Peggy "Peg" McMillan / Joanna Moore


A Mayberry State Of Mind
Proudly Presents

Peggy "Peg" McMillan / Joanna Moore



Peggy "Peg" McMillan



 The County Nurse Peggy McMillan, played by Joanna Moore. While Peggy McMillan was only in four episodes very few know actual facts about the character and she is still the pick of many as the perfect pick for Andy.. Peggy McMillan, with her thick southern accent, was the daughter of a wealthy man operating a large feed in grain company. Peggy McMillan traveled the world searching for the lime life spent time in France and drank exotic drinks such as Sazerac. She drove a Ford Thunderbird which at the time was considered high class and seemed to enjoy the fast pass of the big city. Peggy also seemed like the other women of Mayberry to be able to put Andy back in his place while still allowing him to feel like a man, she was also the first of Andy's female friends to wear slacks, jeans in fact.


Joanna Moore

 Southern bred beauty Joanna Moore certainly had a lot of things going for her when her career started off in the 50s. Armed with an entrancingly smoky voice that complimented her stunning, creamy blond beauty, Joanna played wily females in such films as Walk on the Wild Side and Son of Flubber ,but she would be best remembered, however, as the benevolent girlfriend of Sheriff Andy Taylor in the third season of "The Andy Griffith Show" (1960). At the peak of her career, Joanna married her "Prince Charming", actor 'Ryan O'Neal, on April 3, 1963. O'Neal, of course, would make a huge impact as Rodney Harrington the following year on the nighttime soap "Peyton Place"
(1964). The good-looking couple had two children who also became actors - 'Tatum O'Neal (later Oscar-winner) and 'Griffin O'Neal. The marriage, however, was tempestuous, to say the least, and they divorced acrimoniously in February of 1967. Things started to slide after that for Joanna. She lost her children in 1970 due to severe drug and alcohol addiction. Both of her children would battle similar problems as adults. There was talk that Joanna was living in self-styled communes and had completely abandoned herself from any Hollywood contact. She was not heard of for decades until discovered in the Palm Springs area involving herself in small theater projects. Joanna died in 1997 of lung cancer with her daughter Tatum at her side.
