Peggy Potter née Jamer 1932-07-23 - 2020-04-16

Passed away peacefully at age 87 in Buckingham, Quebec, Thursday, April 16, 2020 with family at her side. Daughter of the late Ida Booth and the late Daniel Watson Jamer. Predeceased by her beloved husband Charles (Pete) Potter, her brothers Daniel, Dick and Jim, and her sister Mary Ann. Much loved mother to Richard and Heather, cherished Grammy to Jamie-Lee. Loved by many, she leaves many nieces, nephews and friends to mourn. Many thanks to Dr. Melanie Lacasse and the staff of the Centre d’Hebergement Vallee de la Lievre for the care and the love, we will be forever grateful. Arrangements in the care of Cadieux Tubman Funeral Home, a service will be held at a later date to be followed by burial at St. Andrew’s Cemetery, Buckingham, Quebec. For those wishing, donations may be made to the Centre d’Hebergement Vallee de la Lievre, 111 Rue Gerard Gauthier, Gatineau, Quebec, J8L-3C9.

Born in Buckingham, she would spend most of her life there. She was a lifelong member of St.Andrew’s United Church, and for many years volunteered at the Boutique at the Buckingham Hospital. A loving wife, mother, grandmother and aunt, and a good friend to many. She saw the good in everyone and everything, and found happiness in the simple things in life.

The ten years she and Pete spent in the logging camp at Pine Lake and in Mont-Laurier were very special to them, and anyone who knew Mom and Dad were treated to many a story of those years.

Mom faced many battles in the last two and a half years with grace, spirit and determination, rest in the peace you so richly deserve, we love you.

    Heather and Richard. I extend my heartfelt condolences and the passing of your beloved mother known to the community as Peggy. I lived in the Bell/Kenny home 2 doors from your grandparents Ida and Dan Jamer and I worked with your father Pete at the MacLaren Co. All lovely people. Each year I go north on the Lievre….previously known as the “timber limits”…to fish. Dan Jamer and Pete Potter are still remembered and held in high esteem by the old timers who worked at Red Pine Depot.

    Dear Richard and Heather,
    I am very sorry to hear of your Mom’s passing. Though she was 10 yrs older, I have fond memories of her from BHS. I remember her being an accomplished athlete with great skills at track and field and can picture her going over the high jump. Basketball was another of her many skills. Over the years whenever I saw her she was so nice to chat with. My Deepest Sympathies to you both.

    For the past few years I made a habit of visiting Peggy when I would visit town during the summer. We had many great conversations, revisiting the historical past of life on George Street back in the day. I will miss her dearly but have many fond memories of our time together. My most sincere sympathies to Dick, Heather and all members of Peggy’s extended family. God bless you all.

    Heather & Richard — Colleen and I are saddened to hear of the recent loss of your dear Mother Peggy..
    Her passing brings to the fore many memories of happier times of mutual family gatherings on George Street..Peggy, sister Mary Ann, and brothers Jim, Dan and Dick all had such cheerful personalities , in keeping with their parents Ida and Dan,’it was always pure pleasure visiting their home … as a student in the mid- 1960s, I worked summers at Pine Lake depot on the upper Lievre timber limits..Pete Potter was the boss, he and Peg lived on site, and were highly respected by the men at the camps..Peggy was a pillar of the Buckingham community and her smiling face and cheerful demeanour will be missed by many
