MONTGOMERY – Lillian Margaret (Peggy)

January 10, 1930 – August 28, 2009

Peggy, our beloved wife, mother, grandmother and great-grandmother passed away peacefully in her sleep on Monday, August 28, 2009 at the age of 79, after a battle with Alzheimer’s. Peggy will be lovingly remembered by her husband of fifty-nine years, George; children, Glenn (Linda), Lynda (Ron), Rhonda (Ken), Donna (John), Jayne (John), Colleen (Ron), and Colin; six grandchildren, Greg, Ashley (Justin), Kaley, Michael, Jack and Alex; and one great-grandchild, Haydan. She also leaves to mourn siblings, Joyce, John (Irene); and many other relatives and dear friends. She was predeceased by her son, Robert Montgomery and siblings, William and June Wood.

Peggy was born to Clara and Robert Wood in Wayne, AB on January 10, 1930. Her and her loving husband George were married on December 16, 1950 and settled in Calgary. They moved several times within Canada before settling in Edmonton in 1964 where they remained until 1989 to raise their eight children. Peggy spent her retirement years in Calgary where she was actively involved with her children and grandchildren, played a game or two of bingo and enjoyed trips to Phoenix each winter. Peggy’s home was always open to family and friends and she was known for her “art of entertaining”, love of music, quick wit and for effectively and efficiently managing a household of ten.

    I can’t even count the number of times was invited to join in Montgomery clan celebrations, especially during the holidays. Peggy made sure I knew I was included and I always felt welcome and at home in her company.

    When I lived in Calgary for nearly 19 years, I was often unable to make it to Manitoba to spend Christmas with my own family. Peggy always made me feel more than welcome in her home, like a member of her extended family — my plate was always full and my glass never empty. She loved having that house full of people laughing and having fun — and we did. She was the essence of a woman being “the heart of the home.”

    I am grateful she was here and so saddened that she is gone. But, I will always remember her laughter and generosity…and it will always make me smile.

    My deepest condolences to all the Montgomery family on their great loss.

    With love,
    Fiona

    Many fond memories come to mind as we remember Peggy Montgomery. She embraced all of us with care, love and affection. Always encouraging us to join the Montgomery Family hospitality for many grande family functions. Peggy’s generous, giving nature – contagious smile and laughter were all great attributes she shared graciously and passed on through all she met. We always left the Montgomery household full of food, fun and lots of laughter. Peggy will be dearly missed by all.

    Our deepest sympathies go out to the Montgomery family and friends during this time.

    With All Our Love
    Best Regards Always
    Greg, Laureen Daniel, Emily and Jonathan Bucyk
    Cloverdale, B.C.
