Callie Cowart Peeples, age 91, of Brunswick, went to be with her Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ, Friday, October 4, 2019 at Hospice of the Golden Isles in Brunswick.

Callie was one of seven children born to Elmer and Lucy Cowart of Reidsville, Georgia. She was a graduate of Reidsville High School, attended Georgia Teachers College (now known as Georgia Southern University) and Drawn’s Business College. Callie played on several Industrial League basketball and softball teams in Savannah and Reidsville where she excelled. She married Charles Emmett Peeples in Savannah, GA in 1948. They later resided in Rocky Mt., NC and Reidsville, GA before making Brunswick, GA their permanent home.

Callie worked in the credit department at Sears and Roebuck then later worked as the Financial Aid Director of Brunswick Junior College, now College of Coastal Georgia, until her retirement. She also taught Sunday School at Norwich Street Church of God and Golden Isles Church of God. She will always be remembered as someone who was compassionate, encouraging, and generous. Her joy was the love from her family and friends and her unwavering faith in God. She will be greatly missed by all who were blessed enough to call her Mom, Grandma, Great Grandma, and Friend.

She is survived by two children, Charleen Fisher (Randy) and Joe Peeples (Teresa) of Brunswick; four granddaughters, Anne-Marie Jones (Matt) of Brunswick, Erica Bush (Sidney) of Brunswick, Stephanie Viness (Bo) of Statesboro and Rachel Peeples of Brunswick; three great-grandchildren, Callie, Andrew and Ethan Jones, all of Brunswick and a sister, Mary Nell Wilson of Pickerington, Ohio.

Charleen and Joe,
I was saddened to learn of your sweet Mothers passing. I remember going over to your house and riding your mini bike until dark and how welcoming she always was. Also, I remember all of the help she gave my older brother when it came time for him to fill out ALL of those financial aid papers for college. What a blessing it was to have her help and assistance.
Please know that you and your families are in our thoughts and prayers and a we pray for peace and comfort in the days ahead.
Love, Denesha

I must say this news made me so sad. Until I thought of the rewards that this precious soul received when she entered into Heaven! She taught and served so many people throughout her life, and I’m so proud to say Fred and I were two of them! Thank you, Sister Callie for giving to the Lord! Much love and prayers for all of the family!

She was one of the first people at the college who made us feel welcomed and cared for. Precious smile and spirit. Her family was blessed to have had her as a mother and us as a friend. Prayers.

Callie and I have the same birthday....Callie was the best Sunday School teacher in the world!! She studied the word of God relentlessly! We had lots of laughs together and I loved visiting in her home. Charleen and Joe were just little ones. Callie introduced me to the man who would become my children’s dad. Also she helped me obtain scholarships and financial aide so I could get my Associates Degree and accomplish my dream of being a Nurse. Without her help I wouldn’t be who I am today! Thank you Callie for caring about me so many years ago! You’ll always be in my heart!

Sad I can't be there but happy she is with the Lord. I know she had to be ready to go. She was such a foundation for me growing up in the Lord and just being there for me while I was going through so much. I love your family so much and are praying for y'all during this time.
