Peggy Branson (Willey) was born May 8, 1928 in Grangeville Idaho; she passed away March 10, 2018. She married Alonzo (Lon) Branson May 5, 1946. He proceeded her in death in April 2016, one month prior to their 70th anniversary. They lived various places in Idaho and Washington until moving to California in 1959. In her 40’s Peggy went back to school, eventually earning a Masters Degree in Marriage and Family Counseling. They retired and moved back to Grangeville where she continued in private practice. Eventually they moved back to California, settling first in Colfax and then Auburn. Lon gave her the nickname “Scrappy” which to all who knew her was an apt description. She was a long-time member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints. She is survived by her four children, Nola (Paul) Milhoan, Morris (Lori), Reid (Kathy), Eric (Jana), 10 grandchildren and 12 great grandchildren, brother Richard (Judy); sisters, Mary Ellen (Guy) Cash and Lynda Madden.
