HANGER, Peggy (Margaret)
The Guest Book is expired.
Today, the children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and sisters of Peggy (Margaret) Hanger will gather to commemorate and pay tribute to her life over the past 99 years. Margaret Mary Hanger entered the presence of her Savior on December 11, 2012. Peggy was born on June 8, 1913 in Dublin, Ireland and came to Canada with her Aunt at the age of seven after her mother passed away. She spent most of her early years in Edmonton and later met and married Arthur and became a farmer's wife in Three Hills, Alberta. Life on the farm was not easy for a city woman but mom endured and became a dedicated work mate with dad. Together they raised four children, Marie, Arthur Jr., Jim and Sheila. Peggy was predeceased by her loving husband Arthur on December 17, 1978, her daughter Marie on February 2, 2012 and five of her seven brothers and sisters. Her remaining family feel privileged to have shared some special and significant time with her during the past few months. Those shared times have changed their lives immensely. Peggy is survived by her sons Art (Margaret), Jim (Sharon), daughter Sheila (Stan) Tippe, son-in-law Marcel Labbe, 16 grandchildren, 32 great-grandchildren, sisters Elizabeth (Lily) McGuiness and Bernice Jewell. A Funeral Service will be held at St. Joseph's Catholic Church, Three Hills, AB on Saturday, December 15, 2012 at 1:00 p.m. Interment will follow at Three Hills Cemetery. Condolences may be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org.
