Poppy Pepper


I was born in 1922 in Burnaby BC. I married in 1942. We had five children, one girl and four boys.
My marriage ended in 1966. My children lived with me, educated and on their own.
I had my own small slipcover business before retiring. I researched my family genealogy and published it in 1997. Next I wrote my autobiography 2012.
I survived cancer in 1970 and studied natural health. At present, I have a book in progress outlining its history. I have had other interests including hiking in BC, skiing and cycling.
