MARGARET ‘PEGGY’ LOUISE DOTSON CULLOR

Margaret ‘Peggy’ Louise Cullor passed away peacefully in West Seattle on July 29, 2011. She was born in Cashmere, Washington, the daughter of Margaret and Earl Dotson, on November 22, 1922. In her senior year of high school the family moved to Seattle where she graduated from Queen Anne High School. After attending business school she went to work at Boeing. There she met a young engineer, Glen Cullor, on loan from Lockheed during the war. They married and moved to Burbank, California where Glen had a home. Their first daughter, Margaret, was born 2 years later. When an employment opportunity arose at Boeing, the young family moved back to Seattle where Susan and Janet were born.

Peggy was active in her West Seattle community her entire life. She was a Camp Fire leader when her girls were young. Later she was a member of Quarante, Visiting Nurse Service and Federated Women’s Club. While a member of FWC, she helped raise funds for music scholarships. Her club raised the funds for the construction of the gazebo at South Seattle Community College. Glen designed the structure and helped build it with friends.
In more recent years, Peggy was active on the SSCC Foundation board, chairing the Scholarship Committee.

She is preceded in death by her parents, her brother Thomas, and her husband Glen. She is survived by her daughters Margaret Brown, Susan Cullor and Janet Cullor; granddaughter, Elizabeth ‘Lisa’ Brown; step-granddaughter, Laura Schultz; great granddaughters Emily and Katherine Rodriguez and many cousins, nieces, nephews and friends.

A Celebration of her life will be held on Saturday, August 13 at 3:00 pm at the Brockey Center at South Seattle Community College. In lieu of flowers, remembrances can be made to the SSCC Foundation Scholarship Fund or a charity of your choice.

Peggy was my second mother. Growing up I became the 4th daughter, spending sleep overs, cruising on the Salty Cs and even attending church with the family. Peggy was the quintessential 1950s Mom. Always beautifully groomed, her house impeccable, she had a kind word for everyone. But for all her softness she was a strong woman! I never heard a cross word nor a swear word pass her lips. But she was in control and we girls never forgot it! I treasure the memory of her warm smile, her soft voice and the twinkle in her eye. Peggy was a… Read more »

Peggy and I were very distant relatives and, unfortunately, saw each other most often during times when our Aunt Hilda and Uncle Ivan were ill. She was always a kind and exceptional person; never letting on about her many contributions to the community. I will think of her often and miss her dearly.

I only knew her from the conversations we had when she came to workout. Though she was a very nice and caring woman to me.

I will miss her greatly. I only saw her about 2 months ago… I can’t believe she is gone.

My prayers go to the family that is left behind.

Take care Peggy.
