LADD, Margaret (Peggy)


It is with deep sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother, Peggy Ladd (formerly of Red Deer). Peggy passed away on January 1st, 2013 at the age of 90 years, while under the wonderful care of the nurses and staff at the Bentley Care Centre.

Peggy was born on July 30, 1922 at Irma, Alberta. Her family moved to Mulhurst at Pigeon Lake where she grew up. It was there she met, fell in love and married the love of her life, Judd Ladd on May 3rd. 1941. They raised four children together, moving to Calmar in 1949, then to Red Deer in 1955. While in Red Deer, Peggy joined the work force. She began her career at Kresge’s as Head Floor Supervisor. When the Hudson Bay Co. opened she moved into the positions of Sales Manager and Store Manager for 25 years before she retired in 1984. Peggy was blessed with many friends and was adored for her great sense of humor. After retirement, she spent many hours enjoying her back deck, walking Bower Pond trails, golfing and spending time with her friends at the Oil Wives Club. She especially enjoyed spending time with her children and grandchildren whom she loved dearly.

After selling her home in Upper Fairview in 2003; she resided at the Pines Lodge until 2008. She then moved to Masterpiece Senior Living before finally moving to the Bentley Care Centre in February 2012.

Peggy touched and impacted the lives of anyone she encountered; she adopted both young and old into her extended family. Peggy was loved and admired by everyone who was blessed to have had her in their lives.

Peggy’s children would like to thank the staff at the Bentley Care Centre for the extra special care she received in her last year. Peggy loved each of these ladies dearly as she shared her special kisses; which have been fondly named “Peggy Kisses”.

We love you Mom, Fly with the Angels.
