Pearl Gladys (Peggy) Swing

nee: Cobbett

October 17, 1924 – June 14, 2016

Peggy passed away peacefully in her Continuing Care bed at Lady Minto Hospital, hand in hand with loving husband of 64 years, Walter, at her side.

Peggy was predeceased by her parents, Harold and Gladys Cobbett, six brothers and a sister.

Also left to mourn are her sons Steve (Glenna) of Ancaster, Ontario, Terry (Chipman Clan) of Salt Spring Island, BC, Bill (Jenny) of Hamilton, Ontario and Paul of London, England. Cherished and loving Amah (Grandmother) to Scott, Simon, Megan, Liam and Cole. Also survived by brother Ted (Carol) of Burlington, Ontario and many cousins, nieces and nephews in Canada and abroad.

Thanks, love and appreciation to Dr. Ian Gummeson and all the staff of the King’s Lane Clinic, nurses, staff and volunteers of the Continuing Care division of Lady Minto Hospital on Salt Spring Island, BC. Special thank you to neighbours Martin and Camille Ogilvie and home care worker Lisa Lynn for many blessings (more than words can say).

From an early age Peggy was fascinated by the Orient – particularly China. She collected and was given many oriental items and this lifelong interest was expressed in many of her paintings.

In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Peggy will be gratefully appreciated by Lady Minto Hospital Foundation – Salt Spring Island, BC.

A private family memorial has been held.
