Margaret J. "Peg" Lundquist, 60, of Superior, Wis., died peacefully on Tuesday, Jan. 1, 2013 at the Solvay Hospice House in Duluth, surrounded by those that love her.
Peg was born in 1952 to Warren and Celine Peters.
She graduated from Superior Senior High School in 1970, attended the University of Wisconsin-Superior and Fergus Falls Technical School.
Peg married Paul Lundquist in 1972 and together had two girls. Peg made many friends throughout the years as her and her family lived in Fergus Falls, Minn., Beloit, Wis., Roscoe, Ill., and finally returning to Superior in 1989. Peg excelled at many jobs, ultimately retiring from Douglas County in 2005.
Peg was diagnosed with Stage III ovarian cancer in 2005 and had courageously battled this disease ever since. Throughout her ongoing treatments, Peg was able to create unforgettable memories, including the weddings of both of her daughters, the birth of each of her four grandchildren, vacations to Jamaica, Florida, New York, Las Vegas, a Caribbean cruise, and girlfriend getaways.
Peg enjoyed camping at Iron River, spending time at Simms Lake, gardening, sewing, knitting, quilting, four wheeling, snowmobiling, traveling, playing cards, and simply enjoying the company of friends and family, especially her grandchildren.
Peg was preceded in death by her mother and brother, James Peters.
She is survived by her loving husband of 40 years, Paul; two daughters Heather (Ken) Kurtz, and Becky (Cory) Whitrock both of Marshfield, Wis.; four grandchildren Mitchell, Tyler, Bennet, and Camille; one brother Ken Peters; four sisters Joyce Kronenberg, Marian Wolden, Janet Anderson, and Katie Steen; nieces, nephews and extended family, and many wonderful friends.
