Jan. 23, 1934 – Dec. 10, 2014
Peggy Jo passed away peacefully in her home in Reno, Nevada on Wednesday December 10, 2014 surrounded by her family. Margaret Josephine was born January 23, 1934 in Ely, Nevada to Harold and Mary Jackson. Following high school, she graduated from the University of Nevada Reno with a degree in elementary education. After marrying Tom Davis, the couple moved to Carson City where she was a school teacher and raised her children. Later, she remarried and relocated to Reno. Peggy was active in P.E.O., Delta Delta Delta Sorority as an alumnus, and was an avid Wolf Pack fan—being a long time season ticket holder to women’s volleyball, football and basketball games for many years. Peggy enjoyed travelling with her husband, Arland Conner, walking with her sisters, volunteering, and most of all hanging out with her grandchildren. She will be missed tremendously. She is survived by husband, Arland Conner, her three children, Jeri Davis Matthews (Fred), Jess Davis, Katie Davis Larkin (Keith). Also by her grandchildren KatiJo Matthews, Conner and Adam Larkin and her sisters, Barbara Jackson Laveaga (Vincent) and Mary Carol Jackson Lewis (Bob). A Celebration of Peggy’s Life will be held at Silver Oak Country Club in Carson City on December 18, 2014 from 2:00-4:00pm. In lieu of flowers, an account has been set up at Nevada State Bank (1001 W. Moana Lane Reno, NV 89509) in the name of the Jackson Fund as a contribution to White Pine High School in Ely Nevada.
