Margaret McCully

October 27, 1958January 10, 2021

Margaret J. “Peg” McCully, 62, of Sandyston Township died Sunday, January 10, 2021, at home surrounded by her loving family.

Peg was a longtime Sussex County resident. Her two loves in life were her family and her career. She was a registered nurse who selflessly devoted her life to her patients and the last 12 years of her career to Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice and the Home for Hospice in Fredon, where she was the Resident Administrator. She found tranquility in quilting and painting, along with bird watching and photography which she did with her devoted husband. She spent her life visiting LBI with her family and dogs and enjoyed afternoon trips to Sunrise Mountain with her husband revisiting the place they exchanged vows.

Peg was predeceased by her father, Peter G. Doorly; her father and mother- in-law, James and Jeanne McCully; her sister-in-law, Patricia; and her nephew, Christopher. She is survived by her loving mother Joan (Stines) Doorly; the love of her life, Michael McCully; her children, Matthew Minion, Michael A. McCully, Sara Tyler and husband, Garrett, and Emily Ehret and husband, Brian; along with her grandchildren, Benjamin, Allison and Liam. Peg also leaves behind her siblings, Christopher (MaryAnn), Kathleen, Lisa (Erik), Susie (Jimmy), James (Ketley), Maureen, and Timothy (Diane); as well as many cousins, nieces and nephews.

Memorial Visitation will be held from 1 to 3 pm and 5 to 7 pm on Friday, January 15, 2021, at the Wood Funeral Home, 16 Main St, Branchville, NJ 07826. Memorial donations may be made to Karen Ann Quinlan Hospice, 99 Sparta Ave, Newton, NJ 07860. Online condolences may be offered at

Keeping you and Brian, Ben and Allison in my heart.
Loosing your mother is very hard. But when you tell "Margaretisms" smiles will creep on your face and warm you heart.
These you see you through the tough times ahead; eventually it
will be easier.
Sending BIG hugs,

Sara and Emily, I am so sorry for your loss. Your Mom was a special woman, and she really cared about both of you. She was the kind of person that anyone would be glad to meet while out shopping etc. She was very proud of you. Deepest sympathies go to you and the rest of your family.
