Peggy was born in Grande Prairie, Alberta and moved to Vancouver Island with her family at age six.  She lived in Saltair and Chemainus, raising her family in the latter.  She worked as an office administrative assistant at the Chemainus Secondary School and then in a mining firm in downtown Vancouver.  She retired with her husband to Magna Bay, BC. and spent some very happy years there.   Peggy enjoyed gardening, watching hockey and really enjoyed reality talent shows.  She had a love for music and played piano by ear.  She loved her family and was a caregiver at heart.  Peggy was married to her husband for 50 years, losing him just 2 days after their 50th anniversary.  Thanks to family and friends for their help and support to make her last months memorable and comfortable, especially her brother Norm, and friends Shirley, Robin and Ralph for looking after her home.  A memorial will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the BC Cancer Agency, 399 Royal Ave., Kelowna, BC V1Y 5L3.

    I had the great pleasure of seeing Peggy every 5 weeks for the last 15 years to do her hair. She was a wonderful remarkable woman. How she looked after Ken was amazing. We had lovely times. Talking about all the singing shows and America’s got talent. Hearing about all the kids and grand kids that she was so proud of. I will miss her . I am very sorry for your loss. I’m sure there is another angel in heaven.

    We’ll always remember Peggy as a kind, generous and extremely hard working woman. We had the pleasure of walking by their place at Lucerne Beach for many years and always admired the gardens! Our sincere sympathies from all the families that make up the Wilrodrey crew at Lucerne.

    We live in Ken and Peggys old neighborhood in Magna Bay and John was their computer tech. We were very fond of Peggy as we always found her to be a very sweet and kind person. She will be missed. Our condolences to the family.
