POWERS, Peggy Annetta Helen


Passed away peacefully and on her own terms on 6 May 2019 at the age of 83 years, surrounded by love.  She is remembered by her loving family: 3 sons David Zryd (Nancy Wilmot), Michael Zryd (Tess Takahashi), and Bob Zryd (Sally Cowan), 2 sisters Pat Calveley (George) and Fran Talbot and close cousin Frank Misurka (Ann), 4 grandchildren (Jonah, Annie, Will, Adrian), and numerous other relatives and friends. She was widowed at 21 when her first husband, Ron Taylor, a bush pilot and father to David, was killed in a plane crash.


Peg was a forthright independent spirit. A Winnipeg girl, she started her family in Churchill, MN, and lived in Nova Scotia, Calgary (proud business owner of Country Quilts & City Lace) and BC, where she earned a diploma in early childcare education. In retirement, she explored her artistic nature with fabric and colour, and had a personal business card that read, “Peg Powers, Serious Knitter.” She loved flowers, nature, peace, and beauty, and deeply valued her friends and family. ...


Friends are invited to a celebration of life to be held on Saturday May 11,  2019 at 11 am at the Open Door Spiritualist Sanctuary, 1600 Cook St., Victoria.
