"Peggy Joyce Buffa, 47, passed away on Thursday, May 24, 2018. She held many titles in her lifetime – caring daughter, faithful follower of Christ, and loyal friend. Above all these, however, she was most proud to be a mother to her two beautiful daughters. She took great joy in each of their cheerleading competitions, supported them in every endeavor and became known by many as the best team mom.
Born on August 4, 1970 in Houston to Richard and Kathy Brown, Peggy graduated from Waltrip High School in 1988. She later attended the University of Houston and displayed her Cougar pride as a member of the school’s Color Guard. She maintained her love of football throughout her life, and often watched her favorite football teams, the University of Houston and Texas A&M University.
Peggy will be greatly missed by her daughters, Kelly Ann and Kaitlyn Nicole Buffa; parents Richard and Kathy Brown; brother Doug Brown and his wife, Michelene; sister Melissa Rowell; as well as several nieces, nephews and extended family members.
Friends are invited to a visitation with the family at 9:30 a.m. on Friday, June 1, followed by a service at 11 a.m. in the Memorial Church of Christ chapel, 900 Echo Lane, Houston, Texas 77024. After the celebration of Peggy’s life, a burial will be held at Woodlawn Cemetery at 1101 Antoine, Houston, Texas 77055. Those in attendance are encouraged to wear navy and maroon in honor of Peggy’s favorite colors.
