Margaret (Peggy) Ruth HOBENSHIELD

HOBENSHIELD, Margaret (Peggy) Ruth

June 6, 1940 – April 20, 2014

Born in Edmonton, AB, Peggy was the great-granddaughter of Robert Tomlinson, medical missionary on the Nass River, Cedervale and Kincolith.

Peggy is survived by her loving husband Alvin; son Rob (Teresa); daughters Diane (Michael) and Lin (Ed); grandchildren Alek, Halyna, Kate, Dillon, Cassie, Liam and Chase and sister Judy Degerness and brother John (Carell) Johnson.

She will be remembered for her countless hours of volunteer work with the Campbell River Curling Club and local golf clubs. Peggy was instrumental in establishing the women’s golf league at Pacific Playgrounds. Another cause that was close to Peggy’s heart was YANA (You are not alone).

Peggy’s family would also like to thank Dr. Penhall and the wonderful nursing staff on the third floor of CR Hospital for their compassion and support during Peggy’s illness.

In lieu of flowers, please donate to a charity of your choice or volunteer your time to a local organization or charity.
