Peggy Anne Watanuki- 78, passed away on Wednesday, May 11, 2022, at the Legacy House of Bountiful after a courageous battle with Alzheimer’s Disease. She was born on November 19, 1943, in Salt Lake City, UT to Alma Nephi and Gabie Tine Case. She was the youngest of 13 children. A year after graduating from West High School, she married her high school sweetheart, Bob Watanuki. They had 6 children. They later divorced but were lucky enough to remain friends. Peggy worked in varied professional fields to raise a big family and to help keep her children involved in activities. She never missed their hundreds of sporting events.

Peggy had lots of passions in life: church, gardening, genealogy, quilting, crafting, and baking for others. Mostly she cherished her time spent with family and friends. According to her, “The best gift to get, was the gift of giving.” During the holidays, she enjoyed being a "Secret Santa". Attending the Case Family Reunion was a special tradition she treasured. Peggy was a loyal member of the LDS Church, in the Rose Park North Stake; She held various callings.

Peggy is preceded in death by her parents and 11 siblings. She is survived by her brother Darrell Case, her children: Glen, Jodi (Mark), Kip (Amber), Scott, Matt (Kristin), Midori (Lucas), 11 grandchildren, and 7 great-grandchildren.

The family would like to thank the Legacy House of Bountiful and the hospice team from Inspiration Home Health for the tender care she received.
