Peggy Simmons Swayze

Peggy Ruth Simmons Swayze went to be with her Lord and Savior Jesus Christ on March 3, 2023, following a brief illness.

She is preceded in death by her beloved husband of 67 years, Frank Allen Swayze; parents, Joseph and Hattie Simmons; and one sister, JoAnn Carter.

She is survived by two daughters, Cyndi Swayze and Connie Swayze Davis (Mike Davis); one granddaughter, Kelsey Swayze Davis; and one grandson, Zach Davis. She is also survived by one sister, Gail Nienheis, as well as multiple nieces and nephews.
