WHY RUN FOR YOUR MOM?
Peggy was born and raised in Lehi. She was a mother of five and always gave her heart, time and energy to her children. She had no greater joy in life than to support and love her children and grandchildren throughout their many adventures.
Peggy had a love of Lehi that showed through her service and continual work in helping the youth and community of Lehi. She loved being a part of and serving on the Lehi Round-Up Rodeo committee, but making miniature floats every year for the parade, was her pride and joy.
Peggy worked at Lehi High School in the Counseling Office as the Scholarship Specialist for over 20 years. She was an advocate for each individual student to continue their education, it was her love and passion to help students receive scholarships in order to help them pursue their dreams.
After being diagnosed with Stage 4 Bladder Cancer, Peggy wanted to give back to those she loved helping most, high school students. Peggy created the Lewis Strong Scholarship, and though she lost her battle with cancer in May of 2018, Peggy will continue on in helping individual students pursue a higher education. The Lewis Strong Scholarship will be given yearly to honor the life of Peggy and her passion for education.
Jayne was born and raised in Lehi, Utah. Throughout her life she was active in the community and dedicated countless hours assisting with miniature parade floats, Lehi Booster Club, and Miss Lehi Pageants. Jayne was a loving and dedicated spouse, mother, and grandmother who enjoyed spending time with her family and loved time with her grandkids supporting them in all of their activities.
In 2002, Jayne set a goal to get active and lose some weight. She started jogging short distances and then challenged herself to participate in her first 5k here in Lehi, Utah. In a pair of pajama pants and a baggy t-shirt, Jayne completed her first 5k. Over the years, Jayne became an accomplished runner and cyclist competing in numerous endurance events including 5Ks, 10Ks, Half & Full Marathons as well as a 140-mile bike race. Jayne regularly won her age division typically finishing faster than most of the other participants half her age.
There were few things in life, aside from family, “Mama Jayne” found greater joy in than spending time with friends training and participating in these events.
Back in 2016, while cycling with some of her closest friends, Jayne was involved in an accident and unfortunately passed away. Jayne was an inspiration and touched so many people’s lives. Although her compassion for others, fun loving spirit, and enthusiasm for the things she loved will be greatly missed, her legacy will never be forgotten.
