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.

    My sympathy to the family. I never met Aunt Peggy Ann, but I love her brother, my grandfather, and I am sorry for the pain and loss that death brings. I am glad Aunt Peggy loved the outdoors. That seems to be a family characteristic and I am glad to have inherited that! Family is forever.

  4. I’m so sorry to hear about Peggy’s passing. Although I haven’t seen Peggy for quite sometime, I have thought of her many times. Peggy was always such a fun loving person, and I will never forget her bright spirit and possitive Attitude. We have lots of fond memories to reflect upon. My sympathy goes out to her family and friends.

  5. I am sad about her passing. I will never forget her. I will always remember her smile and her voice. My children and I will never forget the fun times we had with her. Enjoyed the BBQs at her home with her two dogs. I have pictures, to remember her. She’s with Jesus now. I’m so happy to know that she’s in heaven, breathing in the Glory of God. How exciting it must be to see Jesus Christ!! This is how I see it….Peggy is on a eternal vacation, and we will see her again! I love you, Peggy!!!!
