Family Says ‘Selfless’ Church Massacre Victim Died Shielding Her Grandson from Gunfire

Authorities on Wednesday confirmed that Peggy Lynn Warden, a grandmother, sister, mother and devout Texan woman, was among those killed in Sunday’s church massacre.

“She was a woman of faith, not just in her church but in the way she lived her life every day,” her sister Leisa Kugler tells People. “She was absolutely the most selfless person I’ve ever know.”

Warden, who grew up just five miles from First Baptist Church in Sutherland Springs, Texas, was fatally shot when a 26-year-old gunman opened fire in the rural church on Sunday morning, killing 25 people and an unborn baby and injuring 20 more.
