Marguerite ‘Peggy’ (Steele) Evans
Sydney Mines

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our dear wife, mother, grandmother and sister, Peggy Evans, on Thursday, June 25, 2020, surrounded by her loved ones, after a courageous battle with cancer.
Peggy was born to loving parents Colin Francis and Annie Mae (Handley) Steele.
Peggy was the heart of the home. Her passion was cooking and baking for all her family and friends. She especially loved baking with her granddaughter Jessica for all the holidays.
Peggy Married her husband Martin Evans on May 12, 1972, and together they raised their children Billy (Sherry), Duane (Kelly), Tanya (Billy Harris), and Denise (Aaron Penny). She is also survived by her sisters Kay (John MacIntyre), Liz (Levi Nippard), and Carolyn (Ernie Brown), and brothers Sandy (Arlene), Colin (Darlene), and Eddie (Denise). Also left to mourn are her brothers-in-law William (Button) Violet Evans and Art MacIntyre, sister-in-law Helen Hatcher, and many nieces and nephews.
Peggy was grandmother to William and Jessica Harris, Cole Green, her two special little boys, Malcolm and Darren Evans, Mark and Courtney Steele, Jeremy and Hannah, Stanley and Kayla Williams. It was something she embraced each and every day.
Besides her parents, Peggy was predeceased by her brother Ron, sisters Becky MacIntyre and Theresa Basker, and sister Mae (Edward) Forrest, Martin’s parents Martin and Millie Evans, brother-in-law Jackie, and Louise and Richard Morrison.
At this time, the family would like to thank everyone who helped Peggy through her journey along the way. Peggy is now with her Heavenly Family, who she truly loves.
There will be no visitation. Cremation has taken place. A private family service will take place at a later date. Donations in Peggy’s memory may be made to the Cape Breton Cancer Center. Words of comfort may be forwarded to her family at www.jmjobesfuneralhome.com
