Peggy J. Webster, 66, of Waubun, died Sunday, July 26, 2009 at her residence, under care of Hospice of the Red River Valley.

Peggy was born to Julius Sr. and Evanelle (Jackson) Webster on June 10, 1943 in Red Lake, Minn. She lived for a short time in Red Lake and White Earth before moving with her family to Minneapolis, where she spent the majority of her childhood. She finished her schooling in White Earth and later attended the Detroit Lakes Community College, where she earned her Secretarial Certificate in 1980.

Peggy accepted a position at the RTC as a receptionist, working there for a few years and later at the White Earth Clinic, in the medical coding department. Peggy loved watching television, where she was able to keep up on her politics, weather it was watching "The Countdown" with Keith Olbermann or listening to Ed Schultz on the radio. Peggy was up to date on current events. She loved spending time with her boys, Sam and Robert, and especially being able to spoil her granddaughter, Nokomis.

Peggy also enjoyed making trips back to Minneapolis, taking in the art at the Arts Institute, eating Chinese food and going on paddleboat rides along the Mississippi River.

Peggy will be remembered and missed by her two sons, Robert (Stephanie) Webster of Red Lake and Sam Webster of Waubun; as well as one, granddaughter; one brother Julius Webster Jr. of White Earth; and one sister, Myrna Smith of White Earth.

Preceding Peggy in death were her parents, one brother, two nieces and one nephew.

Private family services will be held. The David-Donehower Funeral Home in Detroit Lakes is assisting the family with arrangements.
