Preceded in death by husband Walter (Hoot), sister Bertha, brothers Harold and Gene, son Stephen and daughter Patricia. Survived by daughters Linda, Margaret and Tammy, son David, 12 grandkids, 7 great grandkids and 5 great-great grandkids.

Peg ran a boarding home on Seattle's Capitol Hill, was a cook at Arden Nursing Home, and a janitor for Fred Meyer hypermarkets. She baked hundreds of thousands of cookies for family and the many friends she met walking her dogs and shopping. She made memorable banana and coconut cream pies and pineapple desserts. Peg cooked delicious meals for family and friends, created a garden passersby admired, enjoyed camping trips with her grandkids, was an avid Mariner baseball fan, and was on a bowling team into her 80's.

Peg's family is grateful to management and staff of Chateau Pacific Memory Care Unit in Lynnwood for the compassionate care they gave Peg at the end of her life. Family and friends are invited to Peg's Celebration of Life on Sat., Feb. 23, 2013, at 2 PM at Cedar Valley Grange, 20526 52nd Ave W, Lynnwood, WA 98036.
