Shirley (Peg) Buntin

Born October 2, 1930
Died July 27, 2017

Peg Buntin passed away Thursday, July 27th at the Powell Hospital. Shirley (Peg) Hale was the youngest of five children born to Charles & Nellie Hale in Chalk Butte, South Dakota on October 2, 1930. A sister, Rea Esteline Watts (Buffalo, WY), Charles (Mary Lou) Hale (Butte, MT), Peg was proceeded in death by brothers Tandy (Ann) Hale (Idaho) and Verne (Glenda) Hale (Nevada).

Pegs early life was one of dedication to her three children, Richard (Joyce) Given (Caldwell, Idaho), Linda (Kirk) Waggoner (Cody) and Colleen (Clarence) Anderson (Powell).

In 1968 she married her soul mate Eulan Buntin in Powell, WY. From this point she dedicated her life to him and her love of Country Western music. Peg started entertaining around the Big Horn Basin with her folks, Mom and Pop Hale. She became a teacher giving fiddle lessons to hundreds of students from 3 to 103 years old! She formed her own musical group know as ‘Peg and the Travelers’, entertaining at Nursing Homes, Assisted Living and Senior Centers across the Big Horn Basin.

It is her hope that the love of music and her joy of sharing it with others will be carried on by those she taught.

Pegs life will be celebrated August 13, 2017 from 1:00-4:00 pm at Cassie's in Cody, where her family, friends and students will join together doing what she loved most- entertaining her with Country Western Music.
