Peggy Marie (Hailes) Lind, 69, passed away March 27, 2023 in her home, following a six-year battle with cancer. Born September 30, 1953 in Salt Lake City to John Morris Hailes and Pauline (Peck) Hailes, as the 2nd of 6 children. She went to Glendale and South High, before graduating from Bingham High School and attending Brigham Young University.
She was skilled in, and enjoyed, painting and handiwork, music, family history, and cooking and sewing. Her church service included many leadership positions everywhere she lived. Of all she did though, she loved being a wife and stay-at-home mom most. She met her husband, Chris, on a blind date in March 1988 - they were married 2 months later, in the Jordan River Utah Temple. They took their 2 children and followed Chris’ career to South Dakota, Germany, Ireland, and Pennsylvania. Finally escaping the snow and humidity, they retired to Mesquite, NV.
Her children remember her always being able to create or make something ten times better than what could be purchased, doctoring recipes fit for a restaurant and staying up late to help with any homework or project. She loved reading to her grandchildren.
Peggy is survived by her husband Chris, daughter Anne Marie Stirland (Mitch) and son Taylor John Lind (Chelsea); grandchildren Chandler Lind, Bern Jack Stirland, Nora Lind, Arthur Dee Stirland, and Carter Lind; mother, Pauline, and siblings Pat, Penny, Joyce (Brent) and Phillip (Jackie). Her father, Jack, and youngest sister, Lynn predeceased her.
Funeral services will be held Friday, March 31, 2023 at 12pm in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints Bunkerville chapel. There will be no viewing. In lieu of flowers, the family encourages donations, in Peggy’s name, to the Huntsman Cancer Institute to further research, in hopes that soon there will be a cure for this horrible disease.
