Margaret Eva (Peggy) Wraspir Chapple

Margaret Eva (Peggy) Wraspir Chapple passed away November 24, 2014. She was born June 15, 1919 in American Falls, Idaho. She was the last of six children born to Anthony Karl Wraspir and Agnes Zicha. She attended school in Idaho and then moved to Sacramento, California where she received her beautician license. She moved to Ogden, Utah where she met her husband Joseph Lynn Chapple. They were married June 5, 1944 in the Salt Lake City Temple and were blessed with four children.

Peggy was involved in initiating programs to help handicapped children receive an education. She, along with three others, spent many years advocating for these children. She helped to obtain Federal grants and State funding to acquire a building and teachers for a school.

Peggy enjoyed walking and she and her son Lane would walk 3 to 4 miles a day until about 2 years ago. They were friends with many people they met on the way.
Peggy was active in the LDS church and served in many callings. She served many years in the Relief Society and was greatly admired for her teaching ability. She was very grateful to be a member of the church and frequently shared her testimony of how she was able to be baptized. She loved serving others and dedicated her life to serving her handicapped son.
Her true love and passion was family history. Her ancestors came from the Czechoslovakia area. In 1968, the Russians invaded this country and made it nearly impossible to get any information about her ancestors. But she was able to get help from some people inside the country who willingly risked their own freedom in order to send her the information they found.

During the last few years, Peggy has made hundreds of children's quilts for the Children's Justice Center in Ogden. Even though she was advanced in age, Peggy was always finding ways to serve others.

Peggy was the last surviving member of her own family. She was preceded in death by her husband, Joseph Lynn Chapple, who died September 10, 2006. She is survived by her four children; Joy (Michael Bitter) Joel (Tina Chapple) Evan and Lane, and 16 grandchildren, 47 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great-grand children.

Funeral services will be held on Saturday, November 29th, 2014 at 1pm in the Kingston LDS Chapel, 36th and Polk Ave, Ogden, Utah. A viewing will be held prior to the service from 12 – 12:45pm. Interment will be in the Hooper City Cemetery.
