Margaret (Peggy) HENSTRIDGE

HENSTRIDGE, Margaret (Peggy)

May 30, 1940 – September 17, 2011

It is with great sadness and grief that we share the passing of “Peggy”, a wonderful wife, mother, sister, grammie, and friend. Peggy embraced life, laughter, and love throughout her long courageous battle with idiopathic pulmonary fibrosis. Those who knew Peggy will remember the 43 years of hard work and love she dedicated to her customers as the owner/operator of Ladysmith Beauty Shoppe. Peggy will always be remembered for her wonderful sense of humour, her ability to make anyone laugh, her contagious smile, but most of all her never ending supply of love and support for others. Peggy cherished her family and friends, and showed us all how to live life to the fullest and embrace each day. She is predeceased by her sister Deloris, and her parents Murray and Retta. Peggy is survived by Norm her loving husband of 50 years, her sister Connie, son Richard (Josee) and daughter Norma (Cal) and four grandchildren Brayden, Kyla, Alison, and Meaghan. The family would like to thank the many friends and caregivers who have been so supportive over the years, in particular Dr. C. Fritsch, Dr. V. Kilvert, Marilynne, Jo-Anne, Wendy, Wilma, Mark, Bill, and Sandy. At Peggy’s request no formal service will be held, but instead a celebration of life will be held at a later date. If friends and family so wish, they may make a donation in Peggy’s name to the Canadian Lung Association.


Wonderful memories woven in gold.

These are the memories we tenderly hold.

Deep in our hearts her memory is kept.

To love, to cherish and never forget.

Your loving family.
