Peggy Rubel

Peggy Lynn Rubel, 60, passed away peacefully in her home in Oregon City, Ore., on Feb. 8, 2021. She was born on Feb. 21, 1960, in Stayton, Ore., to Dale Eugene and Kathleen Marie (Rak) Rubel.

After graduating from Stayton High School in 1978, she attended Willamette University, where she earned her Bachelor’s degree. In 1986, she graduated from Willamette University with a Master of Management and Doctor of Jurisprudence.

Peggy began her career as a certified public accountant in Hood River, Ore. After working for firms, she opened her own practice in Oregon City in 1992, where she worked and later called home the rest of her life. She loved to travel and was fortunate enough to fulfill that passion by traveling all over the world and sharing that experience with family and friends. She also loved to collect art and took pride in her collection. Peggy loved cooking and learning new ways to expand her culinary knowledge, but she especially loved cooking for those she loved.

Peggy is survived by her spouse, Al Dominguez; mother, Kathleen (Rak) Rubel; brothers Kevin (Connie) Rubel and Alan (Lisa) Rubel; sister, Carol (Murco) Sessler Ringnalda; her four nieces, Stephanie, Shelby, Katelyn, and Erica; and nephews Jordan and Chanan. She is also survived by two step-daughters, Anna (Jeremy) Belcher and Mechelle (Ben) Niezgoda, and seven grandchildren. Peggy was preceded in death by her father, Dale Rubel.
