Peggy Lee Agee Hansen, 77, a resident of Jerome County, passed away on Thursday, November 3rd, 2022.
Peggy was born February 5th, 1945, in Elko Nevada, to her loving parents William Lester Agee and Dorothy Pearl Bricker Agee. Peggy was the baby of 5 children. She spent her youth growing up with her 2 brothers Varl and Dize and her 2 sisters Sally and Teddy, on the family V4 Ranch. Her grade school years were spent on the ranch attending school in the one room cabin with her siblings and cousins. Peggy continued school on the ranch until age 8, when she then began attending school in Wells Nevada and eventually graduated from in 1963. During her high school years, Lester taught Peggy the value of hard work and she quickly became her dad’s right-hand man on the Ranch.
From Peggy’s first union, came her 3 daughters: Peggy Sue, Polly, and Penny. This rowdy bunch of girls became known to family and friends as the 4 P’s. She raised her daughters as a single mother until 1979. It was then that Peggy met her soulmate, Randy Duane Hansen. Peggy and Randy’s love story began with the one of our family’s best told story’s. When Randy told Peggy his birthday was also February 5th, he had to show his driver’s license to prove this wasn’t some crazy pick-up line. Randy spent the next 5 years wooing Peggy, until she finally agreed to one of his many proposals, and with this union, completed their family.
While living in Evanston Wyoming, Peggy became a grandmother for the first time to Dustin Jay Lewis. After becoming grandparents, Peggy and Randy moved to the family farm located in Eden Idaho, in 1986. They resided here for much of their life and continued to grow their family with many grandchildren. Peggy’s love of the outdoors was evident in her daily yard work, beautiful rose bushes, and abundance of fruit trees on the family farm. Peggy loved yard work and could be found outside on the mower as often as possible, especially if it meant she could skip the housework. Peggy doted on each grandchild, who spent much of their youth on the family farm with grandma and grandpa. She hand sewed nearly every Halloween costume, every barbie doll outfit, and mended all of their torn clothing.
In 2016, Peggy and Randy celebrated their 35th of marriage and 40th year of love. Peggy lived out her remaining years in Jerome Idaho, where she was constantly surrounded by her 5 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren, and her great-great granddaughter.
Peggy is proceeded in death by her parents William and Dorothy Agee, Samuel and Edith Hansen, her brother Dize Agee, her son baby Merrill Lewis, her granddaughter Jchandra (Jelly) Brown, and her loving husband Randy Hansen. She is survived by 3 siblings Sally, Teddy, and Varl; 3 children, Peggy Sue, Polly, and Penny; 4 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren; and 1 great-great granddaughter.
Services will be held for Peggy on Saturday November 12th, 2022 at 11:00am at Rosenau Funeral Home, 2826 Addison Ave. E., Twin Falls, ID
Peggy’s family would like to thank Penny Lewis for her unwavering devotion to her mother. Penny has selflessly provided the care and love that Peggy needed in her final years.
