She was blessed to have had such an amazing family and friends. Peggy was dedicated to her family and serving others. She was a registered nurse specializing in emergency nursing. She began her career in 1975 in Rochester, Minnesota before moving to San Francisco. She relocated to Boulder, Colorado in 1978 reuniting with old friends and creating a new circle of friends. She worked at St. Anthony Hospital where she met her future husband Ray in 1980. They were married in 1984. As a lifelong learner, Peggy received her degree in meeting and conference planning from Metro State in Denver and began a new career. To continue her service to others she became a volunteer Victim Advocate for the Westminster Police Department and later a volunteer Court Appointed Special Advocate for Children (CASA) for Adams and Broomfield Counties. Peggy received her Master’s Degree in Communication and Conflict Resolution from Regis University as she returned to advocacy nursing as a Patient Relations Coordinator at St. Anthony Hospital.

Memories Timeline


  1. My dearest Peg, I am heartbroken to learn of your passing. I was unaware of your struggle, and it saddens me to know that such a beautiful, wonderful person is no longer with us on this Earthly plane. You will be so deeply missed. We all, myself included, are better for knowing you and having your amazing energy and compassion around us. I still see your smiling face and bright blue eyes in my mind, the so many times we met together at St. Anthony Hospital in the ED conference room to talk through patient experiences as you bravely, quietly, lovingly, and so graciously advocated for our patients.

    Yours is a bright, shining star, always shining down and loving us. I will miss you so much. My thoughts, prayers, and love is with you and your family. Thinking of you Ray.

    Peace & Love, Beth

  2. We were saddened to hear of Peggy’s passing. She will surely be missed by all who knew her. Sympathy and prayers are with you from North Carolina. Love, Jeannie and David

  3. Dear Ray,

    I am so sad about your loss of Peg. Each time you or anyone spoke of her it was consistently in the highest regard in terms of her loving kindness, compassion, emotional stamina, resilience and excellence to strive for the best. I am grateful that you both have and also created such amazing families continuing to carry and display these same strengths as her legacy.

    We all are sending love to you – Kim Muramoto

  4. Ray and family,
    We are keeping you all in our prayers and know the loss of such an amazing wife and mother is too difficult to Express words for. We pray you all are able to find peace and know her love will always remain in your hearts. May her memory be eternal.

    Our love to you all,
    Anastasia, Pat and Alexander Hartigan

  5. Dear Ray and family,
    I was so saddened to read about Peg’s passing! She was such an amazing woman with such a great sense of humor! Her passion and caring as a nurse was always so evident when we worked together at St Anthony North ER!
    My deepest sympathy to you and your family!

  6. Ray & Family, your old Newton street neighbors were very sad to hear of
    Peggy’s passing. Our thoughts & prayers are with you all. May the Good
    Lord Bless & keep you in His Loving Care for a very long time.
    JoAnn Brachle & Family

  7. I was fortunate to work with Peg at FPA during her career in meeting planning and we had the best of times. I loved her laugh, I loved her wit and I loved her fun-loving spirit. Such a beautiful woman and such a deep loss. I am deeply sorry Ray that you have lost your life partner and soul mate and my condolences to Mike and Matt that you have lost your loving Mother.

    God Bless

  8. My deepest sympathy to Peggy’s family. She was a kind, sweet person. I enjoyed my encounters with her at St. Anthony Hospital. She always had true compassion for patients and their families. She is gone way too soon. Heaven has another sweet angel. May God wrap you in his comforting arms.

  9. My deepest sympathy to Peggy’s family. Peggy was so nice and kind and generous with compliments. I consider myself fortunate to have met her.

  10. My very sincere sympathies to the family. I had the honor of working with Peg and as everyone so eloquently stated, her passion for advocating for patients and out most vulnerable population was simply unmatched.
    What I remember most are the conversations we had about her family about everyday things –
    Gus- when you first picked him and the funny antics she shared the first few months you had him
    Matt and Mike and the excitement and glow on her face when she shared that they had proposed to Sarah and Alex,
    Ray and some activity they may have done in the weekend or a trip you were taking together.
    They were just everyday things in her life that she shared with me—-these are moments I will always remember and the expression of pure joy she had when talking about her family.
    This quote from Theodor Seuss captures my feelings
    “Sometimes you will never know the value of a moment until it becomes a memory”.
    Thank you Peg for the countless moments you shared with me that will be my memories of you and to your family for making you so obviously happy.

  11. I am still reflecting on the beautiful memorial for Peg almost a week later. Most assuredly she has heard these beautiful words: “Well Done Good and Faithful One” as God ushered His Beloved Child into the Kingdom of Heaven. I have laminated the “Advice from a Lake” and will reflect on it often. I was a Midwest gal (Wisconsin) also, and we graduated Nursing School around the same time. We both worked at St. Anthony – Central, North, and Lakewood through the years. Please know that your loving memories of her will keep her alive forever.

  12. Ray,
    I haven’t seen you or Peg for more than 30 years, however, I would occasionally think of you since we worked together in such formative years at SAC. I saw her obituary in the CO Nurse and I wanted to send you and your entire family Scott’s and my condolences. God bless you, Ray.

  13. I met Peg at Metro and the last time I saw her was in Aspen. We had dinner and she had just lost her mother. As always we had a lovely visit.
    I just googled her, only to see of her passing. Such a kind and genuine person, with a beautiful smile.
    Deepest Sympathy.
