Peggy and her husband Sig worked in logging camps in Refuge Cove, Sig built them a float house which they later pulled up in Hariot Bay and settled there for many years. They both worked at the Quadra School as janitors and Grandma took care of the lunch room. She later worked at A &W as a cook. When they moved to Campbell River she worked in Home Care, also volunteering for the Stroke Club.
Grandma loved to go camping with her daughter Margaret & Bob, her sister Ethel, camping friends Ruth & Chuck Finney. They spent many days camping around the lower Campbell Lakes where she could be seen rowing the canoe.
She spent many Fridays at Card Night at Ironwood Place and Senior Centre. She was always up for a game of cards, socializing over coffee with friends at the John Perkins building.
Grandma would take walks down at the spit and watch the fishing boats most evenings in the summer with her dear friend Ann Marshall.
She will also be sadly missed by the entire Koizomi family and Gerald, as she was just known as Grandma, as she spent most holidays with them and brought the broken glass cake.
Due to Grandma’s wishes there will be no funeral, but a private family internment will follow at the Quadra Island cemetery later this year.
