ANDERSON, S.C. — Former Conneaut resident, Peggy L. Dye, age 74, of Anderson, S.C., passed away at AnMed Health Center in Anderson, S.C., Saturday, Nov. 16, 2013.

Born Jan. 25, 1939, in Cowen, W.Va., she was a daughter of John H. and Lenore (Wilson) Chipps. As a girl, she moved with her family to Ohio, where she graduated from Rowe High School in 1957.

Shortly after graduation, she moved to Washington, D.C., and worked as a secretary for the F.B.I. until her marriage.

Her other hobbies were crossword puzzles, reading and working on genealogy. She also was an avid supporter of the Shriners Hospital.

Survivors include her brother, John (Behula) Chipps of Anderson, S.C.; her sisters, Susy (Pat) Watson of Anderson, S.C., and Martha Ross of Conneaut, Ohio; and many nieces and nephews.
