Peggy Geraldine Baczuk

Born May 22, 1936 in Albuquerque, NM to Herschel and Genevieve Esberg Johnson. Raised in Fort Defiance, AZ, on the Navajo reservation until the age of 14, when the family relocated to what was Intermountain Indian School in Brigham City, UT. Peggy graduated from Box Elder High School in Brigham, and Weber State College. She also

received a B.S. Degree from the University of Utah in Clinical Laboratory Science. Peggy worked in various local laboratories until retiring from Cottonwood Hospital in Murray. She loved her job, but most of all, she loved the people she worked with and the students that came into her life. They were family.

Peggy married Robert Baczuk in April of 1959, at St. Henry’s Catholic church in Brigham City, UT.

She is survived by their children, Michael Baczuk, his wife Peggy, and granddaughters Nicole and Natalie (Trent) Herbert; Rebecca Baczuk, MD and her husband Richard Kramer; Paul Baczuk and Shari Juhasz; sister-in-law Sandra Johnson (Douglas Dec), nephew and niece David and Kristen Johnson; nephew John Stephens and wife Amy.

She is preceded in death by her parents, husband Robert, daughter Jennifer, brother Douglas and half-sister Pauline Nelson.

There will be a private celebration of her life with family and friends at a later date. 

In lieu of flowers, please donate to the local Humane Society and to Best Friends.

She was a brilliant, talented woman who will be dearly missed by those that love her.
