Visitation will be from Noon until 2:00 p.m. on Monday, February 26, 2024 at Short- Cunningham Funeral Home.

Peggy was born to George & Juanita (Summers) Hall, on April 9, 1951. She married the love of her life, Jerry Lee Wright on June 9,1971. Together sharing 24 years, until his passing in June 1995.

From their Holy Union of Matrimony were born six children: Jerry (Angela) Wright, Leann (Brandon) Davenport, John (Tamara) Wright, Jennifer (Michael) Hadley, Autumn (Josh) Harms, Brian Wright; fourteen grandchildren, Tyler (Lexi) Wright, Rachel (Hunter) Morehead, Aleczander Wright, Leslie (Logan) Lashbrook, Rebecca Yarbor, Taylor Davenport, Brendan, Breanna, & Taigen Wright, Austin Knust, Emily Dill, Aleah Hadley, Michael & Elizabeth Harms; two great-grandchildren, Benton & Everly Lashbrook.

Preceding her in death besides her parents & husband were her brother, John Hall, and sister, Dorothy Goodman.

She fought a very long and difficult battle continuously the last year of her life, but was truly inspirational, as she leaned into Jesus, trusting, and surrendering to Him. Throughout it all she wanted her children to know just how much she loved them, and that she was “okay”.

Peggy dedicated her life as a homemaker. She was a talented cook hosting Thanksgiving and Christmas dinners every year. Besides working in her yard with flowers and ornaments, she loved to put together flower arrangements, sit on her front porch, or cuddle up on her sofa to the Hallmark Channel or with a Western along with Faye, her little dog that she loved dearly. Peggy was also a long-time member of The VFW Ladies Auxiliary.

Her absence from the family will be greatly felt and greatly missed.
