    I was very privileged to have the opportunity to ride Peggy and George’s farm for many years as a child. It is some of the happiest memories I have. Peggy was always a ray of sunshine and always welcomed me with a big smile on her face. She will be greatly missed. My thoughts go out to her family.

    My thoughts and prayers are with you. Peggy and I sang together in the Cochrane choir. Peggy was always a kind, gentle soul. “Be Strong In The Lord” was a favourite song. God bless.

  9. George, Karen, Warren and family’s, I’m so sorry to hear of your loss, My auntie Peggy will always be in my heart, as she was so caring, and I was happy to see her when she came `East` back in June. I will always fondly remember her being my second mom that summer I spent on your ranch back in 1979, and the endless amount of Blueberry pancakes she made for her and I whenever I asked for them, the tours around Alberta, the rodeos we chased, and guidance she provided. She is resting now, an Angel above and forever remembered. Allan
