Obituary for Peggy Sue Buckley

Peggy Gandy Buckley, age 74, passed away peacefully on February 13, 2018 at her home, surrounded by her family and loved ones after a lengthy illness. Peggy was born March 21, 1943, in Hazelhurst, MS to Earnest C. Gandy and Blanche S. Gandy.
Peggy moved to Pascagoula in 1958 with her family. She attended Our Lady of Victories High School and Pascagoula High School. Following her graduation from PHS in 1961, she attended Mississippi Gulf Coast Community College in Perkingston, MS where she majored in nursing.
On February 6, 1963, Peggy married the love of her life Noel B. (Buck) Buckley. She was a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, and homemaker. Possessing a true servant’s heart, Peggy fostered many children over the years through the Jackson County Welfare System and was very active in Pascagoula Girls Softball, where she served as president for many years. She was also active in the Pascagoula Dixie Youth Baseball Program. She was a member of Ingalls Avenue Baptist Church where she was active in Sunday school and volunteered in the nursery.
Throughout her life she maintained a sweet and simple demeanor that won the hearts of many, who were forever changed by her constant nurturing and love. Peggy was a woman of faith and always led by her Christian example.
Peggy is preceded in death by her parents, Earnest C. Gandy and Blanche S. Gandy and her sisters, Patricia G. Johnson and Sherrie G. McIlrath. Peggy is survived by her devoted husband of 55 years Noel B. (Buck) Buckley; four children, Cynthia B. Sharpe (Raymond M. Blake), Gina B. Williams (Brett), Jeffery Todd Buckley (Amy) and Melissa Dawn Buckley; six grandchildren, who lovingly called her “Mimi,” Jared, Lauren, Parker, Reed, Sarah, and Wesley; three great grandchildren; sister, Marsha R. Gandy; numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family.
The entire Buckley family wishes to extend their gratitude to Hospice of Light, Robin Jackson, RN and CNAs Sheila, Shonda, and Shirley for their love, care and dedication shown to Peggy during her illness. The family would also like to especially thank Peggy’s caregivers Lisa Gordon, her husband, Rod and Ida Riaola for their compassion, friendship, and care.
