Peggy Louise Lemaster
September 28, 1944 ~ July 23, 2014
Peggy Louise Lemaster, 69, of Conconully, WA, passed peacefully into the loving arms of her Lord, on Wednesday, July 23, 2014, in Central Washington Hospital.
Peggy was born on September 28, 1944, in Columbus, OH to Kenneth Logsdon and Joan (Paschall) Clark. She moved with her mother and brother, Kendred, to Twisp, WA at the age of eight. Twisp is where she met and later married her high school sweetheart, Jim Lemaster. They married June 23, 1962, in Twisp. Together, they have three children, Laurel (Mark) Pritchard, Brett (Marcia) Lemaster, and Tina (Steve Tidd). Peggy was a very caring and loving mother and grandmother to Amanda, Renee, Rebecca, Connor, Ryan, Tawnee, and Logan. She cherished her great-grandchildren, Devany, Sienna, Laine, Quinn, Ty, and Wyatt.
Peggy was an accomplished seamstress, and loved to camp, garden, and dance. After raising their children, Peggy went to college and earned her degree in Nursing. She was proud of her profession and earned the respect as a caring and competent nurse working in Home Health and Hospice. Peggy retired as a nurse due to disability related to scleroderma. Peggy and Jim took a leap of faith and moved to Conconully. She always said, “there is magic in these mountains.” Together, they opened beautiful vacation rentals in Conconully, known as Deer Haven Lodges. She loved decorating each lodge and pampering the guests. Through this adventure, many lifelong friends were made. She battled related health issues for years in order to spend time with her family. In the end, she made the decision she had fought hard enough and it was time to go home. Supported and surrounded by her family, she made her journey.
Peggy is survived by her husband, Jim; and her two beloved King Charles Cavaliers, Harley and Mocha. She was preceded in death by her father, Kenneth Logsdon; and grandparents, Noble and Jenny Paschall.
