Today, we remember Peggy Lee, on this 100th anniversary of her birth in Minneapolis. Peggy was born as the middle child in the Gallaher family, growing up in Minneapolis, Lake Minnetonka (Zumbra Heights, Excelsior) and Miami. The Gallahers were part-owners and managers of Northwestern Consolidated Milling Company, an enterprise that at one time operated about one quarter of the flour mills in Minneapolis, and which was best known for its Ceresota brand flour. Life threw many curve balls at Peggy. As a young girl she developed major respiratory conditions due to the heavy grain dust content of Minneapolis air, and also contracted lockjaw (tetanus) at one point. She lost her dearly beloved younger brother Punky when he was KIA May 1 1945 in Luzon, PH with the 25th Tropic Lightning Infantry Division near the end of WWII. Pops, her Dad, suffered from alcoholism, which contributed to his early death at age 71 in 1962. The chronic stress from an unhappy marriage of 20+ years, and an ugly divorce in the early 1970s, resulted in Peggy contracting multiple sclerosis just as she was finally breaking free. Peggy relocated to Las Cruces, NM after many years in the Boston area, to restart her life as a divorcée, make new friends, take care of her health, and to find once again peace, happiness and joy in life. She prospered in the dry desert air of Las Cruces, and, with the help of her beloved Siamese cat Chica, found new purpose, meaning and friendships in the authentic New Mexican culture and lifestyle. Our Mom came to adore her newfound home in New Mexico, and loved its people, green chile cuisine, landscapes, colors, stillness and vistas. Throughout her life, through all these challenges and more, Peggy maintained her courage, her dogged persistence in living each day to the max, a strong independent spirit, and her sense of humor. Even as she was not always the perfect Mom, her son now understands that he could have done much more to be the Good Son that she needed to be present in her life, to support her in moving home in Weston and Las Cruces, and to give her the regular calls, hugs, embraces and back rubs that are so important to human connection, well-being and warmth, especially as she aged and grew infirm. She is survived today by her children (Maggie L. Peterson, Albuquerque; Susan F. Lee, Arlington, VA; Burton H. Lee, Palo Alto, CA) and by her nephews and niece (Harry E. Gallaher, Minneapolis; John Gallaher, Phoenix; Robin Gallaher Branch, Memphis). We scattered your ashes, Mom, at your favorite places: on the Rio Grande in Las Cruces, and in the sea otter kelp playgrounds off Monterey Bay Aquarium in California. Thank you, Mom, for giving us life; thank you for raising and taking care of us as kids, along with Dad; thank you for loving us unceasingly from the day we were born to your final breath. Summers at the Cottage in Lake Minnetonka and the deep love and patience that you, Clara, Alma and Joe Lerum showed us - kept us sane in unhappy times. We Love You to Pieces, Mom!! and Happy 100th Birthday!!
