On Saturday September 24th, 2022, Margaret Ann Schley “Peggy” passed away. Margaret was born on March 8th , 1934, to John and Irene “Simpson” Nelson in Oakgrove, Kentucky.

Peggy was a dedicated wife, mother, and grandmother, who had a fierce love for God and her family. In
her free time, you could find Peggy playing an intense game of clabber with her siblings and in-laws. She was a huge fan of her TV soaps (especially Yellowstone), the Gaither Vocal Band, and watching MSN BC.  Peggy’s favorite treat was the lemon cake and hot chocolate that her brother-in-law, Rick, always brought her.

Peggy is survived by her four daughters, Sandy (Rodney) Nelson, Debbie (Elza) Greene, Jeannie (Joe)
Devoy, Laurie Gonzalez; sixteen grandchildren, thirty-two great grandchildren, ten great great
grandchildren; sister, Chris Smith; sister, Vicki (Rick) Jackson; brother, Jay (Jean) Nelson; and many
nieces, nephews, and extended family.

Along with her parents, Peggy is preceded in death by her loving husband of sixty-six years, Charles
“Bud” Schley; infant son, Jerry Wayne Schley; sister, Thelma (Elon “Sonny”) Grimm; sister, Katherine
“Kat” (Arthur “Basil”) Masterson; son-in-law, Ed Gonzalez; brother-in-law, John Smith; granddaughter,
Breana Logsdon; great great grandson, Baby Atticus; and great great granddaughter, Emma Rose

The family would also like to express their sincere gratitude to Kyle, and all the doctors and nurses at St.
Vincent Hospital, the staff at North River, and all of the Angels at Heart to Heart Hospice.

Services will be held at Sunset Funeral Home on Friday, September 30th . Visitation will be from 3pm to
5pm, with the funeral immediately following.

In lieu of flowers the family would like donations to be made to Heart to Heart Hospice or the American
Cancer Society.
