Obituary: Peggy Alice Williams Feb. 12, 1947 – June 6, 2023

Peggy Alice Williams was called to Heaven June 6, 2023 at the age of 76.

A New Mexican native; born February 12, 1947 in Taos to Paul and Louise Iko. She had two brothers, William and Robert, and one sister, Laurie. 

As a child she flourished in the Taos beauty and arts.  She excelled in school and in her twenties took employment with the United Nations as a medical records administrator.  This opportunity afforded her not only the ability to help people and further her education, but also to live a life of adventure; visiting many beautiful places across all seven countries of Central America.

Peggy was a free spirit with an intelligent mind, infectious laugh, and desire to serve. She met her husband, Frederick, at a church dance and they married a short 3 weeks later on February 19, 1977.  Together, they spent the next 41 years building a family and making memories.

In 1988, she came home to New Mexico, settling in Los Alamos where she continued to be a part of the medical community.  Peggy was an accomplished pianist/organist and she would often accompany the church choir on Sundays.  She enjoyed creating, be it cross-stitch, sewing, cooking, gardening, or puzzles; her hands always busy or holding a book.  She even built model doll houses complete with functioning electricity. She loved the outdoors, and was an animal lover through and through.

A very strong woman, Peggy faced challenges head on with a positive attitude and a joke here and there. She was a beloved wife, mother, and friend.  She will be missed.

Funeral services will be held at the Los Alamos LDS church, Friday, June 16, at 5pm.
