Peggy was born Aug. 6, 1943, at St. Francis Hospital in Miami Beach, Fla., to Ralph Walters and Edith (Powell) Walters. She was raised by her Uncle Bucky in Hollywood, Fla., and graduated from Little Flower High School. Shortly afterward, she moved to North Dakota to be closer to her dad who was stationed at Minot Air Force Base, and she worked as a nurse's aide at Garrison Memorial Hospital. She married Jim Iglehart on April 4, 1964, and together they had nine children. Peggy's crowning achievement in life was being a mom and surrounded by a large family. She valued her faith and her family while she enjoyed food and fun. Peggy had a true spirit of joy that far outshined the difficult challenges she had to face. Peggy will always be remembered for her genuine love, her quick wit and the ability to find humor in the simple things of life.
Peggy is survived by: three daughters, JoAnn Haverluk, of Dickinson, Sue (Chip) Steckler, of Jamestown, and Jean (Scott) Graeber, of Bismarck; one daughter-in-law, Debbie Iglehart, of Mandan; and five sons, Tom (Rhonda) Iglehart, of Garrison, Vince Iglehart, of Bismarck, Mike Iglehart and Dan Iglehart, both of Garrison, and Steve (Kacie) Iglehart, of Bismarck; her precious grandchildren, Ariel, Travis, Austin, Anita, Nathaniel, Josiah, Jayden, Cody, Lexi, Ty, Garrett, Wyatt, Layne, Cheyanne, Colton Caylie, Kara, Brody and Allie Jo; and two great-grandchildren, Brighton and Elaida.
She was preceded in death by: her oldest son, Joe; two infants; her parents; and her Uncle Bucky.
