Jackson, Isobel Agnes

Isobel Jackson passed away peacefully at the Meaford Long Term Care Centre with her loving family by her side on Sunday, May 30, 2021 at the age of 88.

Born in Toronto on July 29, 1932, she was a daughter of the late Henry and Isobel (nee Coulter) Mitchell.

Isobel was the adored wife and best friend of Robert ‘Bob’ Jackson of Meaford. She was predeceased by her husband Lowell ‘Tim’ Pegg in 1991.

She was the kind, caring and much loved mother of Stuart Pegg and his wife Debbie of Collingwood.

Isobel was the proud and doting Grandma and Great Grandma of Melinda Liauba (John) of Oakville and their children Cameron and Alanna, and Grandma of Preston Pegg of Chatham.

She was predeceased by her loving sister Marlene Rosborough (late Claude) and will be fondly remembered by her niece and nephew, Dyan Oliver and Ryan Rosborough who both loved her dearly. Isobel always thought of others before herself.  She was an extremely kind hearted woman and a wonderful mother. She bought Stuart everything he ever asked for ‘except for a set of drums!’ She spent many years working for the Town of Meaford as a secretary and met many lifelong friends during her time with the town. She was a proud member of the Eastern Star and enjoyed her time volunteering with the Georgian Theatre.

Due to the present Covid-19 restrictions, a private family visitation will take place at Ferguson Funeral Home and a private graveside service will be conducted at Lakeview Cemetery in Meaford.

    Bob, we are so sorry to hear of Isobel’s passing. It seems like eons ago that we became friends, after working alongside Isobel at the Town Hall municipal office. We sure had a lot of fun together back then! She truly was a kind, loving lady and we always admired the mutual love and respect you had for each other. You were such a dedicated, loving husband, which was so apparent when we watched you interact with Isobel over the last few years. We will be thinking and praying for you during this most difficult time. Love, Jim and Wendy

    To Bob, Stuart, Debbie and family
    We are remembering Isobel and her beautiful smile. Isobel loved and treasured her family and Bob often sharing stories of pride and good times. Isobel enjoyed gifting others with personal flower arrangements that she had made to celebrate their occasion or just because to make their day special. Through the years working for the Town of Meaford she was the “right arm” assistant to so many, worked tirelessly on the Meaford Centennial celebration and her friendly ways were always appreciated by everyone. Isobel was always remembered and missed at our annual parties when she could no longer come. Treasure your memories and know that she loved you.
    Sincere condolences, John and Marg Acres and family

    Our sincere condolences to our Brother in-law Stuart (and Debbie) in the loss of his mom.
    Many a Kerr gathering included Isobel and Bob over the years.
    Isobel was so talented with arranging flowers and making corsages for events and celebrations, if memory services me… her favourite colour was purple!
    Bob our sympathy goes out to you as well in the loss of your life partner.
    Preston & Melinda(and family), we are thinking of you both in the passing of your grandma.
    Your thoughts and prayers are with you all at this difficult time.
