BARBER, Hilda Elaine (Peggy) (nee Crawford)


Born January 30, 1924. A creative and caring mother, wife and friend, Peggy passed away quietly after 91 wonderful years on Thursday, October 8, 2015.

Mum had a full life and will be remembered well by her friends and family. She was married for almost 50 years to Jack Barber, who predeceased her in 1995. Peggy raised Susan (Aubrey Falls) and Leslie (Susan Hawke) and was grandmother to Graham and Mathew Barber. Peggy was the daughter of Richard and Hilda Crawford and sister of Leslie Crawford (Bea Crawford) and aunt to many nieces and nephews.

Although we are very sad we are especially grateful to Rosemary Routh (mom’s other daughter) and Jan, Nancy and Brenda who enabled Mum to enjoy her own home as long as possible.

We also want to thank all the staff at the Finnish Rest Home who filled Mums’ days with caring, laughter and music. You are truly angels.

At Peggys’ request there will not be a funeral service though we will be having a gathering of close friends and family in her honour.

In lieu of flowers, we would gratefully accept your kind wishes and donations in mums’ memory to the Finnish Rest Home.

Arrangements entrusted to Arthur Funeral Home & Cremation Centre ( 492 Wellington St. E., Sault Ste. Marie, ON P6A 2L9 705-759-2522).
