Peggy Plant

March 14, 1921 - January 6, 2012


Peggy Plant (nee Sherlock)
March 14, 1921 – January 6, 2012

Peggy passed away peacefully at Nelson Jubilee Manor. She was born at the Wield, near Seven Oaks, Kent, England. She was predeceased by her husband Steve and sister Kathleen.
Peg and Steve spent most of their lives together travelling from place to place with the Royal Canadian Air Force, Moving to Kamloops upon retirement. Peg enjoyed entertaining and helping others, from entertaining the troops in the hospitals during the war, to playing roles in various stage productions. Everywhere she lived Peg was an active community member: church choir, brownies and cubs, garden club, Meals on Wheels, bowling, eastern star and driving the cancer car from Kamloops to Kelowna (in her 80’s).
Peg loved to travel and had a wonderful imagination. She created stories about a fairy called “Fairy Gold Dust” who was always helping others, whether it was Mr. Squirrel or Mrs. Robin. Peg was very patient and had the most wonderful positive attitude that continued beyond her more active years. She was “glad to be alive”, loved rain as well as sunny weather, loved camping and nature’s green. Peg made over 150 hand-knitted scarecrows for family and friends, any proceeds going to the Cancer Society. Her “attitude of gratitude” was alive and well until the day of her passing. We will be forever grateful that she appeared not to suffer and was cared for in the loving and peaceful environment of Nelson Jubilee Manor.
Peg is survived by her sister Ann Willie and family (England), her son Stephen Plant and grandchildren Colin, Byron, Damien and Ariel and great-grandchildren Quinn and Becket, and her daughter Wenda Plant (Hastings), grandchildren Alyssa (Boyer), Wesley and Michael, and great-grandchildren Chiara and Emmett.
