PEACOCK – Margaret

December 6, 1933 – December 18, 2010

Peacock, Margaret Methven (nee Johnstone), RN (1956), BSc (1998), passed peacefully in the early hours of Saturday, December 18th, 2010 with family by her side.

Born in Toronto to Scottish parents, Margaret was proud and determined, with a kind heart, keen intellect and an adventurous spirit. Her interests and achievements were many and varied. Margaret was a Registered Nurse, graduating from Toronto Western Hospital’s Atkinson School of Nursing in 1956. The 1960s brought a career change – motherhood – and she was the best! She loved music and painting, a good “cuppa” and nature – especially the winds whispering through the pines. She travelled to Europe, the Middle East and China and bravely camped across Canada and back with 3 young children. Her life-long interest in the past led her back to school and she received a Bachelor of Science degree in Archaeology from the University of Calgary at the age of 65. Margaret was a loving mother and doting grandmother who will be deeply missed by all who knew and loved her. Rest peacefully, we will remember you always. We love you INFINITY!

Left to celebrate her life and hold dear her memory are her three children; Sandra (Jean-Claude Schweizer) of Vernon, BC; Diane, of Calgary, AB; and Douglas (Amanda) of Weyakwin, SK; her four granddaughters, Elyse, Emma, Kayla and Jordanna Peacock; and her former husband, Jim Peacock (Denny Beeman) of Courtenay, BC.

Margaret was predeceased by her parents, James and Catherine Johnstone, and her siblings; Wallace, John and Catherine Johnstone, all of Toronto, ONT.

Those wishing to pay their respects prior to the service may do so at McINNIS & HOLLOWAY’S Chapel of the Bells (2720 Centre Street North) on Thursday, December 30, 2010 at 1:30 p.m.

  4. Margaret was a really wonderful and inspirational woman. She never stopped learning, and I think that was a key to her agelessness. She had that enthusiasm and fascination that was catching. Bob and I send our sincere condolences to Sandy and Di and all the family. with love, Nancy Turner

  6. Marg and I were nursing students together, and room-mates for a year – she was my Matron of Honour when I married — I have so many fond memories of our times together over those early years, and I remember that camping trip to the coast . Unfortunately time and distance have separated us, but she will always be an old and dear friend, very fondly remembered. My deepest sympathy to you all, Sandy, Diane and Doug and families, in your loss. Cherish your memories! Sincerely, Donna Carlaw.
