Mrs. Peggy van Ardenne late of the Menno Hospital, passed away peacefully on September 7, 2006 at the age of 87 years at the MSA Hospital.

She is survived by her loving husband Joe of almost 60 years, sons Joe (Sheryl), and John and grandsons, Shaun (Linda) and Lee. Also surviving her are her sisters, Cory (Dick) and Ali (Ben), sister-in-law Mina, and brothers Nico (Bab) and Arie (Huip)

Peggy came to Canada from Holland with her husband and two young sons in 1954 and settled in Haney. After a few years, they moved to Abbotsford and have remained there since. She spent all her time at home raising her sons and being a typical Dutch homemaker, keeping the house spotless. Mom was an extremely caring person, believing in integrity, and above all honesty. She was very generous to those in need and had a great heart for those who where suffering. Mom spent the last 8 months of her life in the hospital. She always was so happy to see family and that sparkle in her eyes never faded until the very end.

Funeral service will be held the 13th of September, 2006 at 1:00 pm from Bethel Reformed Church at 3260 Gladwin Rd, Abbotsford, B.C. with Pastor David Vandevelde officiating. Burial was held at Musselwhite Cemetary. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Mennonite Benevolent Society 32945 Marshall Road Abbotsford, BC V2S 1K1
