Margaret (Peggy) Diane Jardine, 72, of Trenton, passed away December 23, 2018 in the Aberdeen Hospital. Born in New Glasgow on January 21, 1946, she was a daughter of the late Frederick and Catherine (MacLean) Chislett.
She was a homemaker until the 1980s when she trained as an LPN and went to work at High Crest Place in New Glasgow where she truly felt like she was answering her life’s call and making a difference in the lives of those seniors for whom she was caring. Failing health forced her to retire.
She is survived by her husband of 53 years, John F. Jardine; son Daniel (Gail), Trenton; daughters Jackie MacKean (Mike), Stellarton, and Lisa Adshade (Kevin) of New Glasgow; step-grandsons Jeff Bowser (Donna) and their children Georgia and Ali; and Corey Bowser (Taylor) and Corey’s children Jared, Eva and Lori-Lynn; sisters Bernadette (Joe) Hughes of Trenton and Marie (Chris) Lamey, also of Trenton; many nieces, nephews, grand-nieces and grand-nephews.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by daughter Cathy; sisters, Millie, Catherine (Toots), Elizabeth (Betty), Shirley, and Anderine; brothers, James (Jimmy) and Fred “Bud”.
No visitation by her request. Funeral will be held Thursday, Dec. 27 at 11 a.m. at R.H. Porter Funeral Home, 55 Almont Ave., New Glasgow.
