A beloved Shawville councillor and devoted community member has passed away.
Councillor Margaret “Peg” Sheppard, known for her dedication to not only the town but more specifically its residents, passed unexpectedly on March 14.
“She was a great sister and one of the best,” said Patti Armitage, one of Sheppard’s sisters.
“She made me who I am,” said Ali Margaret Lewis, Sheppard’s daughter. “I owe her everything.”
Armitage, a resident of Richmond, Ont., said the outpouring from the Shawville community to her and their other sister, Ruth Barber, has been tremendous and wonderful.
Lewis said that the community has been generous with their condolences and the town’s response was overwhelming.
