Kovel's Antiques: Antique toys very different from modern
Old toys are very different from those made today. Toymakers of long ago did not try to encourage creativity. A toy was made to resemble a known part of life – a house, car or pet – or perhaps a fantasy – a rocketship or robot. Or they were puzzles meant to teach the alphabet or arithmetic, or character dolls from stories that told of good behavior or gave lessons from the Bible.

Peggy Ann Laney
Peggy Ann Laney, 63, passed away March 29th, 2014, at her home in Seattle, surrounded by loving family.

Incredibly witty and well loved, Peggy was born August 22nd, 1950 in Fargo. She attended Fargo Public Schools and graduated from Fargo South High School in 1968. Her main objective in high school, besides graduating, was car hopping with her twin sister Paula at the local A&W and watching over their little brother Dave. After high school she began to work for the Fargo Answering Service. In 1971 she married Steve Laney and later became the most loving mother of two children, Justin and Kara. Over the next several years Peggy worked in the family business as bookkeeper for L&L Plumbing and Eagan Plumbing. During their time in Williston, ND, she and her family enjoyed the RV lifestyle while supporting their son in his Motocross interests. In 1988, a few years after the family moved to Eagan, MN, she began her career at US West in Customer Service, where she quickly worked her way up to a manager position as a Customer Service Trainer. Her fondest memories of this time included coffee with her colleagues prior to starting work every morning. In 1999, with her children graduated from college, she and Steve made their retirement dreams come true by moving into their lake home in Detroit Lakes, MN, while spending winters in Scottsdale AZ. Summers were spent with her sister Paula in the cabin next door sunbathing, drinking coffee, putting together puzzles, and eating popcorn, with many a weekend visit from her children to soak up the cabin life. In 2008, her ultimate dream came true and she became a grandmother for the first time. This quickly became her loving obsession and in the next few years she was blessed with two more grandchildren. So passionate in this new role, she and Steve followed their daughter Kara out to Seattle in 2011 to insert themselves more fully into the grandparenting lifestyle. It was during this time she was diagnosed with cancer, making the next 2¼ years especially precious. Peggy lived the last years of her life, as she did her whole life, with an unmatched sense of humor, grace, and astounding strength. She was a loving wife, devoted mother, caring sister, loyal friend, and doting grandmother. She will be greatly missed. Peggy was preceded in death by her mother Margaret Rusness and beloved twin sister Paula Parmer. She is survived by her husband Steve, son Justin (Misty) Laney and their children James and Andrew, Maple Grove, MN, daughter Kara (Sebastian) Petry and their son Max, Seattle, WA, her brother Dave (Diane) Rusness, Fargo, and many nephews and nieces. There will be a celebration of life event sometime this summer in Fargo, details forthcoming, for information please contact Kara at seattlesusie2002@yahoo.com. Donations in Peggy’s loving memory can be made to: SightLife, 221 Yale Ave N, STE 450, Seattle, WA 981
