Peggy Marie Yount

April 17, 1949 ~ February 15, 2020 (age 70)


Peggy Marie Yount, 70, of Crane Hill, passed away on Saturday, February 15, 2020. She was born April 17, 1949, in Guntersville, to Henry Joseph Cowen and Generbell Lee Cannady.

Peggy was a homemaker. She had a love for birds and flowers, with a special fondness for hummingbirds. Peggy enjoyed cooking, camping with her family, thrift store shopping, and finding a good bargain. She was selfless and shared her finds with those she loved. Her belief was that if you left her home hungry, it was your own fault. Peggy was always on the go. Her grocery store trips often included five or six different stores, and a trip to Wal-Mart could become a day long adventure. Peggy was the rock of her family. She was always making sure there was peace among those she loved, but when she was mad – she was mad! Peggy loved her family. Words cannot describe the intensity of her love for her husband, children, grandchildren, and great-grandson. Her passing leaves her family heartbroken. She will be greatly missed.

Peggy is preceded in death by her parents, Henry Joseph Cowen and Gennerbell Lee Cannady.

Survivors include her husband of almost twenty one years, Mike Yount; daughters, Tina Turney (John), Theresa Sisk; sisters, Betty King, Sherrie McKissick; grandchildren, Ryan Thomas, Megan Sisk, Landon Sisk; great-grandson Taylin Napier; great-granddaughter on the way, Kaylin Napier.

Burial will follow in Pine Grove Cemetery. Ryan Thomas, Landon Sisk, Aaron Lynn, John Richie, Chris Thomas, and Ryan Schuman will serve as pallbearers.
