  1. You will be missed Peggy. I will never forget how you welcomed me into the family. You were always so loving supportive and cheerful. So many long talks and so much great advice! I know you are in a better place with the love of your life, Pete, dancing and laughing and looking over your family who will always love you and never forget you. We will miss you always.

    Lisa, Scott and Petley family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family at this very difficult time.

  3. I read with great sadness of the passing of your Mom and friend.
    My German Shepherd dog Lexi and I are a St. John Ambulance Therapy Dog team of Sarnia Lambton and we visit regularly at Meadowview. We came to know Peggy through these visits. I’m not sure who enjoyed the visits more. Oh how your Mom loved to see the dog come. Always the question of could Lexi have a treat and while treats are not encouraged, I simply couldn’t say no since they enjoyed each other so much. Lexi loves all the residents she visits but she does have her favourites and Peggy was a favourite. The sign of being a favourite is for Lexi to lay across a resident’s feet and Peggy received the favourite sign the first visit. Peggy thought that was just lovely. Even if the door was closed, we knocked to see if we were welcome and there was never a time we were not. Such a gracious lady. Elegant to a fault with a beautiful smile. We know you will miss her tremendously however you must have so many memories to help you carry on. Please accept my sincere condolences on the loss of your Mom.

  4. I’m so sorry to hear. Peg was an absolutely marvellous and elegant woman. I have very fond memories of afternoon teas and production meetings for the theatre. I learned a lot from her. My condolences to the entire family.
