Peggie Underwood, age 78, passed away Sunday, August 30, 1998 at her home in Clearfield after struggling for many years with lung and heart problems.
She was born June 30, 1920 in Ogden, Utah, the daughter of Orson Parley and FlorenceRosealtha Allred. She was married to James Loyd Underwood on February 7, 1957. They were sealed together in the Salt Lake LDS Temple on March 24, 1959. She was previously married to Rowe William Searles, who passed away from cancer in 1956.
She was raised in Ogden and attended Weber High and Weber State College. She was a member of the XI ETA Chapter of the Beta Sigma Phi Sorority. She was a member of the Clearfield LDS 6th Ward, where she served many positions throughout her life including ward
organist and stake Young Women's leader.
Peggie was an accomplished pianist and organist, having studied in several cities throughout the west. The memory of her delightful music will remain with us always. She was a beautiful and loving wife, mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and sister. We will always cherish the memories of the time we were able to spend with her.
She is survived by her husband, James Loyd Underwood; a son, David Scott Searles, Boise, Idaho; a daughter, Karen Peggie and David John Weaver, Layton, Utah; a step-son, Gene Kenneth and Linda Underwood, Alexandria,
Virginia; two step-daughters, Carol and Chuck Brackett, Osceola, Indiana; Sherian Underwood, Halifax, Nova Scotia; 10 grandchildren and three great-grandchildren. She is also survived by four brothers and three sisters, Melba Dabb, Thurman Allred, Claire Allred, Ruth Wise, Dean Allred, Dell Allred, and Carma Gentry. Her oldest son, Stephen Row Searles passed away at the age of two in 1946. We are confident that mother and son are together again after these many years apart.
