Peggy Sue Ledesma

August 29, 1971 — June 7, 2023



Peggy Sue Ledesma answered to the Lord’s call home on June 7, 2023, in Fort Worth, Texas. Peggy was born on August 29,1971 in Yuba City, California to John Ellis and Josefa Ellis.  

In 1985, Peggy met Daniel Ledesma in Dimmit, Texas who soon became her best friend and husband of 36 years. Peggy and Daniel went on to have Four children, James Ledesma, Jacqueline Ledesma, Natasha Villareal, and Jaeden Ledesma. Her dream was to get married and have children. She was more than happy to be the central figure in the lives of her children. Anyone who knew her children knew that she was sunshine in their eyes, and that’s all that ever mattered to her.  

She settled down with her husband, Daniel Ledesma, in Lamesa, Texas. Peggy found joy in attending The Church of God of the Firstborn with her family. She was a youth teacher and the secretary for her church. She did both jobs with punctuality, humility, and grace. Peggy taught us to always stay faithful to what we believe in and depend solely on the Lord. She showed unconditional love and she showed how to forgive. Peggy was a faithful, humble, loving, caring, kind, and giving woman with a sweet spirit. Her life and legacy were one full of living and working for the lord which is a great testimony to us. She fought all her battles through prayer. Her life has always been a blessing to us, and we will always remember her famous words, “Lord willing”.  

She was preceded in death by her mother Josefa Ellis and brother Johnny Joe Ellis.  

Peggy leaves behind her dad, John Ellis, six siblings Joann, Richard, Isabel, John, Eddie, and Donna, two sons James and Jaeden Ledesma, two daughters Jacqueline and Natasha Ledesma, and her dear husband Daniel, along with her 13 grandchildren.  

The family of Peggy Ledesma wishes to thank everyone for all the love, support, and prayers. They would also like to send out a special thanks to all those who helped with the funeral arrangements.
