She attended schools in her hometown, graduating from high school in 1940.She then attended Iowa State Teacher’s College in Cedar Falls, Iowa. She married Jack LeMarr Darland, Sr. in Hannibal, Missouri on November 24, 1942. She spent many years as a homemaker, then later returned to college and completed a degree in Library Science.

She spent many years volunteering in the Cresco United Methodist Church as a Sunday school teacher and church librarian and was a long-time member of PEO and the Howard County Historical Society.

Peggy was a much loved mother and community member. She enjoyed golfing, camping, canoeing, jigsaw puzzles, cooking, volunteering, card and board games and was a master bridge player, but loved her large family most of all.
