Kathleen Elizabeth (Peggy) Bird

July 21, 1923 - April 9, 2013


It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our mom Kathleen Elizabeth (Peggy) Bird. Mom passed away peacefully with her family by her side at 89 years young. Predeceased by her loving husband for 65 years Duncan and daughter Marnie Graham, she will be greatly missed by her sons Bill (Nancy), Richie (Linda), Peter (Helena), Tom (Letha) and her best son-in-law Gord Graham. She will be sadly missed by her grandchildren Michael (Vicki), Bryant (Angel), Stephen (Courteney), Kristin (Dennis), David (Michelle), Andy (Breanne), Elmer (Jolene), Charlie (Cassandra), Mickey, and Katie, and 11 great-grandchildren.

Born in Edmonton, Mom came to Powell River in 1945 as a new war bride. Life was quite a change for a city girl to the country life with no running water or indoor plumbing, but Mom was able to adapt. With the help of some very good friends Mom raised the five of us and many others. With her fresh bread and cookies it seemed the house was always full.

Peggy enjoyed life; there were all her pen pals, the goat club, apple-core club, dance and card club along with Toastmistress Club, Wildwood Ratepayers, and Powell River Historical Museum and Archives. Later she was known as Granny Bird at James Thomson Elemetary School, with many Wildwood school children under her wings. Mom also organized the Wildwood Grannies for planning the May Day teas at the school. Granny will always be remembered for her monthly letter writing to family, friends and also to all the shut-ins at the United Church.
