It is with great sadness we announce the passing of Peggy Pullen. She was born in 1930 to Phyllis and Henry Pullen in Prince Rupert, BC and died peacefully on December 9, 2020 in White Rock, BC. She was predeceased by her parents, her sister and brother in-law Betty and Ken Hall, and niece Susan Hall. She is survived and will be greatly missed by her two nephews - Howard (Bronwyn) and David, great-nephew Alexander and great-niece Kathryn, as well as many friends and former colleagues. After Peggy's basic education in Prince Rupert, she chose a career in nursing, receiving her RN from Royal Jubilee Hospital in Victoria. Over the next few years she nursed in a variety of hospitals . One of her early positions was at the Grenfell Mission in St. Anthony 's, Newfoundland, at the time an outpost without land access. After getting her Public Health Nursing Diploma (PHN) her first PHN position was in Lillooet, BC. At this time she had a Pilot's Licence but no Driver's Licence so the townsfolk volunteered to drive her throughout the district until she was able to transport herself. Peggy remained in Public Health for the rest of her career at various PH Units in BC. She finished her long career as PHN Supervisor at Boundary Health Unit in Surrey. Along the way she attained her BSN (USC) and her Master's in Nursing (U of WA). When Peggy retired in 1989 she joined a hiking club, took up watercolour painting, and frequented the White Rock library. She now had time to socialize with many friends - mostly by luncheons. She led a full, exciting, and satisfying life. Peggy was an inspiration to all. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic there will be no service at this time. When it is safe to meet again, we look forward to joining together to share our stories and memories and celebrate Peggy's life.
You are invited to leave a personal message of condolence for the family.
Peggy lived her life well, and was an inspiration to me in so many ways. She will be truly missed by myself and my family, and will forever be in our hearts and minds. God speed Peggy. Howie, Alex, & Kathryn Hall, & Bronwyn Richards
