Margaret (Peggy) Gurr January 19 1954 – November 26 2018

It is with immense grief and sadness that we announce the sudden passing of Peggy Gurr of Logan Lake. Peggy was a kind person who always made people feel welcome. She will be dearly missed by her family, friends and coworkers. She was predeceased by her parents Harvey and Marg Eggen. Peggy is survived by her sisters, Linda (Steve) McBride and Debbie (Brian) Quast and brother Gary (Joy) Eggen, her 2 sons John (Lynn) Coray and Joe (Laura) Coray, grandchildren Jennifer (Luke), Krysten (Corey), David, Dylan (Bailey), Nakayla (Leon), Arianna and Emma and great-grandchildren Jameson, Payten, Finn, Lauren, Curtis and Taylor as well as nieces and nephews Jeremy (Tammy), Sandie (Stuart), Chrissy (Kyle), Tammy (Steve), Karrie and Austin and great nieces and nephews Brady, Carter, Corrine, Declan and Quinn. Peggy has been a member of the Logan Lake community since 1972 and worked at Highland Valley Copper for nearly 40 years. She enjoyed spending time with her family and friends. One of her favourite past times was camping – especially on May Long weekend at Tunkwa Lake. Whenever possible Peggy would challenge friends and family to a game of cards. For the past 10 years Peggy enjoyed the annual girl’s shopping trip to Tulalip with her sister Debbie and numerous friends. A Celebration of Peggy’s life will be held on Dec 8th 1pm at The Church On the Hill, 237 Jasper Drive in Logan Lake. In lieu of flowers, should you desire donations can be made in Peggy’s memory to the Heart and Stroke Foundation.

Peg was truly one of the best friends I ever made. Despite our age difference, we were thick as thieves at work. She was kind, forever curious about my family and goings on, eager to share a bit of gossip; and we enjoyed sharing salty snacks and sweets at our desks! In fact, the last day I saw her, she shared some homemade Peppermint Patties and a wee blather in my office. She was proud of her kids, and eager to tell me stories of her grandchildren, and just as eager to hear about my daughter. She was our rock at work, the lady with the answers. Miss you ‘Old Bird’. I love you, and will be forever grateful to have had you in my life.

My best description of Peggy would be Down-Home Friendly :-) I am so sorry for your loss. Our Family reunions will be less without her.

I remember only the second time I met Peggy. Our daughter was born in April and when I arrived at the family reunion she was only about 3-4 months of age. Peggy walked up to me and said, “oh give me that baby I need to see this child” and grabbed Nicole from my arms. I didn’t hesitate but knew she was safe with Peggy. Gonna miss you Peggy. Your like all the Eggen’s heart of gold and do anything for anyone. Rest In Peace Peggy.
