Peggy Yount passed away on Saturday, September 22, 2012, four days before her 85th birthday, at Close to Home Hospice of natural causes.

Peggy Yount was born on September 26, 1927 in Susanville, California the third daughter of Harry and Melba (Baker) Montgomery. She was raised and educated in Elmira, Idaho. After a two week courtship she married her soul mate Bert P. Yount on April 28, 1947. They moved to Gillette in the early 1970's. Peggy cooked at Campbell County High School; she had fond memories of cooking for the football players at the Fall Football Camp in Story. Peggy spent much of her time taking great pride in making homemade meals from scratch while employed at the Campbell County Children's Center. She was everyone's "Granny". After many years people still comment about what a wonderful cook she was.

When not cooking at the Children's Center she was cooking for her family. Peggy was always very involved and supportive of her family. She was available for them day or night. Peggy was also a magnificent seamstress and also enjoyed bowling (secretary of her league), crocheting and playing solitaire.

Peggy is survived by her children: Terri (Dean) Humphries and Toni (Brad) Klein; grandchildren: Toyja (Doug) Rigdon, Mindy (Jerry) Brincefield, Paula (Ruben) Abril, Jamie Jenkins (Jerome Ramsey); great-grandchildren: Matthew, Jessica, Daniel, Ty, Dillon, Ruben, Christopher, Adacia, Rylee, Kayden, and Angel; sisters: Lea Newcomb, Nedra (Jim) Halsted, and Jerry (Wayne) Wiltse; and special friend, Linda (Jerry) Gossage, and many other relatives and friends.

She was preceded in death by the love of her life and husband of 59 years, Bert P. Yount, her parents and two sisters.
