OBITUARIES Peggy Sue Davis Cobb

She was preceded in death by her parents; her husband, James “Bo” Cobb; a daughter, Sherry Gardner; and two sons-in-law, Alan Curtis and Lester Gardner.
Peggy married her high school sweetheart, Bo Cobb, on July 8, 1944, and together they enjoyed 67 wonderful years of marriage. God blessed Peggy and Bo with four daughters and a son who have all faithfully followed their parents’ example with a living faith in Jesus Christ.

After her children reached adulthood, she used her gift to bless others through preparing and cooking food full-time at Ringgold Elementary School and in the summer at Barton Bible Camp.
