PEGGY LEE ALWARD GURNEY, beloved wife of Shayne Gurney of Magrath, passed away on Monday, November 19th, 2012 in Lethbridge, Alberta at the age of 58 years after a year-long battle with brain cancer.
Peggy spent her youth in Lloydminster. Peggy then moved to Edmonton where she attended University, worked, and met the love of her life, eventually moving with her husband to Magrath where she raised her children.
Peggy leaves behind a loving husband Shayne; five children; Daniel (Jody) Gurney, Jarem (Audrey) Gurney, Brett (Natasha) Gurney, Brook (Lee) Oviatt, and David Gurney, and fourteen grandchildren (Slade, Piper, Reese, Finn, Libby, Darby, Emery, Nash, Marjorie, Mya, Kingston, Olivia, Jackson, and Harper); her mother Marjorie Chernoff; 4 brothers, Craig (Marie-Anne) Alward, Bruce (Sandy) Alward, Brian (Lauri) Alward, Dwayne (Julie) Alward; and 1 sister, Sharon (Henry) Westers.
Peggy enjoyed genealogy and family history, and served faithfully in many capacities in the LDS church. Peggy loved to spend time with her grandchildren and loved the outdoors. Peggy spent as much time hiking and camping as she could, and many people recognized her on her daily walks around Magrath. She will be missed by all her family and remembered with love.
