Sara Margaret Davy

July 17, 1925 ~ June 3, 2023 (age 97) 97 Years Old


Sara Margaret “Peggie” Davy

1925 - 2023


Peggie passed away peacefully surrounded by her family at the Swan Valley Health Centre on June 3rd, 2023.

Peggie was the first of eight children born to Sarah Jane (Lockey) and David Moore in July 1925 in Birch River, Manitoba.

Peggie is survived by her six children:

Gordon (Shirley) Scott; Garth (Debbie) Scott; Barbara Ann (Howard) Smith; Blaine (Mavis) Davy; Norman (Joy) Davy; Wade (Elaine) Davy. Nine grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren; her sisters; Vera (Mervin) McFadyen and Betty Lynn Bardwell; and sisters-in-law Julie Mclure, Vicky Moore, and Ruth Moore.

Peggie was predeceased by her loving husband, Allan; her parents; her sisters, Florence & Dorothy; her brothers, Wilson, Walter & Douglas; grandson Billy and stepchildren Melvin Davy & Carolynn Haggerty.

Peggie was proud to be associated with the Royal Canadian Legion, being a lifelong member of The Legion Women’s Auxiliary #48. She loved ice curling and participating in bonspiels. In 2003, she won an eight ender in Bowsman as third on her team. At the Swan River Senior Centre, Peggie won first place in cribbage with a score of 904. Mixed seniors bowling was another activity that Peggie enjoyed. Peggie loved dancing and rarely missed attending a coffee house and was especially proud when her granddaughter Tiara played fiddle with the band.

While living in Lynn Lake, Peggie & Allan were foster parents to 52 babies after their discharge from hospital until they were well enough to return to their communities. One foster child, Eve Colomb, was raised by them from infancy until the age of 18.

Peggie loved her dogs and owned quite a few over the years. However, the best one was her last one- her beloved “Skippy” who became her “Raison D’etre” in her last few years.

Peggie will be laid to rest next to her loving husband, Allan, in Crandell Cemetery in Birch River. Her favourite song was “Too Old to Die Young” by Moe Bandy, and she certainly got her wish.
