Peggy C. Stocker

July 14, 1937 — August 14, 2012

Peggy Stocker, 75, passed away on Tuesday, August 14, 2012.

Peggy was born on July 14, 1937 in Louisville, Kentucky at Deaconess Hospital to the late James and Rosemary Wilson of Louisville. She was a homemaker, mother, wife, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Peggy was very active with her family and was extremely proud of them all. She was confidante to her precious grandchildren, who were her world, and her greatest passion was going camping with her husband and attending NASCAR races with her children. Peggy enjoyed watching every University of Kentucky basketball game and most every Kentucky Derby race at Churchill Downs. She also loved keeping in shape with Water Aerobics at The Cantrell Center.

A member of Christ United Methodist Church, Peggy was also a member for forty odd years of Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. She spent twenty-two years as a Volunteer Advocate with HODAC Rape Crisis and Domestic Violence Team and also served on the HODAC Board. Peggy was Volunteer of the Year and Woman of the Year with both organizations. She was preceded in death by her son, John Edward Stocker; her parents; and her uncle, Earl Brummit.
