Peggy Sue Bogema

Peg was born on May 28, 1961, in Evanston, Illinois as Peggy Sue Webster, daughter of Loretta A Webster and Richard S Webster.  Peg passed away unexpectedly on Sunday, 8 January 2023. During her life, Peg was a daughter, sister, musician, writer, business leader, minister, gardener, wife, mother, friend and cat caretaker. She will be dearly missed, but we know this is not an ending, but rather the beginning of her next great adventure.

Peg grew up with her older brother, Scott, and her younger sister, Nancy (Nan) in Park Ridge, Illinois.  She graduated from Maine South High School in Park Ridge, Illinois in 1979 and earned her Bachelor’s degree in Music from University of Michigan in 1983.  After college Peg worked for a music studio. Together with her writing partners, she co-wrote several screenplays, one of which was made into a movie. 

In 1997 she married David Bogema and was his beloved wife for 26 years. With Dave, Peg took great joy in raising their two sons, Nikolas and Jacob. She loved her boys dearly, valued their unique strengths, and prepared them for an amazing future.

Also in 1997 she became the second employee at Stout Systems near Detroit, MI; she was instrumental in growing the company and became President in 2017.  As President, she led the company through many changes and challenges, including the COVID 19 pandemic, and continued to build the business into a strong and unique software development company.  Peg was a dynamic leader and took great pleasure in mentoring others.  In 2022, Peg was selected to attend the prestigious <name of program>.

Peg was an ordained Scientology minister, and she used what she learned in Scientology to counsel and improve the lives of countless people. She was committed to supporting future generations by actively engaging in social betterment programs including the Foundation for a Drug Free World, Youth for Human Rights, and many others.

Peg was always there for people with words of wisdom, a cheerful smile, and a helping hand. Peg had an intrinsic motivation to improve the lives of everyone she met. 

Peg was predeceased by her mother Loretta Webster and father Richard Webster (Katherine). Peg was survived by her husband, David Bogema, brother Scott Webster (Mildred), sister Nancy (Nan) Clarke (Eric), her Aunt and Uncle Beyer, and numerous beloved nephews, grand nephews and nieces, cousins and dear friends.
