Peggy DesChamps Obituary

Peggy Gleaton DesChamps, 72, of Murrells Inlet, SC went home Friday, January 26, 2024, surrounded by her family, to see her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, having valiantly fought metastatic breast cancer for over eight years.

Peggy left behind a legacy of love and cherished memories, with an impressive record of personal and professional accomplishments.

Born in 1951, in Orangeburg, SC, Peggy was the daughter of Jetter Gleaton and Walter Herman Gleaton.  Peggy was preceded in death by her father as well as her brother Walter Herman “WH” Gleaton, Jr. and sister Jerene Geiger.

Peggy departed this earthly existence in harmony with love and peace for her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ, spending time each day at the cross on the inlet thanking and praying to the Lord.  Each day she would wake up with the phrase “Another great day the Lord has made. A great day to be alive. A wonderful day to be in love with life and each other.”

Peggy is survived by her husband of 44 years and love of her life, William “Bill” DesChamps and their two wonderful children, Leah Paige Sandifer (Scotty), William “Trey” DesChamps (Sarah), five grandchildren, Courtney Sandifer, Bryan Sandifer, Caroline Sandifer, Rhett DesChamps, and Kathleen DesChamps as well as four great grandchildren, Eden, Emory, Hailyn, and Theo.   Peggy is further survived by her mother, Jetter Gleaton as well as sisters, Barbara Fanning (Simon), Lynell Fogle (Leon), Wanda White, Jackie Crim (Larry) and numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.

Peggy was an accomplished business and community leader, having run a law office in administrative and paralegal capacities for over 40 years, always taking time for her family and her Lord.
