Peggy M. Johnson paid obit photo

October 15, 1932 - November 11, 2021

Peggy was born in Enterprise, Oregon, to Millie and Spencer Mastrude. She attended La Grande High School, where she met the love of her life, Larry, with whom she would marry and raise their three children: Rob, Steve and Dave. When her sons grew up, she found new love with her dogs, Kelsi, Krisie and most recently, little Josie. Peggy is survived by Larry, her husband of 61 years; siblings Joe, Tammy and Tom; her three sons; nine grandchildren; and four great-grandchildren.

Peggy was adored by all who knew her. She lived without judgment of others and sought to make everyone around her feel warm and at home. Peggy was quick-witted and generous with her smile and laughter. Her beautiful spirit and constant joy is our greatest loss.

Her greatest love was her grandchildren, and there was no better way to showcase the joy they brought her than by gathering together during holidays and other occasions. Each grandchild has memories that they will carry with them forever, from tea parties and days spent at the hot springs to spending time with her in “Peggy’s Flower Patch” where she passed on her many talents.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests you consider making a donation to the American Cancer Society, 7325 W. Deschutes Ave., Suite A, Kennewick, WA 99336.
