Obituary for Margaret Ann Knauer (Wilson)

Margaret "Peggy" Ann Knauer
July 2, 1937 - March 3, 2023

It is with great sadness that Peggy's family announces her passing on Friday March 3,2023. She will be deeply missed and in our hearts with memories of love, laughter and amazing strength.

She was born in Vancouver, BC on July 2,1937 and has cherished memories of her childhood in Caulfield, West Vancouver. She was predeceased by her husband of 48 years, James D.Knauer, her sister Joan E.Wilson, her parents Ronald and Margaret Wilson. She is survived by her son Jeff Knauer (Jane), daughter Jen Leigh (Bryce), son Bruce Knauer (Berma), Daughter Laurie (Randy). Loving Nana to Ben, Meghan, Karson, Emelia, Jessica, Sarah, Belle and Breezy.

Peggy attended York House School. She spent her high school years at Annie Wright Seminary and attended Northwestern University where she graduated with a B.A. in Arts and Advertising. She and our dad, Jim, continued her father's local appliance business Thomson & Page Ltd. that started in 1929 and transformed it into a Interior design/furniture gallery in the 80's. After their retirement their son Jeff took over the company so that they could enjoy many years boating with family and friends. Peggy truly lived her life to the fullest; she absolutely adored living on her floating home at Canoe Pass Village in Ladner. She loved the simple pleasures of life, she loved spending time with her family and close friends and peaceful days on the river. She had a love of nature and was always up for an adventure. She was a member/paddler in the early days of "Breast in a Boat'' at False Creek. She was a wonderful mum, wife, nana and friend to many and will be dearly missed.

We would like to thank the staff at Honeydo, Sunrise of Lynn Valley, LGH, and Evergreen House for their care and support.
