Margaret “Peggy” E. Pattison, 98, passed away Monday May 27, 2019 at Frances Mahon Deaconess Hospital in Glasgow, Montana.
Peggy was born in Cohoes, New York October 21, 1920 to William and Ruth (Hartley) Donovan. She was destined to leave the East Coast when she met a handsome young Army Officer, Bill Pattison from Glasgow, Montana.
After a variety of assignments in the East, Southeast and the birth of their daughter, Karen, in Austin, Texas they made their way home to Glasgow.
Peggy did substitute teaching, bookkeeping for Pattison Implement and Motors. She loved to knit and sew right up until the time of her death. She was an avid reader, loved watching the birds at her bird feeder, but most of all she enjoyed her family and friends. She and Bill enjoyed traveling to see their first grandchild in Seattle, then Anchorage. Their travels took them to the four corners of the world: Alaska, Hawaii, Mexico, and China. Their souvenirs were always large pieces of art that cover the walls of their home and stacked in closets.
Peggy is survived by her daughter, Karen (Bob) Mathis of Portland, Oregon; grandchildren, Tyler Mathis and his wife Lesli Mathis of San Diego; and his sister Alissa Mathis of Las Vegas, Nevada; and many Pattison sisters and brothers -in-law, nieces and nephews.
Peggy is preceded in death by her husband and parents.
