Peggy died peacefully with family present.

Peggy was predeceased by her husband Kenneth Bonell, (of 49 years), her son, David Bonell, and her son-in-law Ken Swanson. Peggy has left behind 2 daughters: Patricia McWhirter (Glen), Judy Swanson (Eric) and 1 son, Daniel Bonell (Laurie). She had 9 grandchildren, & 11 great grandchildren. She was called “Mom”, “Granny”, or “Great Granny” by family and “Peggy” or “Mrs. B.” by her friends. Peggy loved her family above all & enjoyed many happy travel holidays to visit her children.

Peggy enjoyed the outdoor life, especially camping, fishing, and hunting with family & friends. Peggy and Ken were campground hosts for BC Parks for many years. They enjoyed several areas in the province as hosts.

Among the countless volunteer activities, Peggy worked for the Kimberley School District for many years, as well as belonging to the Rebecca's & Royal Purple Lodges and the Kiwanis in Kimberly and Oliver.

Peggy has sung in many choirs over the years & enjoyed singing for family & friends. She sang for weddings, funerals and many concerts over the years.

Many thanks to the staff at Haven Hill Retirement Centre for the excellent skills and care shown to our Mom and Granny.
