Caring thoughts and prayers are with you as you mourn the loss of Peggy. May the precious memories that you hold dear carry you through this time of sorrow. With Deepest Sympathy!
I only just learned of Peggy’s passing & in watching the beautiful video tribute I was reminded of the amazing woman I knew only briefly. I knew Peggy through the Foothills Figure Skating Club & she was a force to be reckoned with!! I truly enjoyed the time spent in her company. I extend my heartfelt sympathies to Jim & her family. Sincerely Judy Cheesman.
Tom and I only had the pleasure of your company on the world cruise, but we always remember your friendliness and warmth. Peggy was always so bright, cheerful and humorous , a joy to be with. We feel so sad at her passing as we felt that we came to know you both during those 3 months. I know that she will be missed by many many people as she was such a special person. Much love, Marje & Tom Naismith.
Dear Jim, and to the family,
Heartfelt condolences to you all; I had the absolute privilege of being one of your hosts while you were in Cape Town/South Africa , and meeting Peggy and yourself.
A truly magnificent and inspirational person !!
Remembering her with such fondness. May she Rest in Peace

I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Peggy was a bright shining light in this world. May the glow of her beautiful smile shine on and bring you comfort in your wonderful memories.
Dear Jim and family
I didn't really know Peggy well growing up, nor did I know much about her life in Alberta. She was close to my sister Janet growing up and in later years, you both developed a great friendship with my sister Terry. I was so honored to be able to live stream Peggy's funeral to be able to see the beautiful person she was, that she lived a wonderful life to the fullest, and most importantly, she was well loved. A truly special lady, she will be dearly missed. Sincerely, Carol Maier
Jim and Family: So very sorry for your loss. Peggy was truly a special person and she will be missed by many of us.

Peggy was an incredible woman and I was so fortunate to have known her. I wish we all had more time with her. My condolences to your whole family. She will be missed but you have known great joy and adventure in the life you had together and had a quality of life few get the chance to.

Peggy was indeed astonishing and fun! We wish you all peace and calm in the days ahead. Our family all had fond connection with Peggy. She was a helpful and interested parent, a fun substitute teacher and a good friend. Stay close to each other.
With much love, The Patterson’s Mike, Lesley, Lauren, Claire and Hugh
Sending our condolences and hugs to Jim and Peggy's family. The world is a slightly duller place since Peggy's passing. She was a gift to St. James Youth through which she nurtured leadership qualities in our daughter Brianne.
Any lady in the Foothills area who attended one of The Christian Women's Fellowship Breakfasts over the last 20 years will forever be grateful to Peggy for her role in founding the group and setting the tone of the event to be one of joy, love and hope.
Peggy was magnetic. If she was in the room, you wanted to be in her presence; you were never quite ready for the conversation to be done.
Thank you for sharing her funeral service on line so we could share in her light today.
Keith and Sheila Hartman and our children Adam, Joseph, Brianne, Bethany and Abigail
We had the great privilege of being apart of Peggy and Jim's life at St. Mary's, Peggy guided us through our spiritual journey at RCIA and became a great friend to us. We will miss her deeply and our thoughts and prayers go out to the Hart family at this time. We Will always be indebted to Peggy for her great light in our lives and we are always here for the Hart family. Our deepest and most sincere condolences. Celeste and Giancarlo Oddone
Adriaan and I send our deepest sympathy to you and all the family. A Mass has been requested for Peggy. God Bless . I watched the funeral in its entirety, well done...Peggy would be pleased....Adriaan and Yvonne Pieters
I had the great privilege of standing in front of Peggy in Rhythm of the Rockies, which meant I had her beautiful voice in my ear through every song we sang. Every Tuesday, when I would walk in to rehearsal, she would give me a big smile and a squeeze on my shoulder. In that smile, Peggy radiated positivity and love. She really MEANT that smile, even when she was going through pain herself. She truly cared about everyone, and wanted everyone to do their best. When we competed on stage, we would pass each other walking onto the stage, and she would give a big smile and a wink, telling me that we were going to do great even though we were so nervous. When 3 of us asked Peggy to sing in a quartet with us about 2 years ago, she was happy to host us at her house and give us all words of encouragement. I don't know how much she really wanted to quartet herself, but she wanted to support us and was happy to be a part of it. She loved to tell us stories about her family in between songs. Peggy truly was such a shining light and joy, and I'm so grateful I had a chance to get to know her and sing with her. I wish we had the chance to sing together one last time.
We only new Peggy a short time, but she quickly became our friend; not just a neighbour. Her friendliness and positivity shone brightly. We are very sad that our time knowing her was so brief. We wish Jim and the family all the comfort possible to them in this very sad time.

