Peggy was a previous resident of Oxbow, Regina, Beaubier, and Wolseley Saskatchewan.
She made the most important decision of her life at the age of 12 when she accepted Jesus as her Lord and Savior. This decision to serve Christ gave her a special interest in people and their interests.
Peggy spent her life in ministry helping children and youth and she enjoyed being one of them. She often talked with family of her heart’s desire to have a new rocking chair in Heaven and care for all the aborted babies.
Some of her hobbies included gardening, loving and caring for animals, playing and watching curling, puzzles, cooking and baking her saskatoon pies.
Norm and Peggy pastored many churches together. Beaubier Pentecostal Church, Calvary Community, Edmonton, Alberta, co-founded Wolf Creek Circle Square Ranch, New Life Christian Centre in Wolseley, Saskatchewan, and Calvary Community in Edmonton, Alberta. Their present focus is Itinerant Ministries International with a mission’s focus of Bible training centres and seminaries in Ukraine as well as “Uncle Norm” children’s radio in Liberia, Rawanda and the Middle East.
