Peggy Ann Carter Crane, age 85, passed away on Tuesday, August 22, 2017 in Delta, Utah. She was born on June 24, 1932 in Hinckley, Utah, the sixth of the 9 children of Byron B and Gladys Carrie Stewart Carter. Peggy attended Hinckley High School where she participated as a softball pitcher and was elected into the Rodeo Royalty. She was encouraged to go on a blind date with a young man from Delta. He was able to capture her heart, and she married Grant Allen Crane on September 8, 1950 in the Manti LDS Temple. Soon after Grant was drafted in the military. They moved to Fort Warden in Port Townsend, Washington until he was discharged and they moved back to Delta in 1953.
Peggy worked in the meat department of Quality Market, as a clerk at the Delmart store, and several years cleaning IPP. She enjoyed making many porcelain dolls and quilts, oil painting and participating in a square dancing club with her husband during the 50's. She loved to spend time with her friends, especially Helen Wright during their many activities. Her home was a warm and inviting place full of fun, and she was a great cook.
