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,
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.
