Peggy Ann Kleve

February 24, 1952 — February 14, 2024

Sioux City

Peggy Ann Kleve, 71, of Sioux City, peacefully passed away on Wednesday, February 14, 2024 surrounded by loved ones. A memorial service will be held at 2:00 P.M. on Saturday, February 24, 2024, at Meyer Brothers Morningside Chapel. Visitation will take place one hour prior at the funeral home.

Peggy was born to Harry and Louise (Ostling) Lindquist on February 24, 1952, in Sioux City, Iowa. She graduated from Central High School in 1970 and married her high school sweetheart, Doyle B. Kleve, on December 15, 1972. They shared 51 beautiful years together in Sioux City.


Peggy devoted her life to her family, especially as a loving homemaker and caretaker to her son, Tim, who she cared for with unwavering dedication. 


Family meant everything to her, and she cherished traveling to Colorado to visit her brother and his family. Peggy always loved an adventure with her family traveling near and far.  She delighted in attending parades with Tim and her loved ones, adored flowers, enjoyed listening to Beach Boys music, loved Christmas and holidays when family could be together, and found joy in giving gifts and capturing countless memories through photography. Those closest to her will remember Peggy for her boundless kindness, love, and compassion. She always wore a beautiful smile, offered wise advice, and remained a steadfast advocate for the disabled and those in need.


Peggy's faith in her Savior, Jesus, as a Christian, was steadfast and strong. Now, she rejoices with Jesus as she dances and sings in Heaven, free from the pain of her earthly body while being an angel watching over all of us.  


Peggy is survived by her devoted husband, Doyle Kleve of Sioux City; her sons, Nicholas (Kristine) Kleve and Tim Kleve, both of Sergeant Bluff; her cherished grandchildren, Mya, Carter, and Gavin; her sister-in-law, Joyce; numerous cousins, nephews, and nieces; and her dear best friend since the age of five, Julie.  She was preceded in death by her parents, Harry and Louise; her brother, Edwin; her sister, Barbara; her older baby brother, Lloyd; and her sister-in-law, Linda.

Peggy found inspiration in the quote: "Life's journey is not to arrive at the grave safely, in a well-preserved body, but rather to skid in sideways, totally worn out, shouting 'Holy Crap, what a ride!'" She was a beacon of hope, teaching her loved ones the enduring power of optimism even in the face of adversity.  Her spirit, love, and resilience will forever be cherished by her family and friends. Her legacy lives on through the invaluable lessons she imparted to us all.


She passed away on Valentine’s Day, a day that symbolizes love, as she was, and always will be, a pure, loving influence on us all.
