Carylee Peters Sigler

On Monday, Sept. 24, 2012, Carylee Peters Sigler lost her courageous five-month battle with cancer.

Carylee was born Aug. 24, 1935, in White Sulfur Springs, W.Va. She met her husband, Gene Sigler, in 1951. They were married for 45 years and raised 11 children. As an Air Force wife, Carylee supported her husband and family while her husband served in Korea and Vietnam. She lived in various states and spent four years in Tripoli, Libya, before moving to Destin, Fla., in 1963.

She was an avid gardener and supporter of wild life and nature, loved road trips, our local beaches, movies, shopping, offshore and overnight deep sea fishing, local festivals, live performances and the Blue Angels air shows. She also carried a 50-year love for Sean Connery and the James Bond movies dating back to the early 1960's.
Carylee was preceded in death by her husband, Gene Sigler; her son, Scott Sigler; daughter, Diane Sigler Garner; and great-granddaughter, Janelle Sigler.

Those left behind to celebrate her life include her partner, Donald MacLeod; children, Butch Sigler, Pat Sigler, Susie Sigler, Cindy L'Abbe and husband, Kenny, Cathy Ferruzza and husband, Joe, Tracie Stone, Karen Sigler, Carrie Hetzel and husband, Gary, Cristie Worthington and husband, Gary; grandchildren, Ryan Ferruzza, Keeny and Kelsey L'Abbe, Hayley, Bethany and Robin Stone, Suzzie Henderson, Candice Peerson, Caroline Carmell, Amy Sigler, Scott Sigler, Jr., Megan Sigler, Shannon Sigler and Tristan Worthington; and 11 beloved great-grandchildren.

Carylee will be forever remembered and honored for unwavering love and commitment to her children, as well as her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. This commitment will permeate through to strengthen generations of family members to come.

"A hundred years from now it will not matter what my bank account was, the sort of house I lived in, or the kind of car I drove . but the world may be different because I was important in the life of a child."
