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.
