Peggy Lea McGlothing Deschner


Peggy Lea McGlothing Deschner, 91, of Conroe, TX went home to our loving heavenly father on, Saturday, August 6, 2022. She is survived by her two sons and daughters-in-law, David Jonathan and Karen Deschner of Cut And Shoot, TX, Michael William and Brenda Lee Deschner of Houston, seven grand-children, James Thomas Bradberry, Tonya Guy, Adam Lea Deschner, Chad Michael Deschner, and Chelsea Lea “The Bug” Deschner and nine great-grandchildren.

She was born February 19, 1931 in Gonzales, TX to Adolph McGlothing and Bess Lea and grew up in Gonzales.  Raised in a home full of love by her mother, aunt, and grandmother, they instilled in her heart and soul the Love of God and gave her a lifetime of cherished memories. It was in the third grade where she was to meet the love of her life and future husband.  She frequently recalls that moment when Arlye William Deschner walked into the classroom and took one look at her and said, “That’s going to be my wife”.  And sure, enough Arlye and Peggy were married on December 2, 1951 in Gonzales at the First United Methodist Church.

Peggy graduated from Sam Houston State University in 1955 with a degree in Teaching and went on to teach the 4th and 5th grade for 20 years.  After collage, Arlye and Peggy moved to Conroe where they became members of Saint Paul’s United Methodist Church.  Because God gave Peggy the gift of music at an early age, she became quite an accomplished musician in her youth.  The pastor of the church asked her to play the piano for the church and so she did for twenty-five years. Peggy loved to serve God with all her heart, mind, sole and strength.  And she did it with a joyful heart.

Peggy has joined Arlye now in heaven where she plays the most beautiful piano and organ music imaginable for God while a choir of Angles sing praise.  I can only envision in my mind the indescribable joy, beauty, and peace.  Well done mom, well done. Your Loving sons, Mike, and David.
