It is with great sadness that the family of Peggy Eileen Freethy announces her peaceful passing on May 19, 2018 at the age of 99. Peggy leaves behind a legacy of laughter, storytelling, and an adventurous spirit that will be cherished by all who knew her.
Peggy is survived by her three children, Diane, Russell (Dorothy) and Eileen Silver (Rick); Granddaughter, Erin Larsen (Adam) and her Great Granddaughter, Hazel. She will also be lovingly remembered by her niece, Barbara Jones of Toronto; numerous cousins, extended family and dear friends.
Peggy Eileen Mulliner was born in Victoria on August 21, 1918. She grew up in James Bay with her parents, Frank and Pleasance Mulliner and her younger sister, Betty. She graduated from Victoria High School in 1936 then worked at the Hudson’s Bay Company before marrying William Ralph Freethy in June of 1940. Peggy was incredibly active within the Victoria community and later developed a passion for art and antiques which led to the opening of Pegasus Antiques on Langley Street where she spent the next 30 years.
One of the secrets to Peggy’s longevity was her swimming regimen at the Grand Pacific Hotel. She was also an active member of the Union Club and loved spending time with the many friends she made there.
At Peggy’s request a private family service was held, but please join us for a farewell visitation in the Sequoia Centre at McCall Gardens, 4665 Falaise Drive, on Thursday, June 14th, 2018 from 1:30 p.m.-3:00 p.m.
In lieu of flowers, the family kindly asks that donations be made in Peggy’s honour to the charity of your choice
