On May 27, 2022, Margaret “Peggy” Smith joined her husband of 50 years Gary, in the presence of Jesus. After a long battle with COPD, Peggy passed away in Medford, Oregon with her daughters by her side.

Peggy was born on July 30, 1942 in Los Angeles, CA and raised in the San Francisco Bay Area, where she met William “Gary” Smith. They married July 27, 1962 in San Jose, CA.

Peggy is survived by her two daughters, Michelle Hogue of Weed and Jeanette Maddox (Tim) of Montague. She had 3 granddaughters – Ashley Bierwolf of Reno, Jenna Snodgrass of Weed, and Lexi Hogue of Weed. She had 4 great-grandchildren.

In 1983 she and Gary moved to Mt. Shasta and Siskiyou County became her home.

She was a long-time member of the First Baptist Church in Mt. Shasta. Prior to her declining health keeping her from getting out much, Peggy enjoyed spending time with her family, playing cards, golfing and especially making beautiful quilts.

Peggy was loved deeply, and will be missed.
