JCC hosted a Celebration of Life for Peggy Kuykendall today. We are privileged to have known Peggy and have her as a part of the JCC family. She will be greatly missed, and we look forward to seeing her again one day.
“Peggy Kuykendall passed away on July 28, 2014 after a valiant fight with a long-term illness. Peggy was born in Washington, D.C. on Jan. 26, 1943. She was the daughter of Thomas and Betty Jo Linkins. As a military family, Peggy lived around the world and moved to Anchorage in the late 1950’s. She was married to Ray Pannett in 1960. They had three children and 8 grandchildren. Peggy loved to travel, do crossword puzzles, walk in the park, visit with her friends, share in activities/potlucks at church, and she was an avid reader. Her last and favorite job was working at Nine Star Education & Employment Services helping people go to work. She is preceded in death by her parents, grandson Christopher, and numerous relatives. She is survived by her sisters Maryellen Brown, Ann Gibson, & Gina Carpenter; her children Lisa Dunagan, Tommy Pannett (Bunny), & Peggy Richardson (Steve); and grandchildren Curtis, Stephen, Linda, Megan, Wendy, Amber & Sarah.”
