Peggy Sue Miller, 58 passed away peacefully at home in Moorhead MN, on Friday March 8, 2019. Following complications from an unexpected illness, surround by her family.
She was the first of three children born to Alfred and Judith (Simonson) Miller. She was born in Hankinson ND, at St. Gerard’s Hospital on July 9th, 1960. Baptized March 5th, 1961 and confirmed at Immanuel Lutheran Church in Hankinson. She attended and graduated in 1978 from Hankinson Public School. After graduation she went on to further her education and graduate with an associate degree in Graphic Arts, from the State College of Science in Wahpeton, ND. But that wasn't enough for Peg, she moved to Moorhead MN where she made her home, and worked her way through College receiving a Bachelor of Science degree in Mass Communications from Moorhead State University in May of 1995.
Peg worked various jobs through college, before taking a permanent position at the Fargo Forum in the Creative Department where she was employed for 23 years until her health issues kept her from continuing. She loved spending time at home in her garden then canning what she raised especially those pickles which she ended up giving away to friends that loved them, raised Blue Mason Bees, grew grapes to make wine but the birds seem to enjoy them more, loved butterflies, even planted milkweed for them. She had a love for animals especially her little black dog Chewy, (her little man about town). Then there were those visors she had on in every color and shade you could imagine.
