Margaret JOHNSON

JOHNSON, Margaret (Peggy)

(nee Harper)

In loving memory of Peggy Johnson born on November 4, 1939 and who grew up in Cloverdale and lived most of her life in Surrey, B.C. It’s with great sadness that we say goodbye to ”The Bell of the Ball” whose heart suddenly stopped beating on September 11, 2008. It’s fitting she passed away on a historic day for she spent 33 years making history come alive at the ST Rock and at Fort Langley National Historic site as a Historical Interpreter. Peggy was predeceased by her parents Eleanor and Charlie and her brother Jack. She was a beloved mom to her children Jim (Lynn) & David Kennett and her daughter Yolanda (Graham) and mom to Gabrielle. She was Kitty Grandma, but better known as ”Gummy” to her grandsons Nathan (23) and Jerad (21). One of her constant joys was spoiling her grandsons with love, laughter & fun. Her passing has left a hole in many people’s heart, especially her family, and her friends Lynn Davidson, Chester Peebles (who also suddenly died of a heart attack on Oct 10, 2008), her co-workers and her church community. Peggy approached her life with tenacity, kindness, extreme generosity, always offering support to others. She loved: her work, to cook, sew, shop for bargains, grow flowers, collect antiques, but most of all loved to share a meal out with family or friends. Peggy saw God as her source ”And I know God is able to make all grace abound to me so that in all things at all times having all that I need, I will abound in every good work” (2Cor. 9:8) Please join us for a life celebration service and potluck dinner at Fort Langley National Historic Site, on Sun Nov 9, 2008 @ 5:30pm; RSVP to: Yoewoman@hotmail.com, by Fri Nov 7th, with number attending and favourite antidotes or memories to share. Flowers are welcomed for the service or donations supporting foster children with Foster Parents Plan BC
