Peggy and her husband Ed moved across the country in 1976 to California, both in wheelchairs and camping in their van. Co-owner of “Huson’s Once Upon a Time” they started a business making miniatures. With her husband’s background in electronics and her creative mind, they created beautiful and innovative crystal chandeliers with the first changeable bulbs for doll houses, as well as elegant miniature furniture.
Peggy had many interests and talents and had earned numerous awards for her paintings and drawings. She had an incredible imagination when it came to designing and sketching paper dolls. Several of her sketches were published in the Paper Doll Studio magazine.
In addition to her parents, she was preceded in death by her loving husband, Edward Huson, and a brother, Fran McDonald.
Peggy was loved by many friends, who knew her for her quick-wit and willingness to listen.
