It is with heavy hearts that the family of Leona Maxine “Peggy” Bentley announces her peaceful passing on January 12, 2019 at the age of 89 after challenges with cancer. Peggy, a Nova Scotia girl, and her late husband Jim moved to Yellowknife, N.W.T. in 1958 where Jim took up duties as a new civil engineer. They then moved briefly to Fredericton, New Brunswick in 1964. The lure of the north had them return after 7 months to reside in Fort Smith, N.W.T. where they lived until their return to Yellowknife in 1968. In 1987 she and Jim retired to Victoria BC and then moved on to Kamloops, B.C. in 2015 to be near their daughter. Peggy was an avid curler who made an indelible impact through her participation in the sport she loved and with the many friends she made along the way. She is lovingly remembered by her children Craig (Ingrid), Cathy (John), and grandchildren Dylan and Madison. Peggy was the eldest daughter of the late Percy and Gladys Boyd of Three Mile Plains , Nova Scotia and was dearly loved by her siblings: the late Jean Starratt; Vivian “Bidy” Stephens; Lawrence Boyd; Marguerite McDermott; Karen Thompson; Donnie Boyd; and Sheila Elliott; brother in law David Bentley and her many nieces and nephews.
