Nancy Peugh With the Lord

Nancy Peugh With the Lord

Early Wednesday morning (Sept. 28) Nancy Peugh, former Encompass missionary in Germany, passed away. Her husband Roger is a professor at Grace College and Seminary in Winona Lake, Indiana. Both are well known and loved in the States and around the world, and have been active in ministry regardless of age.

A message from Winona Lake Grace Brethren Church to the congregation on Wednesday shared details: "Please pray for Roger Peugh and the family as his wife, Nancy, went to be with the Lord at 2:48 this morning. Many of you know that she had a heart attack on September 19, and three stents were placed in her heart. She came home on September 22 and was recovering well. Nancy began having symptoms of another heart attack last evening, so Roger took her to KCH. She was then flown by helicopter to Fort Wayne, where doctors found that she had a clot in the area where the stents had been placed. Her heart was badly damaged and one part had stopped functioning. She passed away at 2:48 a.m. Daughter, Lynae (along with husband, Alf, and their daughter, Adeline) and son, Phil, were with Roger at the hospital. Pray for comfort for the family and for the many friends that Nancy had throughout the world, who will miss her greatly. We will keep you informed as we find out the service arrangements."

Services for Nancy will be held at 2:30 p.m., Saturday, October 8, 2016, on the campus of Grace College. Her obituary, along with funeral and visitation information, appears below.
