Peggy Mann of Bluffton, Alberta passed away peacefully at the Northcott Care Centre, Ponoka on Sunday, September 21, 2014 at the age of 90 years.
Peggy Glanfield was born on July 8, 1924 at Winmarleigh, Lancashire, England. She moved to Canada with her parents and family in 1929, and settled in Erskine, Alberta where they lived until moving to Hoadley in 1935. The family took up the hard life of homesteading, and Peggy obtained her schooling in the Society School District where she formed some life-long friendships. She was united in marriage to Bob Mann in 1949, and together they raised their family on a farm in the Iola District where Peggy was an active and long-term member of the Iola Busy Beavers. The well-being of Peggy’s family was always uppermost in her mind and nothing gave her greater joy than her children, grandchildren, great grandchildren, and great-great grandchildren. Peggy lived a full life homesteading and farming. She loved all of God’s creatures and was deeply concerned about the safety of the planet that God has loaned to us. Peggy took pride in her garden and was well-known for her canning and home-baked bread. Her hobbies were sewing, reading, and writing.
Peggy will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her seven children: her sons, Robert (Carol) Mann of Bluffton; James Mann of Rimbey; and Roy (Brenda) Mann of Anzac, Alberta; and her daughters, Ada (John) Jacobs of Ponoka; Margaret (Rod) Katchorek of Saskatoon, Saskatchewan; Jean (Darryl) Hughes of Edmonton; and Laura Mann of Spruce Grove; as well as her six grandchildren: Steven (Lisa) Mann of Rimbey; David (Holly) Mann of Bluffton; Jacqueline (Darcy) Koch of Rimbey; Andrew and Emily Jacobs both of Ponoka; and Jayden Mann of Anzac; in addition to ten great grandchildren; and three great-great grandchildren. She also leaves to mourn her passing her brothers, Oliver (Marjorie) Glanfield of Fort Chipewyan, Alberta; and Brian (Joan) Glanfield of Enderby, B.C.; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, other relatives, and many friends. Peggy was predeceased by her father, Fred in 1943; her mother, Isabelle in 1955; her beloved husband, Bob in 1996; her baby son, Gordon Michael in 1956; her brother, Fred Glanfield in 2013; and two sisters, Ruth Rauchert in 1993 and Lucy Banks in 2002.
