Klata Rae Peacock

June 14, 1940 — July 4, 2023

Arlington

Klata Rae Woodul was born in Lamesa, Texas on June 14th, 1940, and grew up on a cotton farm there in Dawson county. She had a wonderful family, including a mother and father who were very supportive of her as well as siblings she loved - an older sister, Lexeen, and two younger brothers Zant and Greg. After graduating Miss Tornado from Lamesa High, she attended The University of Texas at Austin where she met her future husband, George Eugene Peacock II. Married after college, they lived in Dallas while George attended Southwestern Medical school and Klata taught at Bryan Adams High School. They then moved to Arlington to start a family and where her husband worked at Arlington Memorial Hospital. Her only child George III, or Tres, was born in 1970, and survives her with his wife Anna and their two daughters Lilly & Eliza. Klata cherished her two granddaughters, and loved to go on shopping adventures with the girls and serve them over-sugared oatmeal. She was also a great mother-in-law, treating Anna with a love that always knew just the right boundaries.
After her husband passed away from leukemia in 1974, Klata became an interior decorator and worked in the profession until her son graduated high school, at which point she went back to teaching, with stints as a language teacher at Pantego Christian Academy and The Oak Ridge School. She was also a new member of First Presbyterian Church in Arlington. 
Klata was a strongly independent woman, who loved to travel and be creative. Her decorating, painting and piano were things that gave her great joy. So too did her friends, whom she cherished and loved to do things for and with. Her cheerleading and enthusiasm for others, and penchant for always trying to make the small things special will be dearly missed.
There will be a celebration of life service at a later date.

 In lieu of flowers, the family would ask that you consider a donation to Mission Arlington.
