Peggy Lou Westerlund | Obituary

On Sunday, July 4, 2021, Peggy Lou Westerlund, 89, passed away peacefully at her home in Snoqualmie, WA.

Peggy was born in Algona, WA and grew up in the Snoqualmie Valley where she met her beloved husband, Don. They were married for 35 years and raised six wonderful children, 4 boys and 2 girls. Peggy enjoyed staying close to home, yet still enjoying life with simple pleasures like planning holiday celebrations and vacations with family, spending happy hour with close friends at El Caporal, and organizing class reunions. Her favorite pass time was spending time at Snoqualmie Casino, winning big from time to time, and enjoying a good meal at one of the conveniently located restaurants in the casino. She was the rock of her family and endured many family tragedies, but steadfastly pulled through and continued to be available to the rest of the growing family. She had an accepting heart for everyone in all types of situations and offered her home to those in need.

Peggy was predeceased by her husband, Don, parents Henry Leon “Lee” Riley and Vera, sisters, Judy, Sharon and Shirley, sons Timothy “Tim”, James “Jim” and Donald “Don”, and daughter, Bonnie Jo. She is survived by her sister, Bonnie, Son, Larry and daughter, Mari Lou, and many nieces, nephews and grand children. She will be loved forever.

There will be a small graveside service to be held Saturday, July 31, 2021 at 2:00PM at the Mount Si Cemetery.

A celebration of life will be held Sunday, August 15th , 2021 at 2:00PM at North Fork Farms together with her son Donald “Don” Alan who passed away earlier this year from a head trauma.
