Once upon a time, a princess named Louise Kellogg was born. Raised by Bertha and Robert Galloway, she had two sisters, Norma Jean and Evelyn, and one brother, Bobby. They grew up in Kalama, WA. Louise graduated from Kalama High School and shortly thereafter got every princess’ wish, and became queen. Her king was Duane Peppley, and together they had five children, Pete (Heidi), Joe (Pam), Tony (Rae), Matt (Alissa), and finally - her own little princess, Heidi (John Madsen).
Together, Duane and Louise raised their progeny, reigning over various kingdoms in Washington, Idaho, and Oregon. If the Peppley’s weren’t at church, they were likely at a sporting event. And Louise went to nearly all of her children’s games. In fact, one basketball season, Louise went to over 90 games to watch her children play and her king coach.
Throughout her reign, there were no things, no matter how pretty or shiny, that Queen Louise loved more than her family. That became evident when she started having grandchildren (there were a lot: Madison (Caleb Wolfe), Griffin (Haley), Solomon, Silas, Kambria, Cade, Drew, AJ, Brandon, Avery, David, Aubrey, Isaac, Anna, and Evann). Few little ones were loved on quite like Queen Louise’s descendants.
Speaking of family, guess what Louise’s favorite time of the year was? Christmas. Tis the season where family gathers to love on and celebrate each other! Fitting then, that she passed away during the holidays, and can spend that time with the One True King, Jesus.
Outside of family, she did immensely enjoy these above all else: laughter, coffee, baking (particularly of the Christmas variety), flowers, and shopping.
The family would like to express their deepest gratitude and thanks to the compassionate and loving caregivers of Meridian Meadows and Keystone Hospice, who cared for Louise in her last few years.
A celebration of her life will be held at Alsip and Persons Funeral Chapel, 404 10th Ave S, Nampa, ID on December 22, 2022 at 1:00 pm.
