The Daily Herald - - OBITUARIES AND MEMORIALS -

Peggy Josephine Sher­man passed away peace­fully with her lov­ing fam­ily by her side. She was 87 years of age and is fi­nally re­united with her Lover. They are hav­ing the time of their life up in heaven. She was born on March 17, 1929 to Dorothy and Al­bert Voss in Lis­bon, North Dakota.

Peggy spent her younger years grow­ing up in the Everett area and north­ern Cal­i­for­nia. While vis­it­ing her girl­friend at The Dutch Bak­ery, Peggy met the love of her life. She al­ways said “in walked this big tall hand­some hunk, Hank Sher­man .” Peggy and Hank’s first date was with their best friends, Howard and Laferne Lian, golf­ing at Cedar­crest Golf Course. They were mar­ried for 64 years. 56 of those won­der­ful years were spent in the home they built to­gether in Marysville, Wash. rais­ing their four chil­dren.

Peggy was a lov­ing stay-ath­ome mother to four chil­dren for many years. As the kids grew older she went to work for the Marysville School District where she was the cook for many stu­dents and teach­ers at sev­eral schools, and boy did they love her cin­na­mon rolls. She was very proud of her job and that she was able to buy a swim­ming pool for the fam­ily with the money she earned. The pool was great fun for fam­ily gath­er­ings, their friends and es­pe­cially the grand kids. Af­ter she and Hank re­tired they opened P&H Nurs­ery at their home in Marysville. They were a nat­u­ral at grow­ing beau­ti­ful flow­ers and plant­ing pots for all their cus­tomers, friends and fam­ily.

Camp­ing was a fa­vorite past time when the kids were younger. The fam­ily camped all over the PNW and Canada, in­clud­ing fa­vorite spots such as Lake Okano gan, B.C ., Lake Per­ri­gan and Honey­man State Park in Ore­gon. Peggy and Hank loved to travel up and down the west coast, Hawaii and went on sev­eral cruises to the Panama Canal, Alaska and the Caribbean. Peggy and Hank were Husky sea­son ticket hold­ers for 43 years. They loved tak­ing their kids and grand­kids to the game, tail­gat­ing with friends and fam­ily or trav­el­ing to many away games in­clud­ing two Rose­bowl’s.
