The problem with your peace lilies may be due to overwatering or, perhaps, to being exposed to a cold environment. Another possibility is a fungus or blight, which would require treatment with some type of fungicide. You may want to take one of the blackened leaves to a local nursery or extension service for help in determining the best remedy.
