The incomparable Pegge A. Bollard Hunt began her earthly journey on November 25, 1928 and passed away into eternity on September 12, 2019. She was a Midwesterner from Cleveland, Ohio who journeyed west to California with her mother to join her sister, then on to Las Vegas, Nevada where she worked and cared for her mother until she passed. Pegge was secretary to the chief Engineer at the USAF Nevada Test Site and eventually Executive Secretary to the President of the Pioneer Citizens Bank in Las Vegas. She married George Hunt, and became a step mom to George’s daughter, Diana. They decided to escape Las Vegas by moving to Quichapa to settle into ranch life, which Pegge did with gusto, caring for her family, raising vegetable gardens, growing beautiful flowers and caring for dogs, cats and horses. The next move was to Kanarraville, Utah then on to Cedar City after George passed away. Pegge became a true westerner enjoying the comfort, beauty and spiritual influence of the Cedar Mountains.

Pegge was an active, loving member of the Trinity Lutheran Church. Each week for many years the alter was graced with her floral arrangements. She was a self-taught landscape painter and through her genius and attention to detail produced many fine paintings which decorated her home, the homes of friends and church. Her home was well appointed with tasteful family heirlooms steeped in history of the 1800’s and early 1900’s and were interesting conversational pieces. A few of her other favorite things were Turner Classic Movies (Tyrone Power was her first heart throb), books: especially English and American history, theater and good music.
Pegge’s greatest loss came as a child at the death of her big brother, a Colonel in the Army. He was killed while leading troops off a landing craft in the Pacific during World War II.
Her most exciting moment was standing in the winner’s circle at Churchill Downs Race Track of the Kentucky Derby fame while vicariously absorbing the haunting sounds of “My Old Kentucky Home” The Call to Post and visualizing the placing of Garland of Roses around Affirmed or Smarty Jones.
