Margo Peebles, 68, passed away on July 31, 2017. She was born in Colfax, Washington to Bill and Hazel Durham. She grew up in Colfax and attended Colfax High School where she enjoyed sports and met many of her lifelong friends. She married Tim Peebles, her high school sweetheart, on June 14, 1969.
Margo worked at many different places through the years, including Coeur d'Alene High School and the Coeur d'Alene Police Department. She was also a bookkeeper for several people who became dear friends. Since her retirement, Margo has been very dedicated to charity work, especially a group called Relatives As Parents. This group helps families that have children whose parents are not the primary caregiver. In 2006, Margo was awarded the Soroptimist Community Activist Award for her work with this group. Margo loved spending time with her family and grandchildren, often hosting family get-togethers. She also enjoyed cross stitching, doing crafts, and absolutely loved watching Seahawk games. She was active in the Community United Methodist Church and also worked with the Giving Hope Foundation.
