Martha Elaine "Peggy" Doering, daughter of Hugo and Minnie (Carlow) Doering, was born September 18, 1936, at Crofton, Nebraska.
Peggy enjoyed life on the farm, which she continued to do on a daily basis until entering Faith Regional Health Services in Norfolk, Nebraska on October 28, 2013. She enjoyed gardening and raising her own livestock. Peggy was proud of her canning abilities, was an excellent cook, and loved to bake; nothing was as good as what you could grow and raise yourself. The last thing Peggy canned was pumpkin puree on October 16, 2013. She took pride in her farm fresh eggs and the cream and milk produced by her Jersey cows. Peggy enjoyed spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchild, and she taught us all to work hard.
Peggy is survived by her four children: Kurtis and Pat (Batten) Doering, Michael Doering, and Janelle Doering, all of Bloomfield, Nebraska, and Gayle and Bob Krohn of Wausa, Nebraska; grandchildren, Ramon and Juan Melendez, Amanda and Ashley Doering, and Chelsey, Michael, and Kylee Kracht; great-grandson, Cayden Doering; as well as brothers, sister, and many friends.
She was preceded in death by her parents, Hugo and Minnie Doering; and brothers, Richard and Russell Doering.
