EngagementsAfter her marriage, Velma made her new husband's home town her own -- the little railroad stop of Byron, Georgia. The Peavys were prominent there.
WILLIAMS -- PEAVY
Mr. and Mrs. H. J. Williams announce the engagement of their daughter, Velma, to Wallace Peavy, Jr., the wedding to be solemnized in October at the Methodist church, Ellaville.

Velma died 24 December 1989 in Union Point, Greene County, Georgia. I presume she was visiting or staying with her daughter at the time. Her residence was still listed as Academy Street in Byron, Peach County.
Her obituary was listed in the 26 December 1989 edition of the Augusta Chronicle:
Mrs. Wallace Peavy
BYRON, Ga -- Mrs. Wallace Peavy, 89, of Academy Street, died Sunday, Dec. 24, 1989, in Union Point.
|Byron United Methodist Church|
Mrs. Peavy, a native of Ellaville, had retired as a schoolteacher from the Peach County school system after 32 years of service. She was a member of the Georgia Retired Teachers Association and Byron United Methodist Church. She was a graduate of Mercer University, Macon.
Survivors include a daughter, four granddaughters and two great-granddaughters."
Velma was my second cousin, twice removed in law.
