1921 – 2012


Mrs. Gwendolyn Margaret Searight known to all as Peggy, passed away on Monday, November 12, 2012 at the age of 91 years. Peggy was born in Lansdowne, Ontario in 1921 and was the youngest daughter of James and Elizabeth Moxley. Peggy spent her earliest years on the family farm and later in Lansdowne where she helped in her Father’s store and cared for her Mother who had taken ill. This is where her love of nature and animals was nurtured by her father and her love of painting by her mother. Peggy moved to Ottawa and worked for the Government during the war. She met her future husband Gaile Searight who was stationed there with the air force. Peggy moved to Saskatoon to be closer to Gaile and shortly after they were married in Ottawa and then returned to Milden, SK to begin their married life together. Peggy and Gaile had 3 daughters, Beth (Don) Millar of St. Albert, Diane (Ron) Palmer of Stettler and Mary Jean (Peter) Whiteman of Emerald Park, SK. Peggy enjoyed her family and life in Saskatchewan but truly missed her family in Ontario. Peggy was involved in her community with the art clubs, bridge club, and with many community service organizations. She enjoyed people and stayed young at heart her entire 91 years. Peggy had 6 grandchildren, 7 great grandchildren with an 8th expected in May. Peggy was a kind and gentle soul who greatly enjoyed her family and all of the experiences her life journey presented her. She was predeceased by her husband Gaile Searight, her parents, brothers Lyle and Don and sister Jean. She will be missed greatly by her family, friends and numerous relatives. A memorial service to celebrate Peggy’s full life was held at the Brennen Funeral Home Chapel on Friday, November 16, 2012 at 2:00 P.M. with the Rev. Ross Helgeton officiating.
