<div itemprop="description">It is with great sadness that the family announces Peggy, beloved mother and grandmother, passed away peacefully after a short illness at Grace Hospital on April 14, 2017. She was surrounded by her family.<br><br>Peggy will be lovingly remembered by: sons Jim (Marni) and John (Vince); daughter Marnie McCullough (Cam); grandsons Scott, Keith and Daniel; granddaughter Megan; sister-in-law Alice Babington; nephew Terry and nieces Lesley, Lauren, Bonnie, Debbie and Cathy.<br><br>Peggy was pre-deceased by her husband of 63 years Jack, former sports editor of the Winnipeg Tribune, CJOB commentator and LGIW (luckiest guy in the world), her parents James and Jessie Scott of Aberdeen, Scotland and her sisters Marjory Young and Nancy Kent of West Vancouver. While Peggy was separated from her sisters by distance, their love for one another never diminished. <br><br>Peggy was born at home in Winnipeg and graduated from Daniel McIntyre Collegiate, where she ran hurdles. She worked at Eaton’s department store for five years and met Jack, the love of her life, at a dance at Grand Beach. Initially it didn’t look like a good match; Peggy absolutely loved to dance and Jack had two left feet. But Jack persevered and they were married in 1947. Their marriage grew stronger over the next 63 years and they became inseparable as Peggy learned to love sports, especially curling and the Blue Bombers. <br><br>Peggy's favourite drink, no matter the time of day, was tea and over the years she enjoyed hundreds of thousands of cups of Red Rose tea. She was an avid bowler when younger and also attended countless Grey Cups and Briers across the country with Jack. Later in life they found their perfect holiday - cruising the high seas.<br><br>Peggy's proudest achievements were her three children and seeing her grandkids grow up. Her love and support of them never wavered from the day they were born until the day she passed away. They all loved her very much and will miss her a great deal.<br><br>The last few years of her life were spent at St. James Kiwanis Terrace where she was grateful for Eva and the new friends she made there.<br><br>A special thanks to the staff at Grace Hospital for their kindness in Peggy’s final week.<br>Cremation has taken place, and a private family gathering will be held at a later date. <br>Donations may be made in Peggy's memory to the Siloam Mission, 300 Princess St., Winnipeg, MB, R3B 1M3. Please give someone you love a hug.<br><br></div>
