Obituary of Peggy Rudniski

Margaret Elizabeth Rudniski (nee Duncan)

1933 – 2023

Margaret Elizabeth Rudniski, known affectionately as Peggy, gracefully departed from this world on October 4, 2023, at the remarkable age of 90. Her departure leaves behind so many cherished memories and a legacy of warmth and kindness. She was the heart of our family.

Peggy was born in the Brandon Hospital and lived much of her life on the family farm in Moline, Manitoba. She had a passion for the outdoors and her horses. From an early age, Peggy was an avid horsewoman, raising and showing her horses throughout her younger years and continuing to share her love of riding with her children and grandchildren. In 1951, she married Kaz and they farmed for 56 years in the Moline district. The first year of their married life was spent in Toronto where their daughter, Patricia was born. She and Kaz returned to their first love of farming within the year.

Peggy’s first career was in banking with the Royal Bank. She was also the Postmistress and Co-op Store Manager in Moline for 1968-1979. Peggy was greatly involved in community throughout the years; leading and supporting 4H Clubs and the Women’s Institute.

Peggy loved travelling and was blessed in their retirement years enjoying the winter months in Arizona, Texas, and Florida with her husband. Throughout their life together, Kaz’s fiddle music was an ongoing joy. Peggy was his number one fan and they were frequent participants at many musical events.

Peggy was a devoted wife, mother, gramma, and great gramma. She was predeceased by her husband Kaz in 2009, her daughter Pat, and her grandson Dan.

Peggy will be lovingly missed and remembered by her sister, Corinne (Glenn); her daughters, Chris (Jim) and Lori (Warren). Peggy's legacy also shines brightly through her beautiful grandchildren and great-grandchildren who were a constant source of joy in her life: Kim, Brad, Tamara, Carleigh, Jimmy, Whitney, Zachary, Delaney; great grandchildren, Ace, Abby, Pilot, Penn, Austin, Olivia, Poet, Jake, Derick and Coyote. Her love and warmth have left an indelible mark on us all.

Celebration of Peggy’s Life will be held at Brockie Donovan Chapel, 332-8th Street Brandon, MB, on Saturday, May 18, 2024 at 1:30 p.m. A private family interment will take place at the Rapid City Cemetery prior to the service. If friends so desire, memorial donations may be made to the Canadian Cancer Society, 55 St. Clair Avenue West, Suite 300, Toronto, ON, M4V 2Y7.
