Margaret (Peggie) Annabelle Pusztay (Jeffrey)

May 10, 1930 - January 21, 2018


On the evening of Sunday, January 21, 2018, surrounded by her loved ones, Margaret “Peggie” Annabelle Pusztay passed away at the East Kootenay Regional Hospital at the age of 87 1/2 years young.

Peggie was born in Edmonton, Alberta on May 10, 1930, the eldest daughter of three girls.  She married her beloved husband Emmery Pusztay and they were blessed with four children.  She lived in many places throughout her life – Alberta, B.C. and Honduras, Central America. Peggie became a resident of Ta Ta Creek in August of 1998 and owned the Ta Ta Creek Store. She also volunteered folding the Tri Village Buzz in the early 2000’s.

She was a wonderfully devoted wife, mother, Granni, auntie and friend. She was loved dearly by all of us.  Mom had a magnetism about her that drew people to her, both young and old.  Her gift was loving and accepting people as they were and they in turn loved her back.  Her legacy is an inspiration to us all and it lives on in her family.

Peggie loved the opera and live theatre and truly enjoyed playing the piano.  She had many other hobbies that included playing cards (double solitare, rummy), scrabble and crib and doing crossword puzzles, embroidery and knitting.

Left to mourn her passing are her children; Chris (Daysi), Maggie (Rob) and Clair (George). She also leaves her much loved grandchildren; Clair (Josh), Vanessa (Justin), Ellen, Cesar (Gaby), Jeff, Britt and her great grandchildren; Ceci and Ariel.  Peggie was predeceased by her son, Emmery {Jim} (1974); her husband Emmery (1999); her twin sisters Ailene (2016) and Eilene (2017) as well as her special cousin, Freddy (1983).  Peggie is survived by her brother-in-law Ed and numerous nieces and nephews throughout the world.  She also leaves behind her adopted grandchildren; Dartanion, Jayson, Phiefer, Rumour and Talon.

A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, May 5, 2018 at 120-7th Avenue South, Cranbrook BC V1C 2J4 (Evolution Tae Kwon-Do Club Hall) from 1:00 to 5:00 pm. Mom/Granni/Peggie loved bright colours, so please feel free if you wish, in wearing them to her Celebration of Life! In lieu of flowers, you may make a memorial donation to the Palliative Care Unit of the East Kootenay Regional Hospital (  As well, condolences may be left for the family at

Auntie Peggie, although I only recently had the privilege of meeting you in person I’ve known about you my whole life. As a child I imagined you living in an exotic place with my cousins and thought it was so cool.
I’m heartbroken that the 3 Jeffrey girls are no longer lighting up our world. It does make me happy to know that you girls are all together again even though I feel a huge void I also feel the legacy of your love through your amazing children my cousins.
I love you all very much!
