by: CENTRAL OREGONIAN - Peggy PuckettPeggy Arlene Puckett, a longtime resident of Prineville, passed away at her home on April 16, 2014 and went to be with the Lord. She was 66.

Peggy was born on May 6, 1947 in Prineville to parents Chet and Alta (Larkin) Newbrey. She went to Crook County High School and received her GED years later at the age of 47, which she was very proud of. She worked at several of the Crook County Schools for 25 years as a cook helper, retiring in 2003.

She loved camping trips with her family, going on vacation to Disneyland/Disneyworld, collecting vintage jewelry at any garage sale, but her true passion was a ministry of cards that she sent out weekly to church family and friends for all reasons to show her love for the person or family.

She was preceded in death by her parents.
