Tribute

Texie Peek VanDevender, 86, was called home by the Lord on Wednesday, December 20, 2023. She was a scholar, a mother, a wife, a sister, and a devout Christian.

Texie graduated from Mary Washington University with a bachelor’s degree, then continued her education at The University of Virginia where she received her master’s degree. Texie had an incredible love for learning and shared this love with her students. She taught the third and fourth grade for more than thirty years at Ferry Farm Elementary, and more importantly, she touched the hearts of her students for those many years. After she retired, though her teaching career was done she never stopped teaching. She continued to share her wisdom with her family and friends for many years after. In her retirement, she had the privilege to do what she loved and travel to beautiful destinations around the world.  

Texie is survived by her youngest son, John, as well as John’s wife Amy; her grandchildren, Chalie and Victoria; her sisters, Nita and Doris; her brother, Gordon; and her loving nieces and nephews. Texie preceded in death by her husband, Eddie; her sons, Victor and Mark; her dear brother, Jesse and Vaughn; and her parents, Fred and Celia Peek.

Texie enjoyed spending time with her friends: Kathy, Ellie, Elliot, Lee, Merle, Louise, Gloria, Sandy, Betty, and countless others that brought her joy. They provided love, care, aid, and above all companionship to her.

Texie was a devout Christian, her service to the Lord extended throughout her life and her faith was felt warmly by all who were around her. She was not scared when she passed, she was surrounded by her loved ones and she was ready for the next chapter, a chapter she knew in her heart that she would be spending with God.

A service will be held at 10:30 a.m. on Wednesday, December 27, 2023 at Covenant Funeral Service, Fredericksburg. The family will receive friends one hour prior to the service at the funeral home chapel. Interment will follow in Sunset Memorial Gardens.
