Later in life then moved to Otis, Kansas through her adolescence and graduated from Otis High School. Shortly thereafter she had an encounter with a police officer in Great Bend, Kansas. Not at first knowing that, that police officer, Ray Koehn would be the future love of her life. After wedding, the two lived in several areas in the Midwest such as Kansas, Nebraska, Iowa, and Missouri. Peggy and Ray enjoyed retirement at Pomme De Terre lake for 16 years before moving and settling in for the full-blown lake life at the Lake of the Ozarks. Peggy made a profession of faith and last attended Ozark Chapel United Methodist Church in Laurie, Missouri and was a faithful believer in Christ. In her younger days she loved motorcycling with her husband Ray and was named “Evel Knievel” for many reasons. They were Nascar’s #1 fans. Especially rooting for Jeff Gordon, Jimmy Johnson, and Dale Earnhart Jr. She knew everyone’s business and all the gossip with ALL the drivers, even about their wives and children. As she studied, read, and watched everything there was if it had to do with Nascar. And her conversation piece while talking with most everyone she ran into was of course Nascar related. Whether you wanted to hear it or not. She also loved great food, boating, shopping, dancing, and was always the life of the party when she had the chance to be. She lived the lake life to the fullest, especially on her Sea-Doo. But mostly she loved spending time any chance she had with her grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. They were all so loved by her. She was a loving and a caring neighbor and friend. We celebrate her life and her accomplishments and will treasure the many memories she created for her family and friends. Arrangements are under the direction of Allee-Holman-Howe Funeral Home, Camdenton, Missouri.
