Obituary for Margaret Anne McFarland

Margaret “Peggy” Anne McFarland, daughter of late Paul Ripley Murdock and Olive Cora Murdock peacefully departed this life on Thursday, March 22, 2018 at Southland Health and Rehabilitation in Peachtree City, GA. She was born November 12, 1928 in Paden City, West Virginia. She graduated from Marienville High School in Marienville, PA in 1946. Peggy married “Bill” McFarland, the love of her life, on March 9, 1947. This union was blessed with eight children.

Peggy was an active member of the Forest Park Moose Lodge where she enjoyed playing bingo every chance she got. She was known to have a sweet tooth and would buy lots of sweets that she claimed was for “the kids.”

Her life was summed up in her favorite scripture, Psalm 121: 1-2
I will lift up mine eyes unto the hills, from whence cometh my help. My help
cometh from the LORD, which made heaven and earth.

Peggy showed incredible strength through the many challenges of life; a strength that could only come from the Lord.

Besides her parents, she is preceded in death by her husband, Theodore William “Bill” McFarland, Sr.; sons, Theodore “Teddy” William McFarland, Jr. and baby boy McFarland; daughter, Beverly McFarland; son-in-law, Ralph “Van” Hicks; and granddaughter, Lisa Dawn Hicks. Her beautiful life will be forever remembered in the lives of her children, Karen Hicks, Barbara (Ken) Tucker, Gale Rowan, Cheryl (Mike) Lee, and John McFarland; daughter in law, Julie McFarland; grandchildren, Cody (Meredith) Hicks, Stacey (Blake) McDonald, Amy (Jason) Myers, David (Tiffany) Rowan, Brent (Shelby) Rowan, Shanna (Brandon) Croft, Jason Lee, Courtney McFarland, April McFarland, Brittany (Joel) Edwards, and Meredith (Adam) Lovin; and twenty-one great-grandchildren (plus one on the way).

A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00 PM on Sunday, March 25, 2018 at the Chapel of Mowell Funeral Home, Fayetteville. Burial will follow the service at Sherwood Memorial Gardens in Jonesboro. The family will receive friends from 1:00-2:00 PM prior to the service on Sunday.
