Peggy, born on July 30, 1945 to M. Rea and Martha Morton in Protection, Kansas, was a twin to Marvin Rea “Bucky” Morton. Peggy was considered the baby of the family as she was born ~5 minutes after Bucky.

After graduation with an Associate’s Degree, Peggy attended University of Kansas (KU) where she met the love of her life, O. Richard Beaman in German class. The two were wed on September 11, 1966.

Peggy was a member of the Johnson County Doll and Teddy Bear society where she attended regular monthly meetings and was the secretary for a short while. Peggy traveled to Doll and Teddy Bear conventions where she could share her love of dolls with others.
