Obituary for Peggy Clark

Peggy  Clark
Peggy Dell Clark, 75
On January 18, 2018, we watched a golden heart stop beating, after 10 long days of recovering in the hospital from a car accident that proved tougher than her.
Peggy Dell Cumin was born August 1, 1942 in Big Timber, Montana. She began her life in Rapilje, Montana, daughter to Casey and Ester Cumin. When World War 2 broke out, mom lived with her grandmother while her mother went to Berlin with her husband. After the war, the marriage failed and Ester left, mom and Cal stayed at the ranch a short time, forming a bond that will forever be. Cal left first, leaving mom lonely, but she had her grandmother, a person who was very special to her. A few months later, she left for town too, and went to work at the Kit Kat Café.
Navashio’s 10¢ hamburger shop must have been the hot spot for kids back then because that is where a crazy, little country boy from Shepherd first saw her. Then, by the grace of God, he happened into the Kit Kat Café, and saw her again… they married June 21, 1960.
From a quiet, insecure, girl, mom blossomed in dad’s love and together any venture they began was full of gusto! Together they worked on a ranch in Rygate, logged in the mountains of White Sulphur, worked the sugar beet campaign, drove semis, dump trucks, and worked construction for various companies, and raced snowmobiles- you name it, they did it, and always with a passion.
Mom’s roots were always in deep in country living and raising animals. Her pigs were “the best therapist money could buy!” From her old milk cow, Cocoa, to the heard up on the hillside now, her pride, peace, and joy was the happiness she received from going out and to ‘cake’ her cows. She recently had told dad, “the sheep go before the cows!”
She was a wonderful wife, mother, grandmother/mombe, and friend. As well as the ‘other mother’ to the many kids she babysat, she even had one that would come down with ‘Peggy-itious’ and skip school to come spend the day with her. I’m not going to lie, she made us kids tow the line, but is seemed to build a respect and love for her that was amazing. She was not a chatty lady, she said what she had to say, and that was it. Done.
She loved us all just like a mama bear, and if you were her friend, you know she was loyal and true. I have always said she was my best friend. She was dads partner in a life that many thought crazy, but together, they raised us in a home that we always knew we could come back to if life got too hard or we just needed the comfort of mom.
Lord please help us, our helper- no matter the task, our guide through all of life’s problems, our cheerleader, and our boss, is gone. Oh, mama, we are sure going to miss you!
She is survived by her husband, John, brother, Cal, and half-brothers, Wade (Peggy), Ty, Cole, and Russ (Ruthie). Children, Bobbi (John), Billee (Mainard), and Jared. Grandchildren, Keith (Brook), Savannah, Steena Marie, and Samantha, and Great grandchildren, Jake, Hayden, and Skylar, and longtime friend, Leona.
Memorial service will be held Friday, January 26, 2018, at 11am in Billings at East Gate Wesleyan Church, 625 Mattson Ln.
