture in 1985, Region 6; Official of the Year, West Texas County Judges for 1982, and the First Lady of McCamey in 1975. She won many other awards and appointments.

Peggy loved the Methodist Church, the Permian Basin Historical Society, and the Permian Basin Regional Planning Commission. She was very active in numerous clubs and organizations.
In 1990, Peggy received her greatest honor. She was appointed to the Texas Water Commission by Governor Ann Richards. Peggy served on the Texas Water Commission in Austin, Texas until August 31, 1993.
Peggy had some other great qualities. She was a true leader. She was very generous and kind to everyone. Peggy did many things for the people in Upton County, and she will be remembered.

Peggy and her husband Jack enjoyed traveling and took many trips abroad. They, also, loved going to Ruidoso to the horse races. Most of all, Peggy and Jack loved to be around their grandchildren: Rowdy Bolen, Clay Garner, Chancy Bolen Allen, Kesha Garner Smith, Craig Hopper, Chase Settle, Cherokee Bolen Strube, Quisto Settle, and Golden Bolen.
