at the age of 93 years

Peggy passed away peacefully at the tender age of 93.

She is survived by her husband Bruce, son Laird (Debbie) Roe, daughters Bev (Bill) Heath and Eileen Clark, five grandchildren and eight great grandchildren as well as numerous nieces and nephews all of whom she adored.

Peggy touched so many people over the years, always ready with a joke, a gift or a helping hand.  She had many passions but her greatest passion was laughter.

In lieu of flowers, for anyone wishing, please make a memorial donation in Peggy’s name to the Royal Canadian Legion, Branch #107, 515 Shuswap St., Chase, BC, V0E 1M0, another of her passions.

The family wishes to extend a big thank you to the Salmon Arm Hospital staff for the wonderful care she received in her final days.


  1. What to say abot my l’l G. She always was smiling and telling jokes. She was someone that I looked up to for advice, a kind word or a gentla gramma hugs. Not only was she my best friend, she was my gramdmother. We woul hit the casinos and tilt the machine and giggle. We have had many road trips togerther. I especially remember Craik Booze or Bust in 2003. I will never meet another like her and it so hurts my heart to have lost her, but I will keep writing jokes and when my time comes, we will have a good laugh together. I love you G. Tam

  2. Bruce and Family we are so very sorry for your loss of a very Special Lady, Peggy was always there with a great joke and the warmest smile we will miss her so very much. Our Condolences to you all. Your all in our prayers. Sincerly Carol& Doug Aldcroft.

  3. Your dear little “spitfire” will be missed terribly. Her stories and jokes over the railing were so welcomed and enjoyed. Having her for our neighbor since moving in was so special. Her eternal rest now was so well deserved. What a gem of a lady.

    hugs to your entire family.
