Friends and family of Peggy Brown Buffa share memories and messages of love in the wake of her passing on May 24, 2018. Read on for tributes and service information.
A Beloved Mother & Friend
She held many titles in her lifetime – caring daughter, faithful follower of Christ, and loyal friend. She took great joy in each of their cheerleading competitions, supported them in every endeavor and became known by many as the best team mom.
Above all, Peggy was most proud to be a mother to her two beautiful daughters, Kelly and Kaitlyn. Kelly is a teacher at West Memorial Junior High in Katy ISD and Kaitlyn graduated this past weekend from Cinco Ranch High School.
Peggy was diagnosed with metastatic breast cancer in both lungs in October 2017 but anyone who knew Peggy knew that this diagnosis didn’t stop her fight. She fought hard through several forms of chemotherapy before passing away on Thursday, May 24.
Kate Ober wrote “Peggy Brown Buffa the most beautiful and loving soul went to heaven yesterday… She was a mom to me when my mom could not be, she encouraged me when i needed it the most, she loved on me always, she was truly a remarkable woman! Thanks to Kaitlyn Buffa being on my team so many years at Prodigy, Peggy was the team mom… and let me tell y’all she was THE BEST cheer mom anyone could ask for! She had the best corny mom jokes, she encouraged the team like no one else, she took care of us when we got hurt, she always helped the nerves go away back stage at competitions, she TRULY believed in each and every one of us!!
