Peggy Colleen Perciasepe

June 27th 1959- June 7th 2021


Peggy passed away peacefully on June 7, 2021, at the age of 61 at Princess Margaret Hospital in the Palliative Care Unit. Predeceased by her mother Isabel McLean Olesen (February 22, 1977), and Sister Diane Surkos (December 29, 2016).

Loving mother to her children Elyse and Jonathan and son-in-law Hugh Darlington. Beloved daughter and sister of Ejnar Olesen, Donna, Linda, and brother-in-law Michael and Bruno. Warm friend to many, including the father of her children Frank. Peggy was so many things to so many people, aunt, great-aunt, cousin, who loved and cherished her.

Peggy loved going to Blue Jays games with her family, enjoyed creating art, dragon boating with RBC in her younger years, and writing poetry. She had such a passion for life and loved to travel with her family and friends. She loved her job at Sparkrock and her colleagues and clients. Peggy will be fondly remembered by everyone whose life she touched with her infectious smile, laugh, and her free spirit that would light up any room she was in.
