Peggy Gardner

March 26, 1932 – April 17, 2016

Peggy passed away peacefully in her sleep at Moog & Friends Hospice House on Sunday, April 17th, in her 84th year. Peggy is lovingly remembered by her family, her soul mate, Alan Gardner, son; Rick (Viv) Mohoruk, daughter; Sandy Perry, grandchildren; Steve (Pam) Grande, Brian (Karen) Mohoruk, Kim (Cal) Grande, Carrie (Todd) Homenuk, Robbie (Jessica) Grande, Lori (Brendan) Michaud; eleven great-grandchildren along with extended family and her many friends. She was predeceased by her sisters, Jean Seddon and Mary Johnson, brothers, Earl MacKay and Ronnie MacKay and son-in-law, Rob Perry.

Peggy was a devoted wife, mother, aunt, grandmother, and great-grandmother. She derived great pleasure from her family especially her grandchildren and great grandchildren, not resting until she knitted a blanket for each of her eleven great-grandchildren. The last one was completed two weeks prior to her passing. Peggy has been described as a spitfire and a force to be reckoned with. She was beloved by her large family and many friends for her inner strength and love

Words cannot express the gratitude we feel towards Dr. Wren for the wonderful and compassionate care given to Peggy/Mom during these last few months.
