Mary L. (Peggy) Medaris
July 16, 1921 - May 27, 2014
Wow - what a life Peggy had, growing up on Indian Reservations in Montana, working for the Army as a dental assistant, teaching dental assisting in Orange County then moving to Tahoe for the past 20 years. We just marvel at the things she lived to experience, but, at almost 93 she left us behind to be with the Lord. She waits for all of us there who will call upon the name of Jesus and be saved.
Her brother James Medaris survives Peggy along with her three daughters Phyllis Adair, Erin Phillips and Trish Hall (Steve). Peggy has four local grandchildren including Celeste Eckerman (Chris McKean), Russell Grant (Mikayla), Karen Grant Bailey (Doug), and Steven Grant. Grandchildren living elsewhere include Mike DiMario (Cindie), Matthew Eckerman and Tessa Eckerman. Several great grandchildren, nieces and nephews also survive Peggy. Family and best friends will always remember her.
At Peggy’s request there was no memorial service, but we did get together for a “family dinner”.
