In 1949, Peggy Mur­phy mar­ried Donald Parks and moved to Prairie Grove, where Donald was as­so­ci­ated with the fam­ily busi­ness, Prairie Grove Tele­phone Com­pany, founded by his grand­fa­ther, Dr. E.G McCormick in the 1880s. Their son, David McCormick Parks, was born in 1954.

Peggy taught Sun­day School at First Pres­by­te­rian Church of Prairie Grove for 33 years. In 1957, the su­per­in­ten­dent of schools in Prairie Grove asked Peggy to sub­sti­tute teach in a split first- and sec­ond-grade class, and Peggy knew she had found her call­ing.

In 2007, the Parks fam­ily re­ceived the Life­time Phil­an­thropic Achieve­ment award at the an­nual lun­cheon of the As­so­ci­a­tion of Fundrais­ing Pro­fes­sion­als.

In 2012, the Ep­ley Cen­ter for Health Pro­fes­sions build­ing on the Univer­sity of Arkansas cam­pus ded­i­cated the sec­ond floor to Peggy and her mother, Emilia Mur­phy, RN. This build­ing en­abled the univer­sity to dou­ble the num­ber of grad­u­ate nurses.
