Peggy Lowrance Cress, age 88, passed away Wednesday, July 26, 2023, after an extended illness. She was a graduate of Mt. Ulla High School in 1953. She was known in this community and by all who loved her for her generous heart and nature. She was a loving wife, mother, sister, aunt, and mamaw.
Her priorities in life were her God, her family, and her love for farming and gardening. Her selfless spirit enabled her to provide a beautiful life for her husband and two children. The community also knew her for her servant’s heart through serving as an LPN. She established and co-ran a Christian Book Store and Christian Heritage Academy with Mitchell in Mooresville. Later in life, her passions included crafting and delivering handmade cards to shut-ins, arranging flowers for others, and taking every opportunity to share her love for the Lord with others.
Preceded in death by her high school sweetheart and husband, Clyde “Mitchell” Cress of 50 years and daughter, Janis Elaine Cress. She is survived by her son, Carmon Cress (Annette) and daughter Malynda Cress; grandchildren, Tonya Kepley (Billie); Angie Fink (Roger); Nick Duncan (Jorie); Jake Duncan; Chelsea Willard (Mike); great-grandchildren, Kyrsten Kepley, Kassie Fink, DJ Duncan, Kadence Kepley, Korben Fink, Grady Duncan, Ainsley Duncan, and Amelia Duncan.
The family will receive friends and family from 11:00am - 12:00pm on Saturday, July 29, 2023, at Landmark Church, 1910 Mooresville Road Salisbury, NC. The service will immediately follow the visitation, officiated by Pastor Mike Robinson and Billie Kepley. Burial will follow at St. Luke’s Lutheran Church Cemetery, 11020 NC Hwy 801, Mt. Ulla, NC 28125. At additional times, the family can be reached at the Billie and Tonya Kepley residence.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests that donations be made in memory of Peggy Cress to Cadence Mooresville Assisted Living, 198 E Waterlynn Rd Mooresville, NC 28117; or “paying it forward” to spread the love of God to those around you.
