Peggy was born on July 8, 1915 to Okanagan Landing pioneers, Richard
and Charlotte Peters. In 1936, Peggy married Andrew Hankey. The couple
traveled up the Cariboo and homesteaded there for a number of years.
They then moved to Sugar Lake where they lived and worked and were
involved with Fraser’s Lodge. In 1944, they moved to Lumby on Mabel
Lake Road where they farmed and worked. Later they retired on part of
the property. In 2005, Peggy sold the property and moved to Canterbury
Court in Vernon where she lived independently until July 2008, at which
time she moved to Creekside Landing in Vernon.
Peggy was an excellent cook. She was devoted to her family and friends,
never missing a special occasion. Peggy was a member of the Lumby
Pythian Sisters for over 60 years, and was an active member of St. James
Anglican Church in Lumby.
The family extends their gratitude to Dr. Philp, Rev. Ferrie, Penny Sault,
