Betty Peebles

Office Administrator

I was born and raised in Gardena, California, a small suburb about 15 miles south of Los Angeles. My parents immigrated from Japan, and I am the youngest of six as well as the only child born in the states. I grew up in a Buddhist household, and did not attend church.

My faith walk has been slow but steady, and in 2013 I was baptized in the Caribbean Ocean during our second mission trip to Haiti with our church in Iowa.

Jon and I have been married for 25 years. We have lived in five different locations together: Pleasanton, California; Canton, Michigan; Plainfield, Illinois; Bettendorf, Iowa, and now here in beautiful Snoqualmie. We relocated to Washington in October of 2016 after Jon accepted a position at Amazon. We were happy to move back to the West Coast after 20 years of cold Midwestern winters.

We have one daughter, Marisa, who has sung and played the keys with the Church on the Ridge band when she was home during school breaks. She graduates this May from Vanderbilt University in Nashville, Tennessee. She will attend Columbia University School of Nursing in New York City in order to attain a master’s degree and ultimately become a midwife.

As for me, I enjoy watching movies, reading, shopping, photography, art, smooth jazz, old school R&B (love going to Jazz Alley!), eating great food and spending time with friends and family.

I started working at Church on the Ridge in November of 2017 as a part-time office assistant. It is a great place to work (amazing pastors and staff) and a great place to worship. Jon and I have enjoyed meeting many wonderful people at Church on the Ridge. Stop by the office or at the weekend service and say hello! I would love to share my testimony with you or just connect over coffee.
