Ethel Margaret ‘Peg’ Nielsen


(Dec. 5, 1928 - May 24, 2018)

Ethel Margaret “Peg” Nielsen, 89, passed away Thursday, May 24, 2018, in Powell.

She was born Dec. 5, 1928, in Pullman, Washington, to Ray and Ruth (Davis) Stearns. After graduating high school, she married Harry Richard (Dick) Nielsen on July 22, 1948. They lived in Powell, where Peg was a bookkeeper and homemaker. She was a member of Faith Community Church.

Peg will be remembered for her love of family and God, strength through diversity, funny little quirks and relentless cookie baking, and her love of all things involving cats and chocolate. She was a gifted quilter and enjoyed fishing and hunting as well. Peg longed to be reunited with her late husband, and has received that blessing. We wish them peace in Heaven forever.

Peg is survived by her sons, Pete (Vicki) Nielsen of Powell and Craig Nielsen of Powell; and six grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her husband and her sister, Dorothy Jens.

Services will be Saturday, June 2, 2018, at 10 a.m. at Faith Community Church with Pastor David Seratt officiating.
