WATKINS, Margaret “Peggy”

August 23, 1923 – October 23, 2015

It is with great sadness that we anounce the passing of our mother, grandmother, great grandmother. Born in Folkstone, England, Peggy emigrated to Canada in 1974 along with her husband Jerry, who predeceased her in 1994. She worked in insurance and retail in Vancouver. Peggy is survived by her daughters Julie & husband Chris, Pam & partner David, Ann, and only son John. Grandchildren, Scott & wife Krystle, Christopher,Helen, David, Andrew, Helen, Caroline, Natasha & Steven and many great grandchildren. Peggy loved to knit & was known for her beautiful sweaters. She loved animals, and spent some of her last time on earth playing with Rusty, our new puppy which brought her great joy. We wish to thank all of the wonderful staff at Hawthorne Seniors Care Community in Poco, in addition to the staff of Royal Crescent Gardens Assisted Living in Maple Ridge, for the many years that she lived there, and for the wonderful care that you provided our mom.

Peggy passed away peacefully at 92 which she was very proud to be. No service as per her wishes.
