Ronaye Peppar , age 76, passed away on Monday, May 17th, 2021, at St. Joseph Hospital in Bellingham, WA.
She was born March 22nd, 1945 in Escanaba, MI to Rhoda (Williams) and Louis Doucette.
She met her childhood sweetheart, Noll Peppar, at the age of 14 and it was love at first sight. They were married on the 4th of July, 1964, and they really did see fireworks on their honeymoon! Noll alway said God blessed him with a wonderful wife and a wonderful life. Ronaye was always by his side and was his best friend.
Ronaye was a friend to anyone who would let her into their lives. She always put others before herself; she loved with everything she had and gave her heart fully to all. But, above everything else, her family always came first. She was their rock and lived a daily example of strength and compassion.
Her daughter, Lorea says her mother was the strongest woman she knew; she would never quit and would always met adversity head on. Anything of importance, Lorea learned from her mother. She can not express in words how thankful she will always be for her guidance, love, friendship and understanding.
Ronaye was predeceased by her parents, Rhoda and Louis Doucette, her beloved son-in-law, David Hokanson and her lovely daughter, Jodi Peppar.