The world will miss the beautiful, bright light Peggy was. Because her faith and love for Christ preceded mine, I will always remember a moment when Jim & Peggy affirmed my decision to follow Jesus as a teenager. Today I’m praying with the Apostle Paul for everyone her faith & love touched: “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God. For as we share abundantly in Christ's sufferings, so through Christ we share abundantly in comfort too.” 2Cor1.3-5
My deepest condolences and love to Peggy's family. Peggy will be remembered and cherished by all who knew her, and we are so lucky to have counted her as a dear friend. I will always remember Peggy's beautiful voice, her joyful laugh, her quick wit, her heartfelt compassion, and her incredible faith and hospitality. There was no one like her, and that will make our memories all the sweeter, in time.
With love, sympathy, and a grateful heart for having known Peggy,
Karri Quan (friend and fellow singer, from Rhythm of the Rockies)
Aunt Peggy was always full of faith, joy and a love of life. She brought happiness and laughter to everyone with her spirit and personality. She's the first adult I ever saw wearing pleather leggings. And she looked amazing. I have since bought a pair myself, and I think of her every time I wear them. She will truly be missed, but I know she's left an abundance of happy memories with all those who were lucky enough to meet her. Heaven has been blessed with an amazing woman.
I wish I had met Peggy when we were younger... She was a blessing in so many ways, I will miss her and our talks. She offered her friendship without reserve and she was a bright light to all who knew her. Jim I will continue to pray for you and yours as you hold tight to the beautiful memories that you created together.
So sad to hear of Peggy’s passing.
I loved the time I spent singing with Peggy and Jim in the Seventh Heaven Gospel Choir. Her beautiful voice is now singing in Heaven’s Choir.
Jim, our deepest condolences go out to you and your family. Our prayers and thoughts are with you at this difficult time. May God give you strength and may your wonderful memories of Peggy give you peace.
Edie and Louie
I had the privilege to serve with "Peggy" with Youth Ministry at St James Church, Okotoks. She was a great leader with that dynamic personality. I was honoured to walk in her shadow. I pray that her great light now shines in the Glory of Heaven.
Peggy was the most wonderful, loving, genuine person I have honestly ever had the pleasure of having in my life. Her laugh and smile were so contagious. She lived from heart and her light will be missed on earth but will continue to shine in heaven.
So sorry for your loss Jim. Hugs to you and the kids.
Love Kim and Ken Arychuk. Melissa and Nathaniel Thompson
We are thinking of you. She will be in our prayers.
We met in Cape Town South Africa,my thoughts are with Jim and your family,Peggy was such a kind and lovely person with good heart she was like my mother to me...Princess
We met in Ireland and the High Seas. My thoughts and prayers are with you, James, and your family. Peggy has not left you. She never will. I wish you all the strength and courage at this very difficult time. - Reinhard
In this sorrowful time, we would like to extend to you our heartfelt condolences. May our Lord comfort you and your loved ones
To my brave friend:
Peggy through a tragedy we became friends. We would walk countless miles, talking,
crying, exposing our inner most thoughts, supporting each other, holding each other up,
helping each other put one foot in front of another.
As our friendship grew we started spending more time together, our husbands would join us
to walk, have dinners out, go to our favorite Brewery, see movies, attend your singing concerts,
meeting up at Folk Fest, the list goes on.
Through our time together it became clear to me who your were, what your passions were:
Singing was one, you would sometimes practice as we walked,
Education, your never ending desire to keep learning, Kindness towards everyone, I witnessed your
friendship with a homeless man, you knew his name, you knew his story you helped him out,
Faith, to spread the work of God, which you did throughout your life in many different ways.
Love for your family was at the heart of your soul, how proud you were of your children,
each unique and accomplished in their own way.
The greatest joy for you and Jim was spending time with them, on ski trips, participating or supporting
them at different running events, hanging out with them at Folk Fest, or playing Rockband after a
family get together, then starting this cycle of life all over again as grandchildren arrived.
Sadly the unthinkable happened, as it is part of your nature optimism prevailed until it didn't, we've said
this before it just isn't fair.
Peggy, I will miss our walks, conversations, tears, support, dreams shared, outings together with our
husbands, our friendship. You will always be a part of my walks, when I watch your children raise their
children I will see your zest for life and your dedication to family in them.
I will miss you and your beautiful smile.
To Jim, children, and grandchildren...although its been many many years since I've seen Peggy, I still remember our conversations and many laughs. She was such a wonderful soul. Our heartfelt condolences to the whole family.
Deb and Bill Russell
Jim, through Vickie the ladies of Rhythm of the Rockies were able to hear about Peggy's journey of the past many months. Many of us eagerly awaited news, always hoping for the best, but still knowing that we had no control over events. I hope you are aware of the avalanche of love that is coming to you from everyone in our chorus. We keenly feel her loss. Her bright light was a gift to us all. Warmly, Mia Cavanaugh

