Peggy was born on September 9, 1961 to Clarence and Jane Edwards in Lethbridge at Saint Michael’s Hospital. After a short time in California her family moved back to Barnwell. She went to school in Barnwell and Taber. Then, following her older brother’s example, went to Rick’s College and BYU, completing a degree in chemistry. She was working at the Research Station when she met Bob at a Single’s function in Taber. She loved math and tutored high school students as a part time job while raising her own children. She was very active in The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints always magnifying her calling and reaching out to help others. Her favourite calling was teaching early morning Seminary and was very saddened when her illness became too debilitating to let her continue. The Funeral is on Friday, May 31, 2019 at 10:30 am in the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, COPPERWOOD CHAPEL, 9 Keystone Terrace West, Lethbridge. There will be a lunch provided.
