Margaret ‘Peggy’ Anne Grabowski

-

It is with loving memories and deep sadness, that we wish to announce the passing of Peggy Grabowski. Peggy was born in Edmonton, AB, to the late Glendora and Lionel Marshall, the second of nine children.
Deeply loved by those who knew her, Peggy was predeceased by her husband Jack, and siblings David, Gordon, Carole and Sharon.
She is survived by her children Kevin, Barry, and Tracy and Jack’s son Fred (Shelley), and their grandchildren Chelin, Marrol, Theresa, Whitney and Tanner. Peggy will be missed by her siblings Patricia, Linda, Wendy and James as well as many nieces, nephews and wonderful friends.
Peggy joined the Royal Canadian Air Force at age 18, leaving home for Ontario for training. After the Air Force, she worked in various administrative positions before beginning her long career with the Alberta Attorney General, becoming the first woman to serve as a clerk in the Court of Queen’s Bench in Edmonton, and one of the first female court administrators in Provincial Court. Peggy led by example, both in standing up for herself and having a strong work ethic.
Together with Jack, Peggy loved horses. She participated in many horse shows, earning awards regionally, including Arabian English Pleasure Champion. Jack was her proudest fan. After retiring, Peggy moved to Powell River, BC, where she thrived at enjoying life. She loved to laugh and was always active; her passions included quilting, golfing, kayaking, gardening, and spending time with family and friends. In 2015, she moved back to Edmonton to be closer to family.
Peggy enjoyed travel, visiting every province in Canada, many parts of the U.S., Ireland, Australia, Cuba and Mexico.
She was as sweet as the treats she loved to eat; kind, funny, creative, and generous. She will be greatly missed.
In lieu of flowers, please select “donate” at ride.conquercancer.ca/Vancouver to sponsor Peggy’s granddaughters Chelin, Marrol or Theresa Grabowski.
A Celebration of Peggy’s beautiful Life will be announced at a later date.
