FOSTER, Peggy Louise Foster   -  April 16, 1954 – May 6, 2022 

With a broken heart, Sarah announces the death of her mother, Peggy Louise Foster, in her 69th year, at Streamway Villa after a lengthy battle with early-onset dementia and mercifully short struggle with Covid-19.

Left to cherish her memory are her mother, Marion Foster, siblings Reid, Ann and Roy Allen, nephew Andy, daughter Sarah Dean (Joshua), grandsons Connor, Alex and Zachary Dean, and many beloved cousins. 

Peggy was preceded in death by her father, Roy Anderson Foster.  She will be sadly missed by her faithful pup, Polly the singing dog. 

Peggy touched many lives in her career as a reporter.  She was best known for her Port Hope Evening Guide column ‘Our Town’, in which she captured hundreds of community events, anniversaries and milestones.  Later, as a bedside volunteer, trainer, bereavement group facilitator and case coordinator for Northumberland Lakeshore Hospice, her exceptional empathy and care for the dying eased the burden of many Northumberland families.

Heartfelt thanks to the staff of Streamway Villa, Dr. Kwok and Dr. Lazaro at PRHC for their compassionate and dignified care over the past three years. 

Cremation has taken place.  In accordance with Mom’s wishes and to protect the health of her beloved friends and family, there will be no visitation. 

In lieu of flowers, donation to Community Care Northumberland – Hospice (905) 885-0466 would be gratefully accepted.
