Peggy Black, Alumna

August 12, 2018

With heavy hearts, we announce that Peggy Black passed away at the age of 99 on Sunday, August 12, 2018 at The Village of Winston Park. She was the beloved wife of John Sawyer (1975) for a short 29 years and the loving, devoted mother of her six children, as well as a grandmother, daughter and sister. 

Peggy was proud of her teaching career. She began teaching at Copper Cliff High School, after graduating from the University of Guelph and OISE at the University of Toronto, then moved on to Peterborough Collegiate where she met her husband. Peggy ended her career, of many years, teaching at St Mary’s High School in Kitchener, Ontario.

Peggy was gracious and kind, strong and loving and family meant everything to her. We have learned well from her example.

In Memoriam
