Faye Douglas Peeler passed away at her home in Pleasanton on Monday, September 2, 2019. Although she was able to recover from several serious health issues in the past few years, she succumbed to bone cancer.
Faye Doris Douglas was born in Bynum in 1926 to parents, Clarence Vernon Douglas and Bertha Lea Harrell Douglas. She married Thomas Edward Peeler in Corpus Christi on June 11, 1948. Tom and Faye continued to reside in Corpus Christi, where their two children were born; Patricia Gayle and Thomas Neal. They moved to Pleasanton in 1963, where they remained until their death. After Tom’s passing in 2008, Faye continued to live independently at the family home.
She is preceded in death by her parents, Clarence and Bertha Douglas, and her siblings: Marvin Clifton Douglas, Joel Douglas, Royce Vernon Douglas, Allen Dee Douglas, Duel Ray Douglas, and Verla Mae Douglas Stone; her husband Tom Peeler and her grandson, Jeffrey Lance Darby.
She is survived by her daughter, Gayle Walters, and her children, Kellie Ann Thompson (and husband Chris Thompson) and Clayton Wesley Walters; and her son, Neal Peeler and his children, Xib Peeler and Andrea Dawn Peeler.
Her life was enriched by her great-grandchildren, Zachary, Mason and Brady Moczygemba (mother, Kellie Thompson) and Rebecca and Tyler Thompson (father, Chris Thompson) of La Vernia; and Adler and Brayden Peeler (father, Xib Peeler) of Austin.
Faye was a loving mother, doting grandmother, and avid Aggie fan. Always active in civic affairs, she worked tirelessly to bring Pleasanton its first public library, for which she was awarded Pleasanton’s Woman of the Year.
In lieu of flowers, the family asks that you make a donation in her honor to a charity of your choice. The family will hold a private memorial service at Tom and Faye’s beloved ranch near Tilden.
Faye’s family invites you to join them at an informal reception to celebrate a life well lived Friday, September 20 at the Pleasanton Country Club from 4-6 p.m.
