Peggy grew up in the Bray-Marlow area and graduated from Bray High School. At an early age, Peggy was very much the go-getter and always worked on gaining more knowledge of everything she pursued. She went to beauty school and became an accomplished beautician. She owned and operated Chickasha Beauty School for many years, as well as her own Beauty Shop. She created her own line of cosmetics early on in her life as well as writing a book about hair-color techniques. In 1954, she married Barney Hackney, Jr. in Olympia, Washington. They had two children together; Jami D’Ann Hackney and Mark Duane Hackney. She opened her first retail store, Jamar Fashions in McAlister, Oklahoma then branched out to H & H Fashions in Tecumseh, Oklahoma. She also owned Fads and Fashion in Chickasha, Oklahoma. After the death of her first husband, she married Bob Crutcher on January 11, 1980 in Hawaii. To this marriage, Peggy gained three more children. Rebecca Crutcher Pope, Mark Crutcher, and Tammy Crutcher Tibbetts, all which she considered her own. With Bob already in retail, they continued to happily work together to operate their respective businesses until their retirement in 1994. After several years of traveling to Gunnison Colorado, and fishing at Pine Creek in eastern Oklahoma, Peggy was ready to come out of retirement and began a new career in Real Estate.
