Peggy Bell, 76, of Fort Wayne, died Christmas Eve, December 24, 2020, at home in hospice care. Peggy was born February 28, 1944 in Buffalo, NY.
Peggy came to Fort Wayne in late 1983 with her husband from St. Joe, MO. She worked for Red Cross, IBM and Turnstone, retiring in 2006. When Peggy moved to Fort Wayne, she got involved with the arthritis foundation, like she was in MO, and got others involved to work on the telethons. Peggy started at Turnstone as a receptionist and she finished her career as director of volunteers and fundraising events which included Casino events and the Galas. During that time, she was also on the Mayors and Governors counsel for the disabled, and through those events, Peggy was able to inspire many lives coping with disabilities.
She is survived by her Husband Art of Fort Wayne, Brother Jim (Karen) Bell of Washington, Brother Scott (Isabelle) Low of California, 6 nephews and nieces.
Peggy will be cremated and interned at the National Cemetery in Marion, Indiana.
