The family of Peggy Bryant sadly announces her passing on Jan. 9, 2013 at UNHBC in Prince George. There is comfort in knowing that Mom passed away peacefully, and only 6 days after her lifelong friend Mid Williams, a journey the two of them often talked about.
Peggy was born July 5, 1920, in England, and in 1925, after the death of her father, Peggy and her Mom immigrated to Canada and made Vernon and area their home, it was here that Peggy’s sisters Molly and Audrey were born.
Peggy married Idell Quesnel in 1940 and eventually they made Wells their home, where Peggy worked in the drug store. Daughter Edmee was born in 1957. Idell passed away in Jan. 1959. Peggy and Edmee moved to Nanaimo to be close to family but decided after about a year that they would move back to Wells.
Peggy married Harvey Bryant in 1965 and continued to make Wells her home. Together they worked in the Lode theatre and at their many jobs in Barkerville. They also volunteered with many organizations in Wells and enjoyed many activities in all the seasons. Peggy and Harvey retired to Quesnel in 1980. They took great pride in their flower and vegetable gardens. They also continued to be involved with different organizations, including the Seniors Centre, S.P.C.A., Vintage Car Club, St. Andrews United Church and the Hospital Auxiliary. They enjoyed many trips by car, motor home, cruise ship, vintage cars, and bus tours.
After Harvey passed away in 2001, Peggy moved to Fraser Village where she made a lot of wonderful friends and enjoyed many activities there.
Peggy was a wonderful baker and cook. Many memories were made with family and friends around the table. Peggy also knit many pairs of slippers and mitts for mitten trees and bazaars around town.
Peggy is survived by loving daughter Edmee Rosin, much loved grandson Ryan (Lisa) Rosin, adored great-grandsons Carter and Brady, treasured sister Audrey Berry, many special nieces, nephews and friends.
At Peggy’s adamant request, there will be no service at this time. However, in the summer the family plans to have interment of Mom’s ashes as well as those of her son-in-low John at the Quesnel Cemetery. In lieu of flowers donations may be made to the Quesnel Hospital Auxiliary or charity of your choice.
At this time I would like to Thank Dr. Stals, the wonderful staff at Dunrovin, Traci from Home and Community Care and the many friends of Moms from Fraser Village and Quesnel area.
You will be missed by many
–Love you Mom xoxo
