Sherri Peavy Obituary, Death – On Friday, December 2, 2022, at the age of 58 years old, Sherri Leigh Peavy was found to have abruptly gone away at her home. At a later time, there will be private services performed in his memory. In lieu of sending flowers, the family prefers that memorial contributions be sent to Women Reaching Our Community (WROC), P. O. Box 438, Perry, Georgia 31069, or Save-A-Pet, located at 430 Maynard Church Road, Forsyth, Georgia 31029. Both organizations serve the local community.

Sherri was the daughter of the late J.D. and Eugenia Gillispie Peavy and was born on September 23, 1964, in Perry. Her parents both passed away before she was born. She had a degree from Mercer University in addition to her diploma from Perry High School. At the time of the organization’s dissolution in 2017, Sherri had put in more than thirty years of service at the Warner Robins-based non-profit Hodac, Inc. At the time, she was working as a member of the Purchasing Division staff at the Georgia Department of Corrections in Forsyth, Georgia.

Since 1993, Sherri called Macon home, and during that time she developed an appreciation for the city’s rich history, distinctive architecture, and vibrant culture. She lived in a house that was over ninety years old and was a respected member of the community where she resided. She had a soft spot in her heart for her children who had four legs, and she was involved in animal rescue in a number of different capacities.

Sherri held a job with Save-A-Pet, where she was also a member of the Board of Directors. She had a deep affection and reverence for all kinds of animals, and she also enjoyed being outside in the fresh air, going on hikes, and working in the yard. Sherri was a deeply spiritual person who was also kind and caring, and she will be sorely missed.

Her companion, Deborah M. “Debbie” Vetter of Macon, her sisters Cindy Collier (Bennie, Jr.) of Perry and Lisa O’Neal (O’Malley) of Naples, Florida, as well as a large number of nieces and nephews, are the only ones who will have the opportunity to appreciate the memories they shared with Sherri.
