Only met a few times, but I'll remember her big laugh and her calling Jack Jackie lol.
I still have the bee puppet she gave me from her clowning days .
Pain free and clowning around again .
RIP Aunt Peggy

Peggy, as I've always known her, was a dear friend of my Mom's and knew me from my earliest days. Her gentle spirit, her wonderful sense of humour, and her faith will always be cherished in my memory. I just know she's already getting together with Margaret Fern and my Mom.
RIP Peggy. See you later.

Our mother, Isabelle was Aunt Peggy's sister. Our family has such fond memories of Aunt Peggy when she came "out west" for a visit. While here, she performed as Clover the Clown for two local daycares and entertained a large crowd of children and parents at a special performance at our home. She had everyone in stitches.
Isabelle was so happy that Peggy made the trip to be with her and had such a wonderful time together.
For several years after her visit, Peggy would phone us on New Year's Eve and chat about family and the upcoming year.
We send our love to Peggy's family.
