Born in Ebbwvale, Wales to a Canadian soldier Cecil Hustwayte and his wife Amy, a Welsh nurse, Peggy was brought to Canada as a baby. She grew up in Trail along with her younger brother and sister, and married Earle Bowes in 1944. Together they raised their daughter and son. She was very active in the Emmanuel Baptist Church —teaching Sunday School and in a number of women’s groups — most of her life. Peggy enjoyed meeting people, playing crib, cooking, gardening, crossword puzzles and reading. She traveled to Wales to meet her many relatives there and a few years later, visited her husband’s relatives in Nova Scotia. At age 88, she moved to the St Vincent’s Langara Residence in Vancouver.

Predeceased by her brother Bill, her sister Amy (Guidone) , brother-in-law Amerigo, her husband Earle, grandson Peter Schaub and son-in-law Jack Schaub.
