    Name: Gusora "Peggy" LINDSEY
    Sex: F
    Birth: 11 JUN 1908 in Comanche, Comanche Co, Texas
    Death: 27 FEB 1971 in Houston, Texas

    Jack B. Lindsey, NM - Gusora (Peggy) Lindsay Freeman, b. 6-ll-08 in
    Comanche, Tx., d. 2-27-71, Houston, Tx., twin sistor to Victorio (Victor
    T.). Aunt Gusora was a raven haired beauty we all adored. She was soft
    spoken, tender hearted, funny, irreverant, and a doting mother who
    treated each of us as her own. Although she lived in Houston and we in
    Southeastern New Mexico, she managed to see us once a year for a week or
    two. She and Dad were as close as anyone could be barring siamese twins.
    Their love for each other was absolute from the day they were born until
    she died in l971. Dad was never the same and went downhill from that time

    When Emma died, Jackson had no way to raise Gusora in the wild oil towns
    he favored. Also, Jackson married a harridan who had no use for his
    kids. Gusora spent her teen years in an orphanage run by the Salvation
    Army which Gusora described as a convent where she spent her days in
    school and her free time playing in the uniformed Salvation Army band
    soliciting donations. She was allowed to take the train to see her family
    whereever they might be in the summer. She grew up to be a beautiful,
    self-sufficient lady, somewhat prone to hysteria if she lost patience. I
    never saw her that whe wasn't chain smoking, so in looking back I realise
    she was tightly wired but she carried herself well and made the most of
    life even if it was through a pall of smoke. She had a regal air about
    her as she sailed in and out of our lives like a clipper ship under full
    canvas. She held various jobs in Houston until her early twenties when
    she met and married a big handsome man named Richard Richarson. He
    thought he was way too cute for just one woman, so Gusora had hell living
    with him because of his infidelity. She divorced him just before the war
    started, and along with Hattie worked in defense plants in the Houston
    area. She married Woodrow Freeman, a municipal bus driver, and the two
    enjoyed a loving, stable relationship. Their first child was Vicky Rae,
    born during the war. She was a sweet but sickly little girl with kidney
    problems. She died when she was about six, and thus broke Gusora's
    heart. For years she would talk about Vicky Rae and cry. We would try
    to steer her away from the subject, because we always knew where the
    conversation was going with Gusora in tears. She had another little girl,
    Peggy Ann, as adorable as her mother and the light of Gusora's and
    Woody's lives. She lives in the Houston area, is married to a big
    dependable fellow named Zukero, and has several growing and grown kids.

    I will always love Aunt Gusora.
