Peggy's favorite activities included hunting and fishing with her husband where she only slightly trailed his deer kill record, and held the fishing record for the first, biggest & most! Peggy also enjoyed card games, bowling, golfing, but most of all spending time with her family. Peggy was a homemaker who took pride each harvest when she and a few or her other homemaker friends would help local farmers by driving beet truck.

The family would like to thank the staff at Cassia Regional Medical Center and St. Alphonsus Medical Center for their loving care of Peggy.
A great woman, we will remember her most for how she "loved that little bastard."
