Obituary: Sorensen, Margaret “Peggy”

SORENSEN, Margaret “Peggy” (Age 85) Our beloved mother and grandmother passed peacefully into God’s arms February 10th, 2014 with her son at her side.

Born March 13th, 1928, Peggy grew up in the peaceful surroundings of Cashmere, WA.

Peggy went on to graduate from Washington State College with a degree in police science.

Soon after, she married James Sorensen and had two children.

Working and raising her family, Peggy went on to get her masters in education and taught for several years before retiring.

Jim and Peg enjoyed many happy years before he passed in 1989.

Our momma Peggy was an integral part of our lives, involved in every aspect.

She was the toughest woman we have ever known.

She fought more physical challenges than anyone should have and triumphed!

She will live in our hearts forever.

Love you g-ma!

Survivors include daughter Janet Graves (Kevin), son Bradley Sorensen (Penny), grandchildren include Melissa Graves-Tunkara (Saibo), Carly Sorensen, Sam Graves (Laura), and Katie Graves.

Great grandchildren include Eya, Malik, and Isaac Tunkara.

Donations in her name may be made to Hospice House of Spokane or the Spokane Humane Society.

A heartfelt thank you to the wonderful staff at Providence Holy Family for the excellent care they provided for mom and her family.

A celebration of life for Peggy will be held at a later date.
