Peggy passed away Saturday, May 15, in Evanston, with her family by her side. Peggy was born on Dec. 8, 1934, in Bon Air, Talladega, Alabama, to E. Pratt Northcutt and Lillie Cash. She was raised by her aunt and uncle, Tom and Essie McDaniel.
She married Robert E. Roden on Dec. 8, 1952, in Birmingham, Alabama. To that union, five children were born. They later divorced, and she married Roscoe E. Doran in 1961. To that union, three children were born. They later divorced, and she married Raymond A. Walker on July 24, 1979, in Las Vegas. The couple resided in West Valley City, Utah, until Raymond’s death in 1998.
Peggy moved to Evanston, and lived out her remaining years with some of her children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Peggy worked as a cook for most of her career in Las Vegas, Salt Lake City and Evanston. She was an incredibly strong woman who raised all eight of her children, as well as many of her grandchildren.
She loved to sew, read and had an amazing rose and vegetable garden that she took much pride in. Above all, she took pride in her family
