Annan, Margaret Rose (Peggy) (Keefer nee McGannon) 1919-2011
Died peacefully on Sunday March 27, 2011, in Toronto. Peggy was in her 92nd year and is survived by her sister Josephine McRae of London, Ontario, four daughters Anne Keefer, Sally Wilcox, Mary-Jo Pitfield, Marnie Keefer, eleven grandchildren Matthew Long, Jessica Long, Sas Long, David Wilcox, Ryan Wilcox, Michael Wilcox, Ian Wilcox, Ward Pitfield, Keefer Pitfield, Marshall Pitfield, Connor Boggs and great grandchildren Osara Donnini Long and Lupo Donnini Long. Peggy is also survived by her step children David Annan and Rick Annan. She was predeceased by her husband Doug Annan, her former husband George Keefer and her sister Susan Carey of Calgary. Peggy grew up in Winnipeg, Manitoba where she attended St. Mary's Academy. She moved to Montreal to pursue a career in radio where she was the first female time rep in Canada for CFCF. She spent many years as Woman's Editor of CJAD. In the 70s she started the volunteer department of Catholic Family and Children's Services. It was in Montreal that she met and married George Keefer – together they raised their four daughters. They spent many happy summers at their cottage on Lake Echo near Morin Heights and many days sailing out of The Royal St. Lawrence Yacht Club. Thank you to the tender staff of The Briton House especially Lena and Belinda, who took such good care of our mother. A Memorial Mass will be held on Saturday April 2, 2001 at BLESSED SACRAMENT CHURCH (Yonge St. south of Lawrence) at 11:00 o'clock.
