Peggy Jean Damon, 72, of Mountain Lake Park died on Friday, December 18, 2020, at home, surrounded by her family. Born on October 31, 1948, in Cumberland, she was the daughter of Betty E. (Jeffers) Glotfelty of Oakland and the late Donald B. Glotfelty.
Peggy enjoyed reading, knitting, her "Kissin Cousin" reunions and monthly luncheons with her dear friends. Most of all, she enjoyed spending time with her family, Friday night dinners at her home and traveling with her children and family. Her favorite destination, other than home, was the beach. Peggy had a very special connection with her great nieces and nephews. They will remember her for chocolate chip cookies, cinnamon rolls and "Bill".
She graduated from the International Beauty School, Cumberland, Maryland, in 1967 and began her cosmetology profession at Style Right in Oakland. She was mentored in business by Carolyn Germain and June Bray. Her career spanned 54 years and became abbreviated during the COVID-19 pandemic. Her lifelong clientelle became friends and family, not only to her but to her extended family.
In addition to her mother, she is survived by her two children, Robbin Tonkovich and Pat Ware of Kingwood, WV and Dr. Patrick Damon of Mtn. Lake Park; grandchildren, Kane Tonkovich, and Shae Tonkovich and companion Jarrod Styer; sister, Sue Damon and husband Andy; brother, Butch Glotfelty and wife Ann; sister in law, Charlotte Crosby; brother in law, Frank Damon; and numerous nieces and nephews.
In addition to her father, she was preceded in death by her husband, Robert R. Damon, in 2000 and sisters-in-law, Mary Murphree, Margaret Starkey, Helen Alvord, and Alice Blorstad. Friends will be received at the C & S Fredlock Funeral Home, P.A., 21 N 2nd St. Oakland on Sunday, December 20, 2020, from 3 to 6 PM.
