Obituary for Peggy Jean Bell

Peggy Jean Bell, 57, of Gold Beach, passed away in Portland, Ore., surrounded by family on Jan. 31, 2014 after a two-year battle with leukemia. Peggy was born in Gold Beach on March 23, 1956, to Carl and Josephine (Slaughter) Hale. She grew up in Gold Beach, and graduated early from high school, complete with honors. On Sept. 22, 1973, Peggy married Ross Bell in Reno, Nev. They had three children together. Peggy worked as an office manager in real estate appraisals for Bryson Appraisals, where she was employed for nearly 15 years. Peggy loved to read; she also enjoyed sewing, and was known for embroidering baby blankets for loved ones. She was the “trivia queen,” and could answer just about any question she was asked. She was an avid fan of ‘Jeopardy.’ She was a very courageous woman; she was strong, and never gave up. She also had what might be considered the biggest porcelain clown collection in Gold Beach. Peggy is survived by her husband, Ross; son Tad Bell and his wife Jill of Gold Beach; daughter Genny Bell -Turner and her husband Jimmer of Gold Beach; brother Roger Hale of Eugene, Ore.; sister Karen Hodge of Myrtle Point, Ore.; sister Marilyn Miller and her husband Joe of Redmond, Ore.; and her mother, Josephine Hale of Gold Beach. Grandchildren Jordan Turner, Wesley Turner, Emily Turner, Ryan McGinnis, Tyler McGinnis, Brandon McGinnis, Courtney Curtis, 8 great-grandchildren, and numerous aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins. She is preceded in death by her son Josh Carl Bell, and father Carl Hale. If you would like, donations can be made to either the Coastal Home Health and Hospice or the OHSU Knight Cancer Institute. A graveside service will be held this Saturday, Feb. 8, at 2 p.m. at the Rogue River Cemetery in Gold Beach, Ore. A memorial service will follow at the Curry County Fairgrounds in the Showcase building in Gold Beach, at 3 p.m. Redwood Memorial Chapel is assisting the family.
