     Born in 1936 in Jackson, WY to George and Roma Walker. Attended Jackson Hole High School and Ricks

worked at the Coca Cola Factory in Cheyenne, WY, legal secretary, trail cook for Bar T5, USPS mail carrier,
and well known for her cake business “Peggy’s - A Piece of Cake”.

     Peggy lived her faith everyday – she was a lifelong member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints
where she served in numerous positions: Primary President, Relief Society Counselor, Young Women’s
Program, a Stake Camp Director for 16 years, and the Boy Scouting Program where she was awarded the Boy
Scout Silver Beaver Award, for her years of service to the Jackson, WY community.
Peggy loved family, adventure and traveling. While raising her family they enjoyed horseback riding, camping
and snowmobiling. After retirement, she loved Geocaching and traveling to see her
children/grandchildren/nieces and nephews. She was able to travel to Alaska, Australia, Peru and Churchill,
Manitoba Bay, Canada. She was proud of fulfilling her “Bucket List” by climbing Mt Kilimanjaro in Tanzania at the young age of
75 and visiting all the National Parks in the lower 48 states.
