(née BANKS) 

May 3, 1942 - August 28, 2022

With great sadness, we announce that Peggy passed away on August 28, 2022.


Peggy is survived by her husband of 59 years (Norm); children Leonette (Martin) and Todd (Darlene); brothers Bryan and David; sister-in-law Bev; and many nieces and nephews.


Peggy worked tirelessly alongside Norm for close to 60 years in many ventures from Chicken Delight Franchise, Founding Gondola Pizza, opening Mr Mustard Restaurant, operating Medicine Rock Cafe and operating many commercial properties.


Peggy had a great love for family, friends, travel and food. She took extreme pleasure in sharing her love of food with others and always had great attention to detail. She loved her cabin at Twin Lakes Beach where she tended her garden, enjoyed the view of the lake with tea  & a book, and entertained friends and family with drinks. There was a special place in her heart for annual trips to Hawaii and Palm Springs where countless memories were made. The many, many, many photos from the cabin and Hawaii are a testament for her love of sunsets!


Peggy's family kindly requests that all of her friends and relatives take a few minutes to honour her memory by watching the photo-biography above. Please, also consider sharing your own photos, memories, and stories by making use of the comment section on this page.


In Accordance with their wishes, cremation has taken place and a private formal service will be held.


The family wishes to acknowledge and Thank Friendly Care Givers Senior’s Care (especially Jemanesh & Kate) and the medical staff at the Grace Hospital (Emergency and 2 South) for all the wonderful care and kindness given to Peggy. 

A Hui Hou Kakou Mom!

(Hawaiian, Until We Meet Again)


We Love You More!
