    Peggy Ann Nebbe was born on Dec. 6, 1942, in Clinton, Iowa, the daughter of Wilbur and Helen
    (Sheppard) Harvey. She graduated with the Johnston High School Class of 1961, and from Iowa
    State University in the winter of 1966, with a degree in Zoology. Peggy was united in
    marriage to Douglas Nebbe on Aug. 28, 1965, at Meredith Drive Reformed Church in Des Moines,
    Iowa. She taught school from 1966 to 1968 at Saydel Jr. High, after which she focused on
    raising the couple's three sons. In the spring of 1971, Peggy and Doug moved to Ogden where
    they established their home. She then worked as a bookkeeper in the family business, Four-N
    Industries, until 1974. Peggy and Doug then founded the Bike Barn in Ogden, where she stayed
    involved in the everyday activities until her death.

    Peggy belonged to Bethel Church in Boone where she was the Choir Director, helped with AWANA,
    and directed "The Gospel According to Scrooge" for many years. She enjoyed the many camping
    trips and bike rides she took with her family. Most of all she enjoyed the time spent with
    her family and friends.

    She is survived by her husband, Douglas Nebbe of Ogden, Iowa; three sons and their spouses,
    Robb and Joelle Nebbe of Leeds, England, Dann and Sue Nebbe of Ames, Iowa, and Jonn and Alissa
