For Peggy, family was the most valued treasure in her life….closely followed by friends, neighbors and “fellow partners in crime”, you know who you are! Each child, grand-child and great-grandchild held a special place in her heart where she stored precious memories of antics and special moments tied to each loved one.

She took special delight in hosting annual family & friends gatherings around the Holiday’s, the Moen Family Wilderness Weekends, as Co-Host of the Annual Labor Day Devil’s Lake Luebner Campout for over 40 years, summer camping in Solon Springs (aka: Lucius Luebner), Superior East High School Class of 1953 Reunions, and on and on….

Grandma spaghetti and meatballs was always a staple of every event...regardless of the occasion. She championed every child's dream breakfast…..of ice-cream cones as a well-rounded meal: Dairy, sugar and cereal.

We continually marveled at her uncanny ability to key in on an individual's unique attributes and assign an appropriate nic-name highlighting same. When assigned a nic-name…..it was carried on with pride and followed you throughout your lifetime….whether you wanted it to or not!!

Peggy was known for singing out a childhood song or catchy jingle, promptly followed by an appropriately silly joke to match any and all occasions.

Her days revolved around time with friends and her church and were filled to the brim with activities ranging from water aerobics, luncheons, bike rides on her “trike”, card club, swimming at Grandma’s pool (Parkway Pool), tourist trips with her “Vagabond Club” and support of local community events and projects.

Peggy grew-up in South Range and later moved to Superior, Wisconsin along with her 3 older sisters and younger brother. She was a 1953 graduate from Superior East High School and graduated from St. Scholastica College of Nursing in Duluth, Minnesota in 1957. A long and stellar career in nursing and teaching inspired many to follow in her footsteps.

She married her high school sweetheart, James Everett Moen, on February 15th, 1958 and they remained happily married until Jim’s death in 2000. Five healthy children quickly followed and their lives immediately moved into fast forward.

Whether she was known to you as…. Mom, Grandma, Greema, Great-grandma, Aunty Peg, Panty Egg, or Peggy she has left us all with a lifetime of memories that will be carried on in our hearts and forever cherished.

The service will be live-streamed via the Molthen-Bell Facebook page starting just before 11 AM on Saturday, November 14.

You don’t know me but 36 years ago I entered a nursing program and the lovely Peggy Moen touched my life for a season and that season has lasted my whole life. I remember her as always smiling and laughing and she would not allow us to take ourselves too seriously. She left us with great quotes like “play as hard as you work” and “nurses are born, not made”. She shaped my future! I remember few teachers in my life the way I remember
Peggy. She will be thought of with warm affection for years to come. God bless you with strength and peace in your loss.

Thank you for reaching out, Kim. Just as she instilled the love of nursing and caring for others in you and the countless students she encountered over the years, she inspired multiple grandchildren (myself included) to pursue nursing as a career. She had such an uncanny ability to relate to every person she met on a personal level, and it is so incredibly touching to hear of your fond memories of our wonderful matriarch all these years later. Thank you for the reminder that our grandma Peggy impacted so many throughout her lifetime, so many of whom we've never even had the pleasure to meet. God bless you, and thank you for carrying on Peggy's love of nursing with you. Leslie
