September 25, 1938- October 16, 2018
Peggy Lee, 80, passed away at Harrison Hospital in Bremerton on October 16, 2018.
She was born September 25, 1938, in Everett, WA to Jack and Rachel Germeau. Granddaughter of Hubertine and Peter Germeau who emigrated from Europe in the early 1900s and settled in Eaglemont, WA where Peggy was raised on a farm. Many relatives still live there.
After graduating from Port Townsend High School in 1956, she went on to graduate from Washington State University in 1960. She married Alfred E Lee in 1959. During their 29-year marriage they restored a Victorian home in uptown Port Townsend where they raised three children.
Arts and crafts were her passion. She enjoyed knitting, reading, gardening, dancing, being the family historian and dabbling in astrology. She was a 25-year member of the Five Fingers gift shop and loved selling her creations at street fairs and farmers markets.
Peggy is survived by children Teresa Lee, Todd Lee (wife Angela), Kelly Lee; Brother Richard Germeau (wife Linda), Sister Gerri Fitzer (husband Tom); Granddaughters Lajan Lee and Megan Lee; and numerous nephews. She was preceded in death by her brother Jack Germeau Jr.
Words can’t express how deeply she will be missed by all who knew her.
Her wishes were for a small private memorial will be announced at a later date.
