Meet Your Neighbor: Marie Peel


Family: The Peel family includes by husband of 25 years, Larry, my 10-year-old son, James, my 13-year-old daughter, Jessie, my “second daughter” 13-year-old Paige Gonzales, and our 8-month-old chocolate lab, Tucker. We have lived in East End almost 10 years.

Occupation: I’m a full-time wife, mother, family life coordinator and part-time self employed.

Hobbies: Camping, hiking, and vintage Volkswagens, Airstreams and lighting. I enjoy shopping for, looking for, or just talking about anything that is vintage.

Volunteer activities: I enjoy volunteering and helping our community. My proudest baby is the East End Community Neighborhood Watch Group. Working together with Mary Hess and Beverly Sudduth, our Neighborhood Watch Group has grown faster than we ever imagined. I also serve on the East End Parade Board, along with three other wonderful ladies.

Three guests at my fantasy dinner: Bob Marley, my grandmother who passed away when my mother was only 16, and any one of our American forefathers.

Dream vacation destination: I would love to spend time in Ireland.

Last book I read: I don't have time for novels, but I spend many hours referencing vintage items, from purses to glassware.

Favorite sport: volleyball.

Cats or dogs? Dogs, for sure.

Favorite food: I'm a foodie! I like sushi, Thai and Greek foods, perfectly paired with a bottle of wine, of course.

What fun fact would most people be surprised to learn about you? I'm actually a full blooded Cajun, born and raised in southern Louisiana. (I just don't look like one!)
