74, of Falmouth. It is with great sadness that the family announce the passing of Leona, more commonly known as “May”, on Thursday, August 23, 2018. May passed away peacefully surrounded by family members in the Hants Community Hospital early Thursday morning.
Born in Windsor on November 8, 1943, she was the daughter of the late Reta Aker and Herbert Peach.

Also surviving are her siblings, Judy (Ken) Carr, Bonnie (Donald) Peach, Lloyd Marr, Janet Marr, Donna Duncanson, Linda Lunn, Laura (Roger) Read, and Loretta (Tim) Purcell.
Besides her parents, May was predeceased by brothers, Wilbur Peach and Allan Lunn; sister, Karen Peach.
