PIPER, Margaret “Marg” (nee Peters)


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our cherished mother, Margaret (Marg/Margie) Piper who passed away at St. Michael’s Hospital in Toronto on Tuesday, August 25, 2020 at the age of 88.

Beloved wife of the late Winston Piper and loving mother of Michael Piper (Carol), Jeff Piper (Wendy), Wendy Bouliane (David), Gregory Piper (Janet), and Patti Marin (Mike). Adored by her grandchildren Keith (Robin), Amy (Rob), Jodi (Cory), Mitch (Kailen), Bren, Jean-Paul (Tanya), Gabrielle (Roman), Jason (Danielle), Adam, Jenny (Marcus), Cassie (Drew), Brittany, 15 great grandchildren as well as several nieces and nephews. Sister of Shirley Zoerner (late Roy) and the late Betty Mihell (late Bob). Margaret was the daughter of the late Michael and Lillian Peters.

Margaret spent many of her working years at A&P in Sault Ste. Marie and was a member and Past Honoured Royal Lady of the Royal Purple Lodge 155. She was a member of the Precious Blood Cathedral and previously, Our Lady of Mount Carmel Church. During retirement years, Margaret especially enjoyed visits with her grand and great grandchildren at the house that she and her late husband, Winston, built and raised their family in. All family and non-family alike, enjoyed Marg’s ‘plentiful’ cooking for family gatherings and special occasions. She enjoyed her many trips with her sisters throughout Canada and the USA, and trips to Western Canada to enjoy time with her daughter and her family.

A Private Family Graveside Service will be held.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.
