Pearle "Pegi" L. Edmonds

Pearle “Pegi” L. Edmonds, 89, passed away peacefully March 1, 2008, at E. Dene Moore Care Center in Rifle.

She was born May 25, 1918, in Chicod Township, Pitt County, N. C., to Samuel L. and Fannie May (Hunnings) Lupton.

A longtime resident of both Denver and Las Vegas, Pegi lived a full and interesting life. She met her husband Ed during World War II, drove across the country by herself to California, and lived in the Hollywood Hills with her four sisters and their children in a home rented from the film actor Harold Lloyd until the end of the war.

During her lifetime, Pegi was a sales clerk, a cosmetologist and beauty shop owner, a real estate agent, a dance instructor, a social activities director and a Red Cross and hospital volunteer. She was active in the Lutheran church, loved music and was a great storyteller, conversationalist, and a friend to many. She moved to Rifle in 2006 to be near family members.

Pegi is survived by many nephews, nieces and friends.

Pegi was preceded in death by her husband; son Larry Edmonds; and six siblings.

Funeral arrangements are being made by Rifle Funeral Home, and interment will be in Fort Logan Cemetery in Denver.
