Peggy was involved in a variety of community activities and was always quick to volunteer for a good cause.

She will be fondly remembered for her cooking in general and her cookies in particular.
Due to present circumstances, a celebration of life will be held at a later date.
The family wishes to thank the incredible staff at the CHSLD of Ormstown for the exceptional care and compassion they all gave her.
