September 26, 1939 ‒ March 03, 2020

Delaware, Ohio

Peggy (Broyles) Hynek, age 80 of Delaware, OH, passed away Tuesday, March 3, 2020, in Delaware. She was born September 26, 1939 in Hinton, WV to the late Lamar and Arville (Davis) Broyles.

Left to cherish Peggy’s memory are her husband of 60 years, James Hynek; daughters: Lynn (Jeff) Hill, and Lori (Don) Bentley; grandchildren: James (Niki) Bentley, Tony (Sophie Duong) Bentley, Joseph (Kate) Hill, Tabitha (Jeremy) Kush, and Katie (Jeff) Wells; great-grandchildren: Lilyth, Violet, Samwise, Oliver, Madison, Tony, and Lily; and many other relatives and friends.

Peggy was a registered nurse, having retired from Grady Memorial Hospital in 2005 after more than 20 years of dedicated service. She was very proud to have returned to school as an adult to earn her nursing degree. Peggy was a member of the Kilbourne United Methodist Church, the Ochlockonee Bay United Methodist Church, and the Women’s Methodist Club in Panacea, FL. She enjoyed sewing, knitting, quilting, cooking, dining out, and traveling with her husband, Jim. One of her favorite trips was a cross-country trip on Jim’s motorcycle.

Peggy collected Longabarger baskets, and was a hoarder of sewing and knitting supplies. She was a talented seamstress who made many of her grandchildren’s clothing, and beautifully created her daughter’s bridesmaids’ dresses. Most of all, Peggy enjoyed spending time with her family.

In addition to her parents, Peggy was preceded in death by her grandson, Jeremy Fish, and her sister, Barbara Pultz.

The family will receive friends Sunday, March 8, 2020 from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. at Kilbourne United Methodist, 5591 St. Rt. 521, Kilbourne, OH. A memorial service will immediately follow at 3:00 p.m. at the church.

Donations in Peggy’s memory may be made to the Kilbourne United Methodist Church.

  • Jim and family,
    I am so deeply sorry for your loss. Peg was an amazing woman and I am a better person for having known her. She was a “fighter” every step of the way. She did not want to leave her precious family. She loved each and every one of you more than anything in the world. There is a special place in heaven for her.

  • I am very sorry for your loss. I never met her or you, but my son, Thomas Dunn, thought so much of you both. Losing someone you love and have spent your life for is so painful. I pray she is in heaven greeted by loved ones including my son.

  • Jim and Family
    So very sorry to hear of Peggy’s passing and it is certainly our loss but heavens gain. She was such a sweetheart and so much a part of my teen age years when I used to visit them quite often in Staunton Va. Barbie and I were the same age and Peggy was the “little sister” but she never was an aggravation like most little sisters. Then she grew into a fine lady and will certainly leave her footprints on a lot of lives that she has had contact with in her life. Make God heal your broken hearts and keep your memories of Peggy a part of your lives. Prayer, love and hugs for her beautiful family……..
