Peggy was born in New Westminster, B.C. and spent her childhood years growing up on the family farm in Ladner, which she always fondly remembered.
She met and married her first husband Wilf Luck in 1936, moving to Courtenay in 1940. Peggy and Wilf enjoyed many years of square dancing and round dancing with the Comox Valley Ocean Waves Square Dance Club, until his passing in 1993. She was also a member of the Kinette Club in the Comox Valley.
Camping and fishing with her family in earlier years was always a special time for Peggy. She also loved animals and was always eager to give any she met a loving pat. Watching Baseball and Figure skating each season was another pleasure and she definitely had her favorites.
Peggy was very social and always enjoyed playing cards and the company of friends. She also liked sewing, knitting and gardening and was an avid reader, always enjoying a good book, until failing eyesight made these interests difficult for her.
In 1996, at the age of 80 yrs young, Peggy married George Field. She continued to enjoy another 7 years of square dancing and RV`ìng with George until his passing in 2003.
Her family would like to thank all the home support and homecare workers for their care and friendship that enabled Peggy to stay in her home as long as she did.
