Peggy L. Hackley, 79, of Moberly, MO, formerly of Glasgow, died Tuesday, Nov. 29, 2011 at Moberly Nursing and Rehab in Moberly.

Born June 3, 1932, in Glasgow,  she was the daughter of William and Eunice Reynolds Apel. She married George Hackley, Jr. on Dec. 30, 1950. George preceded her in death on June 3, 2005.

Peggy was a member of the United Methodist Church serving as treasurer for over 20 years. She was also active in civic affairs in Glasgow for many years, having served on City Council, the Glasgow Museum Board and the Library Board.

She acted as City Treasurer for 22 years and sat on the Washington Cemetery Board of Directors for 17 years, serving as Secretary-Treasurer for many of those years. She was the first woman elected to the city council as well as the first woman accepted into the Glasgow Rotary Club.

Over the years, Peggy worked at both the Glasgow Savings Bank and the Tri-County Trust Bank. She also worked as secretary for the Dean of Students at Central Methodist College and later as secretary of the First Christian Church in Fayette.

Peggy’s love of community and local history culminated in the publication of a book entitled “Glasgow – The Way It Was” in which her research and old photographs played an integral part.
Peggy is loved and will be dearly missed by her family, son Mike (Beverly) of Parkville, Mo., and daughter, Kristi (Tom) Sherrard of Belvidere, Ill.

Survivors include five grandchildren: Stephanie Hackley, Dana Rodriguez, Charlene Hackley, Megan (Justin) Benzel and Sarah (Ian) Renteria; great grandchildren, Isaac Moses and Avery Grace Benzel; sister, Cora Marie Walker of Leavenworth, Kansas; also four step-grandchildren, Veronica, Hillary, Amanda and Cody. The family expresses special thanks to friend and caretaker, Rhonda Hocker, whose love and support are appreciated more than words can say.

Funeral service will be at 2 p.m. Friday, at Friemonth-Freese Funeral Chapel in Glasgow with Rev. James Crooks presiding. Visitation will be one hour preceding the service.  Burial will be in Washington Cemetery. 

In lieu of flowers, memorials are suggested to Washington Cemetery of Glasgow in care of Friemonth-Freese Funeral Home, 112 Market, Glasgow, MO 65254.
