Peggy M. Hoogerhuis, 76, a lifelong resident of Las Vegas, N.M., passed away Sunday, Nov. 25, 2018 at Presbyterian Rust Medical Center in Rio Rancho, N.M.
She was born to Rudolpho Trujillo and Juanita Trujillo on March 27, 1942, in Las Vegas. Peggy loved cheering for her Dallas Cowboys and Denver Broncos, playing cards and scrabble, and watching her novelas.
She was one of the Robertson Cardinals' biggest supporters, and was especially committed to filming all of her grandkids' games, or recording them on the radio if she couldn't be present.
She loved to garden and take pictures of loved ones, and enjoyed her poodles and long rides out of town to visit relatives. Peggy very much loved to dance, and one of her favorite places to be was on the dance floor dressed in her new outfit and matching high heels.
Peggy's vibrant personality will be missed by the many she met and interacted with.
