Gwendolyn Alma (Gwen) Pegg, in her 80th year, died at Hospice Simcoe in Barrie on October 30, 2019, following a graceful and courageous battle with kidney cancer.
Born May 14, 1940 in Newmarket to Fred and Winnifred Knights, she married David Pegg of Keswick on June 22, 1968. Together, they built and operated Living Water Farms in Keswick until Dave’s passing on June 27, 1984. Gwen continued to run the farm for another 4 years before returning to the medical profession, where she worked until her retirement.
Gwen was an active and dedicated member of Keswick Christian Church, which now sits on a plot of land she donated from the original Living Water Farms home acreage, until she moved to Barrie in 1999. She then became an active and dedicated member of Bethel Community Church in Barrie, where she served with heartfelt love and passion until her passing.
Gwen is survived by her sons Matthew Pegg (Katherine) of Toronto, Jonathan Pegg (Amanda) of Barrie and their children Connor, Colton and Alexander, her sister Doris Wadsworth of Barrie and her brothers Murray (Barb) Knights of Bobcaygeon and Jim (Ann) Knights of Newmarket.
A celebration of life and memorial service will be held on Thursday November 28 at 11:00 AM at the Bethel Community Church, located at 128 St. Vincent Street in Barrie, Ontario. A reception will follow the service and all who knew and loved Gwen are welcome.
