Peggy Ann Linn

August 16, 1943 - February 03, 2013


During the early morning hours of Sunday February 3, 2013, while sleeping in her bed, Peggy Linn went home to be with the Lord. She was 69.

Peggy was born August 16, 1943 in Anacortes, WA to Earl and Peggy Linn. The family moved to Bellingham soon after. She lived the majority of her life in Whatcom County.

A hard worker from an early age, she valued her many opportunities with employment, including being a housewife and mother, meter maid, hair dresser, longshoreman, and a crew member for Washington State Ferries. By obtaining her Merchant Marine certificate, she was able to work as a cook on ships for Arco and Crowley Intl.

In her later years, she thrived on her volunteer work. She cut inmates hair in Canada through the B.C. Prison ministries, ministered to the elderly in convalescent homes with her dog Bear, and volunteered as a tour guide in Ferndale at the Hovander Homestead.

Of all her volunteering, her passion was her work in Mexico where, over the years, she devoted her love and time to providing basic needs to the Tarahumara Indians.

Peggy is survived by daughter Teri, son Rob, foster daughter Amanda, sisters Sherry and Tammy, brother Earl, 8 grandchildren, 3 foster grandchildren, 3 great-grandchildren, 8 nieces and nephews, several great nieces and nephews, and her beloved Pomeranians. She will be deeply missed.

  1. My Sympathies to all of Aunt Peggy’s family and friends. I did not get to see her very much upon growing up, but as my sister Wendy said I too remember playing with my cousins at Aunt Peggy;s house. I also seem to remember watching my older sister try to ride a motorcycle with cousin Robbie. I will never forget all the good times we had. May God’s peace be with all who knew Aunt Peggy.

    Please accept my sympathy to the loving Daughter,Son and all the loving Children,Family & Friends in the very painful loss of your dearly loved Peggy Ann. She lived a full life & will be long-remembered by all those who knew,respected & loved her. Hopefully you will be comforted by the Bible Verses that follow: Rev21:4-5 “AND HE WILL WIPE OUT EVERY TEAR FROM THEIR EYES AND DEATH WILL BE NO MORE, THE FORMER THINGS HAVE PASSED AWAY”

  3. Was saddened to hear of Peggy’s passing. I haven’t seen her for several years, I always enjoyed her. I’ve known her since childhood; both in school; grade school, Fairhaven and Bellingham High. Her mom, sisters, and brother also picked strawberries in the same field. She was a fun, interesting, giving person who made the world a better place. She will be missed by her family, friends and those who knew her. RIP Peggy.

  4. Diane, I have super memories also of our families’ times together. Wow, it was a lifetime ago. I remember being totally amazed when you and Peg drove to California after you graduated from high school. I thought the two of you were so brave. To this day, I am still reluctant to drive more than a few miles from home — and that’s with the GPS thing, too.
    I’m glad I you wrote. Incidentally, can you let Rochelle know about Peggy Ann’s death? I cannot find her email address.

    Thank you. I hope you’re doing well.

    Love, Sherry

  5. Teri, Aunt Tammy, Michelle and all those who knew and loved Aunt Peggy best: My prayers are with you and your loved ones as you walk through this sad time of loss. May you find comfort in Him, the God of all Creation, who alone can help us make sense of life and death; joy and grief, laughter and mourning. I know these times are difficult. Our prayers will be lifting you up and I hope you find strength in God during this difficult time. Wish I could be there to give you a hug and wipe away your tears!
