Peggy was born in Durham, England on January 9, 1924. In 1928, Peggy and family departed from Liverpool, England bound for Canada, settling in Bellevue in the Crowsnest Pass. At the age of eighteen, she joined the war effort as a member of the Women’s Royal Canadian Naval Service in Halifax. Proud of her Naval service, Peggy spent nearly three years as a Decoder, a role essential for secure Naval Communications.
Returning to the Crowsnest Pass after the war to work at the local Bank, Peggy accepted a transfer to a Bank in Foremost. A serendipitous meeting at the Foremost train station upon arriving introduced her to her future husband, Trygve Hougen. They would marry shortly after in 1947. Peggy and Trygve remained in Foremost where they raised their two children, Charles and Terry.
During her time in Foremost, Peggy became an integral part of Foremost’s United Church; enjoying many years in the choir and assisting in its administrative functions. After years of working at the local Royal Bank, she decided to change paths and became a school secretary at the Foremost School until her retirement.  Peggy greatly valued the friends she made in the Foremost community, the United congregations in both Foremost and Bow Island, as well as the Pleasant View Lodge.
The greatest joy of her life was her family, especially her children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. She revelled in the successes of them all, waiting to hear about their latest adventures or their next challenges. She beamed with pride when discussing any of them.
Peggy was a beloved mother, grandmother and great grandmother. She will be dearly missed by her family and many friends.

LIND

GERRY LIND, passed away peacefully at the Chinook Regional Hospital on Thursday, December 14th, 2017 at the age of 81 years.

Gerry is survived by his loving wife and constant companion, Sheryle. He is also survived by his sisters in law Deanna (Jack) Gerow of Kelowna, BC, Darlene (Dale Keene) Kimberley of Enderby, BC, numerous special cousins, a favourite Uncle to many nieces and nephews, and a very special friend who became like family, Darcy Walker.

He was predeceased by his parents, two brothers and one sister.

In 1957, this devilishly handsome rascal ordered 29 hotdogs at the Salmon Arms Drive-In, intriguing the young impressionable carhop. On August 20th, 1960, they were pronounced husband and wife, raising their one son Michael (Jan) Lind now of Calgary. Gerry treasured his two granddaughters, Freya and Astrid who in return adored their fun-loving Gramps.

Gerry and Sheryle loved to travel and enjoyed their most recent trip to the Yukon. They enjoyed many cruises, however, their favourite place became Tobago where they made lifelong friends with many of the local islanders. Gerry was a well-respected volunteer in our community, serving two terms as Master of the Masonic Lodge, always pitching in at Southminster and First United Churches, as well as many other organizations.

While no one is perfect, the best description of Gerry would be to say he loved to share laughter, was one of the most non-judgmental people on this earth and overall made this world a better place to live. His unique sense of humour, as well as perhaps his sense of gullibleness, will be greatly missed.

A Service of Remembrance will be held at the SOUTHMINSTER UNITED CHURCH, 1011 – 4th Avenue South, Lethbridge, on Friday, January 19th, 2018 at 2:00 P.M., with Reverend James Grunden & Pastor Dr George Takashima officiating.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Gerald’s memory to a charity of your choice.
