Consolver_Peggy_5X7_HR_02Peggy Consolver

Born a Miracle, the third of six, Peggy grew up on a wheat farm in southwest Oklahoma. She cooked for wheat harvesters by age twelve while mother and father worked in the field. Coming from a family heritage of Appalachian storytellers, she did not hear a new joke until she was twenty-eight years old.

Peggy graduated from Grandfield High School and met her husband George in college. They graduated from Southwestern Oklahoma State University, Weatherford, OK. She taught shorthand, typing, and business law in a north Dallas high school and worked as executive secretary for a construction company in Austin, TX. Peggy delighted in her two children as a stay-at-home mom volunteering at their schools, with Girl Scouts, and in the neighborhood. She loves teaching Sunday school and women’s Bible studies where she emphasizes digging deeper into the story.
