Obituary

Margaret Dale “Peggy” Bowers Buffaloe, 78, went to be with her Lord and Savior on Thursday, August 4, 2022. She was born September 27, 1943 in Elkins, WV to the late James Hubert Bowers and Margaret Reitz Bowers. Peggy graduated in 1961 from Shelby High School. She married the love of her life in 1965, the late Roy Gene “Pete” Buffaloe. She received a RN from Wilson School of Nursing and a BS degree in nursing from St. Joseph’s College. After graduation, she went to work immediately and became very involved in patient care at WakeMed and worked in labor and delivery for 19 years. She became the director of Blue Ridge Same Day Surgery when it opened. She retired with 28 years of dedicated service to the labor and delivery department where she became very close to the Wilkerson family. Peggy knew no strangers, your health was her upmost concern. In her spare time she was an EMT serving on the Wendell Rescue Squad. After retirement, she became very devoted to her family and her church, spending time with her grandchildren at the beach and having lunch with her friends. Her family, friends and close co-workers will miss her health advice and concern about you and your family.
