Peggy Shepperd

Peggy at her 101st birthday party

Very sad news this morning: Peggy Shepperd, our village’s oldest resident, passed away peacefully at her son John’s.

Peggy had been at the centre of life in Port Navas since she and her husband Douglas moved here in 1956. Together they published the definitive history of the village in 1994. Peggy produced a much expanded 2nd edition of  ‘The Story of Port Navas’ in 2016 just before her 100th birthday.

Peggy was a remarkable lady and we will all miss her greatly.
