Margaret Alice Joan "Peggy" Appleby


Margaret Alice Joan "Peggy" Appleby

Margaret Alice Joan "Peggy" Appleby, of Moncton, NB passed away peacefully in hospital in Truro, NS on Monday, April 19, 2021 at age 98. She was the daughter of Henry Roy and Bertha Geraldine (Tessier) Smith, of Lower Coverdale, NB.

Survived by her brother, George Smith of Moncton, her children; daughter Candace and two sons Peter and Brian. She has many cousins, nieces, and nephews, five grandchildren, and four great-grandchildren.

Predeceased by her husband, Robert Parker "Bob" Appleby, of Moncton, her mother and father, and four of her five siblings; Douglas, Charlie, Jim, and Blaikie.

Peggy was a member of Mount Royal United Church - previously Wesley Memorial, where she was a very active "Lifetime Member" of the United Church Women, meeting each month with her friends through to her later years living at Royal Court.

Peggy worked with the Canadian National Railway for nine years, and retired after her marriage. She was a devoted mother, a proud wife, a wonderful cook, and a welcoming hostess. She encouraged others to "speak fitly, or be silent wisely", and she reminded us "if you can’t say anything nice, don’t say anything at all."

The funeral service will be held at a later date. Interment will be in Wilmot Memorial Cemetery. Donations in Peggy's memory made to the Mount Royal United Church in Moncton would be appreciated by the family.
