Peg Leippi was seriously injured after a fall on the morning of December 11 and was taken to the hospital.
Speaking to Global News earlier this week, Leippi’s family shared that she attempted suicide that morning and has struggled with her mental health for years.
Her daughter-in-law, Alyssa Leippi said the business has experienced stress recently, mainly due to the impact of COVID-19 Disease.
Alyssa said the financial blow to the business over Thanksgiving took a toll on Peg’s mental health.
The social media post said Peg passed away at 9:38 p.m. Friday.
Leippi’s wish for her funeral was one big one, so the family decided to hold off holding the funeral until spring 2022.
Peg’s Kitchen will be closed on Mondays to allow staff and families time to relax.
One GoFundMe Page set up by Alyssa to assist Peg recovery received $62,000 of its $150,000 target.
