Peggy Rodgers, 68, of Columbus, passed away peacefully on May 20 surrounded by loved ones.
Peggy was born on Sept. 29, 1953 to Kermit and Evelyn (Bahner) Brune in Columbus. She was a 1972 graduate of Columbus High School. On Aug. 10, 1974, Peggy married Daniel “Danny” Rodgers. Together they enjoyed 31 years of marriage, spending their time traveling, camping, boating, and being with friends and family. They also loved getting together at the camp house, whether it was for hunting season, special occasions, parties, or just because, there were always great times to be had at “The 88”. One of Peggy’s most favorite pastimes was gambling with friends and their yearly trips to Las Vegas.
Peggy, an independent personality, was an extremely hard worker. She made many friends and acquaintances at the local Columbus businesses in which she was employed.
Peggy loved big and with all her heart but let’s face it, if you knew her, you couldn’t dismiss her outspoken, opinionated, tell you like it is personality, something said to be handed down directly from her mother, Evelyn. For most of us, that was our favorite trait of Peggy, unless of course you were on the receiving end.
Peggy is preceded in death by her husband, Danny; parents, Kermit and Evelyn Brune; and best friend, Diane Skutca.
She is survived by her brother, Mark Brune and wife, Sherri, of Columbus; sister in-law, Susan Rogers and husband, Ronnie; brother in-law Donald Rodgers and wife, Carol; nieces, Kehrer Brune, Kristy Bissey, and Tracy Kennedy; nephews, Bryan Brune, Nathan Rodgers, Jacob Rodgers, and Justin Rodgers; great-nieces and nephews; numerous friends; and her beloved dog, Cricket.