Peggy and I met through our singing group Rhythm Of the Rockies. We both were volunteers at the casino as chip runners. Man did we have a lot in common. she always use to say I was her sista from anotha motha. haha. I only knew her for about 4 years but how we got along, it seemed like we were friends since childhood. I regret that we never got around to golfing together, we always talked about it, but we were both so busy with other things. I was so glad that I was able to cook some meals for her while she was battling this terrible disease. Our last visit was in July but I would talk to her every night sending strong energy, or I would play one of our songs and think of her standing in front of me on the risers, I was fortunate to have had her as a roommate for a couple of our competitions and she was the best roomy. I will miss her beautiful smile and warm hugs, but she will not be forgotten.
My condolences to Jim and her family god bless
Dear James and family,
I was graced to have come to know Peggy as we studied together at DMU from 2015 to 2017. Each of us grew in our awareness that we were beloved children of God with innate dignity; despite our fallen nature and weakness, redemption and healing were offered through the power of the Risen Christ. Everything that Peggy learned, she communicated to those around her in a kind and professional manner. She worked so hard and gave so much! While the pain of your loss may never be fully healed in this world, may our shared hope in God's loving mercy and his promise of eternal life sustain you as it sustained her in this world. Hope and love are stronger than death! Be assured of my prayers.
Fr. John Doyle
Dear Jim & family, I am so sorry to hear of Peggy's passing. She was a vibrant, intelligent woman that has been taken far too young. Imagine what was left for her to accomplish in life having given the chance. Jim, you were so lucky to have met your soulmate & life partner to conquer the world together. Please let those memories help & comfort you through the days to follow.
Hugs & Prayers,
Sending our deepest sympathy to Jim and the family. Peggy will be missed by so many, and her memory will live on in all who knew her. What a beautiful recounting of her life! Praying for all of you in your grief.....may you feel the comfort of the Lord enfolding you. Bill and Elaine Morrow, Fall River, NS
Our Family was blessed when Jim and Peggy met and married. Family Reunions were full of special memories. We will remember the good times, the laughs and Peggy with Joy.
My heart goes out to Jim and the children and grandchildren. Family is Everything.
My heart is broken in complete shock. Sorry for your loss the Hart Family
I cleaned for Peggy and Jim for quite a few years! Peggy had the biggest heart and we had many laughs! She was an amazing friend and I will miss her deeply!
It is with a sad and loving heart that I send my sympathies to the family. I feel blessed to have known Peggy and called her a most treasured and close friend. We spent many days in long conversations about our faith and thanking God for our families and friends. I remember when we did the historic sequence of the bible together, laughing when we could not agree and celebrating with a glass of wine when we did. We became like sisters. Peggy will not be forgotten and may she rest in peace in the arms if her Lord and Saviour.
Our hearts are broken over the passing of such a wonderful lady and friend. Peggy was such a caring and unselfish person and was always there for you if you needed comfort or just someone to talk to you. Jim, we are so sorry that you have lost your soulmate, friend and love of your life. We know that you and your family hold such special memories of her in your hearts and that she will be fondly remembered always.
Love and Prayers,
Karen and Marty
