Peggy Hope Bennett was born on July 10, 1947 in St. Louis, Missouri. Peggy was the fourth of six children born to the union of John Herbert Bennett, Sr. and Rebecca Douglas-Bennett. Her father, mother and three siblings preceded her in death.
Peggy was educated in the St. Louis Public School System where she attended Arlington Elementary and Laclede Elementary. She then attended O’Fallon Technical High School and furthered her education at East St. Louis Community, receiving an Associates’ Degree in Business Administration and Washington University where she received a Bachelor’s Degree Science. Peggy was honored by the St. Louis Chapter of America’s Junior Colleges and received accolades in 1978-79 from the “Who’s Who” in America was honored in the St. Louis Argus newspaper.
Peggy entered in the work industry while still in high school and she worked at Spielberg’s Handbags Store, United States Census Bureau, Human Development Corporation (HDC), and she finally found her dream job at Chrysler where she worked until retirement.
Peggy Hope Bennett met Mr. Carl Tyler in 1965 and on September 8, 1967, they became official. She was now Mrs. Peggy Hope Tyler. To this union one child was born on July 9, 1969, Carl Cortez Tyler. Her one and only.
Peggy enjoyed cooking, eating and sharing good food. She loved to laugh, talk, and watch television (Old School Shows). However, her favorite pastime was writing poems, documents and encouraging readings. She always encouraged others to follow up with their dreams. She had wisdom and knowledge that gave others Hope. Peggy loved to call and pray for others as well as testify about the goodness of Jesus.
Peggy joined Centennial Holyland M.B. Church (CHMBC) in April, 2004 under the leadership of the late Elder Chat Jefferson where she served on the Missionary Ministry and the Mother’s Ministry. Everyone considered Mother Peggy as the “CHMBC Hospitality Queen” because she loved her church family and the visitors as well. She passed out Goody Bags every Sunday after service. She worked diligently until her heavenly transition.
Mother Peggy was strong, wise, caring, hopeful, sweet, kind, loving, and giving with an amazing sense of humor. Not only was she a fighter but she was a nurturer. In addition to her one and only (Carl), Mother Peggy raised a village where she was able to touch and help so many people. She wore many hats and had several titles: Granny Hope, Aunt Hope, Sweet Peggy, Sunshine, Queen 42, and Dear Friend.
On Tuesday, July 18th at approximately 3:58 pm, Mother Peggy Hope Tyler received her wings and transitioned from Earth to Glory at the St. Clare Hospital in Fenton, MO.
