Peggy Rosaline Murray, 94

Peacefully on Thursday December 18, 2014 at Rainy River Hospital, Peggy Rosaline Murray, 94, of Rainy River passed away.
Peg was born on April 20, 1920 in Three Bridges, Sussex, England to William and Edith Slight. She met her husband, George Arthur Murray, in England where he was serving for the Canadian Armed Forces during WWII. They were married on August 7, 1943 at Worth Anglican Church in the town of Crawley in England.
Although Peggy grew up in Sussex, she called Rainy River her home for over 70 years! When she met George, she was working as an authentic “bomb girl.” Upon her arrival in Canada she became a homemaker. She loved to knit, cook and play cards (and she was pretty good at all of the above!) After the sudden death of her husband in 1971 she re-entered the workforce as a cutter for the Arctic Cat Clothing Company until she retired. After her retirement she found much happiness in helping with the care of her grandchildren, playing cards at the Legion and Senior Depot, and she loved to travel (to warm locations, visit family and to the casino!)
Peggy will be lovingly remembered by her children Dawn (Jim) Jarvis, Vaughn (Melanie) Murray, Wendy (Rick) Gubersky and Lisa (Glen) Armstrong; her 10 grandchildren James, Jason, Natalie, Lisa, Tiffany, Georgia, Jana, Natasha, Jonathan and Chad; and her 16 great-grandchildren Cody, Jenna, Seth, Taryn, Olivia, Jonah, Evan, Luke, Nina, Dani, Haydin, Rex, A.J., Rion, Skyelar and Lyra. She is also survived by her sister-in-law Patsy (Mel) Borgen and numerous nieces and nephews and many friends.
Peggy was predeceased by her parents William & Edith Slight, her husband George A Murray & two brothers Fred & George.
A private family service was held on Saturday, December 20 at St. James Anglican Church with Rev. Myrna Major officiating. A special thanks to her. A memorial service will be held at a future date to be determined.
Interment will take place in Forest Lawn Cemetery, Rainy River at a later date.
If desired memorial donations may be made to St. James Anglican Church, Rainy River c/o Northridge Funeral Home, Box 89, Emo, On P0W 1E0. Online condolences may be offered at
