Obituary

Margaret (Peggy) Bellinger Johnson Schultz passed away at her home in Bluffton, SC, on the Maye River, surrounded by her loving family on October 9, 2017 after a long courageous battle with cancer. Peggy was born in Ridgeland, SC on December 10, 1938 to Nonie Pinckney Colonna Johnson and the late John B. Johnson and was a resident of both Atlanta, GA and Bluffton, SC.
Peggy was a loving devoted wife, mother, daughter, sister and grandmother. She was a member of the Cathedral of Christ the King in Atlanta, GA and Saint Gregory the Great Catholic Church in Bluffton, SC.
Peggy traveled extensively nationally and internationally with her husband. She was an exceptional care taker to her friends, family and loved ones. She was affectionately known as ‘Cotton’ by her grandchildren who she adored. Her favorite activities were shopping and in her earlier years you would see her around Bluffton on her pink bike always looking fashionable. She was an avid animal lover, especially her beloved miniature schnauzer, Queen.
