Peggy passed away peacefully on March 12, 2021 in Victoria, her beloved birthplace, at the age of 95. She loved life as she loved her family.

She is survived by her children Bruce (Kathryn), Kathy (Terry), and Jane (Ted), and her six grandchildren Lauren, Troy, Morgan, Valentino, Sarah (Jon), Hannah and great granddaughter Makayla and her loving sister Patricia Taylor and many nieces and nephews. She was predeceased by her husband of 67 years, Alan Wright, and her brother Jack Sparks.

Mom was a woman of many accomplishments. She had a passion for sport, especially tennis and golf at which she excelled. She loved playing duplicate bridge, and earned the title of Gold Life Master. She taught Bridge at the Monterey Centre for a number of years and for Princess Cruise Lines, while exploring the world with her husband Alan.

We would like to thank the caregivers at Royal Jubilee Hospital, Palliative Care Ward for their wonderful care of Mom.

A private family celebration of life will be held at a later date.

Our Mother will be sorely missed.

Dear Wright Family, I was very sorry to read of Peggy's passing and would like to express sincere condolences on behalf of the Odgers family. I have warm childhood memories of Alan and Peggy and Jack Sparks and their families (a fun bunch! ) from cricket games my father Graham played in a long time ago at Beacon Hill and Windsor Park, and more recently they were both very nice to my mother Pam when my father died. I'm glad Peggy had such a long and fulfilling life - may you all be comforted by happy memories of her.

Kathy and family - My thoughts are with you during this time of loss. Even though it was many years ago, I too have vivid memories of your very energetic mother heading off to play tennis. I didn’t realize that she was such an accomplished bridge player and have great admiration as I’m struggling to learn how to play it. May fond memories console you in the years ahead.

Kathy and family - I am so sorry for the loss of your Mum. It doesn't matter what age they are, losing a Mum leaves a big emptiness in our lives. My childhood memory of your Mum is coming to your house to play with you and seeing your Mum bouncing down the stairs in her cute little white tennis outfit, with tennis racquet slung over her shoulder and a big smile on her face. Thinking of you.

Bruce (Rice) and family... So sorry to hear about the passing of your Mom. From our days gone by in the Monterey School era, the entire gang always thought your parents were so kind, caring, active and fun. While it was such a long time ago, its clear she stayed that way. Take care. Phil & Lee Pimlott

Peggy was one of the first bridge players I met when we moved to Victoria. After awhile, we played together and she was always so patient and understanding. A great lady, indeed!
