In 1953 she married Grant and set up a home in Pointe Claire, QC (Valois), where she saw her children safely through school/Sunday School and University.

She enjoyed crafts, sewing for her girls, and travelling the world.
In 1978 Peggy and Grant moved to Scarborough, ON. where they continued their devotion to their children and granddaughters. They acquired a small, active business, where Peggy became the dedicated accountant and chief customer service manager. They retired together in late 1997, to enjoy their families.
