"DEP" 2003 Obituary


DEPETRILLO o@ca.on.york_county.toronto.globe_and_mail 2003-05-28 published
Peggy lived her life as a beautiful, special person who brought joy, love and light to everyone she touched. Her kindness, compassion and overwhelming energy to help others was ever present from her days as a nurse at St. Michael's Hospital, Toronto Western Hospital and the Victorian Order of Nurses, to her work as a nursing instructor at Centennial College and as a public health nurse for the City of Toronto. A wife, a mother, a daughter, a sister and a wonderful friend. Peggy lived courageously with ovarian cancer for the last four years, her strength, positive outlook and love of life never wavering. Peggy died peacefully at home, on May 25th, 2003, wrapped in the love of her husband and best friend Bruce and her daughters - Sarah, Rebecca and Martha and son-in-law Josh KESTER. Peggy will be dearly missed by all who knew her including her parents John and Beth SAULT, her in-laws Marg and Os TRUSCOTT, her siblings Mary McKELVEY (Max,) Cathie HUGHES (Wayne,) John SAULT (Linda,) Barb SAULT (Liz THOMAS,) Patty BONTJE (Michael) as well as by her many Friends, cousins, nieces and nephews. We wish to thank Dr. J. STURGEON and Dr. D. DEPETRILLO (Princess Margaret Hospital), Dr. J. MEHARCHAND (Toronto East General Hospital), Dr. J. RIEGER (Temmy Latner Centre for Palliative Care,) and nurses Barb MOFFAT and Ann Marie HOGAN (St. Elizabeth Health Care) for their compassionate and supportive care. At Peggy's request, a private cremation has occurred, arranged by The Simple Alternative Funeral Centre. A service celebrating her life will be held for family and Friends at the McMichael Canadian Art Collection, 10365 Islington Ave, Kleinburg, Ontario (905-893-1121) on Monday, June 2nd, 2003 at 5: 30 p.m. The family extends a warm welcome to all who wish to join them. In lieu of flowers, we encourage donations to the National Ovarian Cancer Association, 27 Park Road, Toronto M4W 2N2 (416-962-2700).
