Peggie Duggan

Peggie Margaret Josephine Nicole Duggan, 60, died May 15, 2015, in Federal Way, Wash. She was born on March 18, 1955, in Santa Monica, Calif., to Julie Crommelin Duggan and Edward Duggan. She grew up in Malibu and Santa Monica, eventually settling in the Seattle area.

Peggie held a master's degree in strategic intelligence and served in emergency services with the state of Washington.

She was fierce in her beliefs, loyal to a fault, and a staunch Republican who walked her talk. She recently returned to her Roman Catholic faith, and was a parishioner at St. Theresa's in Federal Way.

Peggie was a wry observer and a delightful writer, having written a very personal yet versatile blog: "Chasing Rabbit Holes." She also wrote a book, "And Then There was Laughter." Among her passions was rescuing greyhounds.

She is survived by her sister, Kathleen Diamond, Lewisburg, Tenn., her dog, Ella, her cat, Elby, and many friends who adored her.

I agree with everything that has been said. Just wanted to add she was my good friend for over 30 years. I miss her greatly but I know she can still listen to me as she did for 30 years. Love you Peggie!

It is with sadness that I let you all know that
Peggie Duggan has passed Friday May 15th 2015.

Peggie was an amazing and versatile writer, fierce patriot and brilliant scholar, having recently completed her Masters in Strategic Intelligence.

She was in failing health due to chronic COPD.
I have often recommended that you read her Blog posts in Wordpress.
Peggie's Blog is called Chasing Rabbit Holes. It's flu of joy, creativity, and insight; and will give you a view into a conservative soul with beautiful candor.

She was the ultimate in
Questioning with boldness,
Holding to the Truth,
and speaking without fear.

She stormed Heaven today.
No doubt she is dancing, singing at the top of her spirit-lungs, and is already in charge of something.

We miss you Peggie.

I only knew Peggie because I work at the veterinary clinic she brouhht her beloved pets to. I always looked forward to seeing her, and enjoyed her humor and entertaining stories. I miss her and am sorry for this world missing her light that shone so bright. I wish I could have known her better.

Peggie was a pure joy! It was a privilege to know her and call her friend. She is already sorely missed.

She was a joy to know and love. Peggie was intelligent and witty but mainly, she truly was a loving and loyal friend. Generous and loving. My heart is broken at her loss. Her faith in God was enormous and she always "just knew" something good was in store. A true light has gone from this earth but I know her precious self is in heaven, avid with curiosity, seeing those she loves who have gone before, and filled with incredible joy.
