Peggy J. (Smith) Parks, 91, of Masonville, left this Earth Sunday, May 21, 2023, under the care of Hospice of W. Kentucky. The Daviess County native was born June 9, 1931, to the late Archie and Clarice Wigginton Smith. Peggy started as an intern at Murphy-Miller chair company until she graduated from Owensboro Tech High School when she was immediately hired full-time.

She married the love of her life and both were charter members of Masonville Baptist Church in 1958. They volunteered in many different positions along with many friends and fellowship.

In addition to her parents, Peggy also was preceded in death by her husband, William E. “Bill” Parks, in 2019; siblings, Nancy Smith and Thomas Smith; sister-in-law, Judy Smith; and nephew, Ted Smith.
