It is with profound sadness that we announce the peaceful passing of Kristen at the Chatham-Kent Hospice on Saturday, October 26, 2019 at the age of 47.
Beloved wife of John Pegg for 23 years. Loving mother to Brayden Pegg (Tara Tricker) and Emma Pegg. Adoring Grandma to Aria Rose Pegg. Loved daughter of Reade and Sherrie Spence.
Cherished sister of Melanie Spence-Ariemma (Vince) and Jason Spence (Shawna). Daughter-in-law to Dennis Pegg (Ann) and Anne Goslin. Sister-in-law to Chris Pegg (Sara) and Mike Pegg (Patty Kim).
Aunt to Liam and Ryan Spence, Henry and Tommy Pegg, and Ben, Katelyn and Maiya Pegg. Fondly remembered by many aunts, uncles, cousins and friends. Above all else, Kristen was a wife and a mom and loved spending time with her family. She was immensely proud of her children, Brayden and Emma, and all their accomplishments.
Kristen worked for many years at the Gable Reese Rotary Pool in Blenheim and was the Supervisor of Aquatic Services for Chatham-Kent. Over her life and career she touched and impacted many lives through her friendship, and will always be remembered for her kindness, strength and determination. She is truly loved by everyone that knew her and will be forever missed.
A special thanks to Dr. L. Prins, Dr. K. Howson-Jan and to the many other doctors and staff at the London Health Sciences Centre, London Regional Cancer Program and the Chatham-Kent Hospice for their compassionate care. She will be remembered with visitation on Monday, November 4, 2019 from 2:00pm - 5:00pm and 6:00pm - 9:00pm at McKinlay Funeral Home, 76 Main St. E. in Ridgetown. In accordance with Kristen’s wishes a private service will be taking place with an interment at Botany Cemetery.
In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Kristen can be made to the Chatham-Kent Hospice Foundation or to the Blenheim Blast Swim Team.
