Johnson: Margaret “Peggy” (Peggy Neville)

Of Sauble Beach, after a valiant battle with cancer at Grey Bruce Health Services Wiarton on Sunday, August 9th, 2009.

The former Margaret Eleanor “Peggy” Neville at the age of 67 years. Loving wife and best friend of Don for over 39 years. Cherished mother of Anesie Johnson-Smith and her husband Aaron, of Oakville and Terry Johnson, of Winnipeg. Devoted Grandma to Sydney and Parker. Sister of Kenneth Neville and his wife Judy, of Winnipeg and Dr. Barbara Yunker and her husband Dr. Gary Yunker, of Tennessee.

Peggy will be missed by her niece and nephew Raegan Neville, and Ryan Neville and his wife Rhea. Peggy was a consummate entertainer, beginning her career on the Red River Jamboree, on CBC. As her popularity climbed, CBC introduced the Peggy Neville Show. This was the very first attempt at a colour television program broadcasting in Canada.

Friends are invited to gather with the family at the Thomas C. Whitcroft Funeral Home & Chapel, 814 Bruce Road 8, Sauble Beach (519) 422-0041 on Wednesday from 12 -1 pm, where a service celebrating Peggy's life will be conducted in the chapel at 1 o'clock.

There will be a private family interment in Zion Cemetery, Hepworth. Donations to the GBHS Oncology Dept. or to Wiarton Hospital Palliative Care would be greatly appreciated.

Condolences may be expressed on-line at www.whitcroftfuneralhome.com
