Elizabeth Peachey

February 26, 1928 — February 15, 2024

Oakland

Elizabeth Mae Peachey, 95, of Oakland, MD, passed away on February 15, 2024, surrounded by her family. Born on February 26, 1928, in Belleville, PA, she was the daughter of the late Rufus A. and Annie L. (Zook) Peachey.

Elizabeth attended Belleville Public School. She was baptized in her youth upon her confession of faith and was a faithful member of the Gortner Amish Church. She was a loyal companion of her late husband, David C. Peachey, Sr., for over 74 years. She supported him in all his endeavors of their family, farm, and finances. Elizabeth demonstrated a resilient faith in God in all the trials of life. She tackled difficult tasks and enjoyed them, teaching her children to do the same. While she was able, she was especially fond of working outdoors, with an eye for orderliness. After retirement, David and Elizabeth enjoyed traveling and spending time with friends, and were always glad to hear about the latest addition to the family.

She is survived by fourteen children, Ann, widow of Aquilla Kanagy of McVeytown, PA, Lavina Renno and husband John of Lewistown, PA, Katie Peachey and husband Crist of Belleville, PA, Emma Swarey and husband Henry of Mattawanna, PA, Alta, widow of Leon Miller of Commodore, PA, Barbara Wanner and husband Warren of Cornersville, TN, Ruth Schrock and husband Ezra of Oakland, MD, Rufus Peachey and wife Rachel (Yoder) of Oakland, MD, Samuel Peachey and wife Betty (Hershberger) of Campbell, Hill, IL, Reuben Peachey and wife Ada (Swartzentruber) of Oakland, MD, David Peachey, Jr. and wife Tena (Petersheim) of Oakland, MD, Rhoda Kinsinger and husband Henry of Oakland, MD, Lois Schrock and husband Albert of Oakland, MD, Elizabeth Bender and husband Edwin of Castorland, NY; 83 grandchildren; 187 great grandchildren; two great great grandchildren; and three siblings, Jacob Peachey, Barbara Byler and husband Henry, and David Peachey and wife Linda; along with numerous nieces, nephews, and friends.
