Mrs. Margaret “Peggy” McKey went home to be with her Lord and Savior on Wednesday, November 18, 2020. She was born March 29, 1935 in Harnedsville, PA, the only child of Arnold and Mary Camp. She wed Delbert “Del” McKey on May 29, 1954. They were married almost 50 years when Del preceded her in death in 2004. Following his passing, Peggy remained in Jacksonville for 16 years. Peggy was a dedicated Christian woman who enjoyed reading her bible every day. She also enjoyed watching Billy Graham and Charles Stanley on television.

In her younger years, Peggy played the piano at University Baptist Church for 20+ years. In 1978, Peggy and Del moved their membership to First Baptist Church, downtown Jacksonville, where she was a committed Sunday School teacher for many years. After Del’s passing, Peggy joined Southpoint Baptist Church in 2011. She is best remembered for the love and care she gave in raising her family as a devoted wife, mother, grandmother, great grandmother and friend.

She was predeceased by her parents and husband, Delbert McKey.

The most wonderful teacher I ever had at First Baptist. A precious friend since 1978 when we both joined First Baptist that year. She was my neighbor I found out and we shared rides sometimes to church functions and just felt like she was always there for me when I needed her and truly she was, having lost two family members while in her class. I will never forget her kindnesses shown to me and will always remember her faithfulness to teach the word faithfully every Sunday as long as she was able to.

Words cannot express what Peggy (and Del) meant to us through the years. Del and Peggy was our teachers at Lovegrove church
while we were still dating.. then friends since that time. Peggy was matron of honor at our wedding and then my Sunday School teacher at FBC for several years. We shared many precious memories over the years and through them all, we have never seen any couple more godly and happy serving the Lord. Such a great example for us to follow. Your family will always be in our hearts and one day we will meet them again. Love you all.

Mrs.McKey was an extraordinary human being,i was so blessed by God to have known her.She really exemplified Christ like behaviour.She was one of my favorite customers when i worked at Publix.And i further also served her late mom and dad at the old publix as well.I have not seen her for a long time and i am sorry to see she has now gone home to be with the Lord.Our loss however ,is Heavens gain.I send my sympathy and my love to her dear family.And i will be remembering you all in my prayers this week.We were so blessed to have had her.I just know the Lord Jesus is now saying Well done thou good and faithful servant!
