Peggy “Priss” (Shiflett) McDougall

Wenatchee, WA

Priss was born on July 9, 1951, to Tom and Ruby Shiflett. Growing up, she spent her days horseback riding and playing with siblings and cousins on the Pinedale Ranch. After giving birth to a daughter, Danielle Shiflett Jack, she attended Wenatchee Valley College, earning a degree as a LNP. The next 30 years she worked at Wenatchee Valley Medical Center, helping patients. Most of her career was in the walk-in clinic, but she spent time in many other departments throughout the clinic. Many lifelong friendships began at the clinic. During that time, Priss married Scott McDougall and they were married for several years. As a young woman, she loved downhill skiing, and then took up cross-country skiing, never turned down a racquetball game, and enjoyed daily walks. After work and on the weekend, she spent many hours at the Keane Ranch riding horses, rounding up cattle and helping on the ranch. Branding day at the Keane Ranch was one of her favorite days of the year. Her job was to vaccinate all of the calves; a friend or two always came along to help. Many holidays and vacations were spent with Steve, Jane and their family. Priss was a very active person and loved being out in the open country; if it was on her horse that was even better. A unique bond was formed between Priss and her horse, often referring to him as her therapy. The many horseback rides into the high county with great friends held a special place in her heart. On January 10, 2014, Priss took her ride to big sky.

She is survived by a daughter, Danielle Shiflett Jack; father, Tom Shiflett; brother, Steven Shiflett and sister-in-law, Jane Shiflett; brother, Stanton “Lucky” Shiflett and sister-in-law, Vi Shiflett; sister, Deborah Ercanbrack; nieces and nephews, Stephanie Matthews, Seth Shiflett, Shannon Merz, Thomas Ercanbrack, Michael Shiflett, Will Shiflett and Christina Fry; and great-nieces and nephews, Garett, Cash, Hunter, Haylee, Paisley and Kristen. Preceding Priss in death were her mother, Ruby Shiflett; and brother, Butch Shiflett.

A Graveside Service will be held at Stemilt Hill Cemetery at 11:00 a.m. Wednesday, January 15, 2014, with a reception to follow at the Stemilt Hill Grange. At her request, donations may be made to the Wenatchee Valley Humane Society. Arrangements by Telford’s Chapel of the Valley, East Wenatchee.
