Speaking to Global News earlier this week, Leippi’s family explained that they attempted suicide that morning and had struggled with mental health over the years.
His daughter-in-law, Alyssa Leippi, said the company has been under stress in recent times, mainly due to the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Alyssa said a financial blow to the business over Thanksgiving resulted in a decline in Peg’s sanity.
The social media post said Peg died at 9:38 p.m. on Friday.
Leippi’s wish for his funeral is a big celebration, so the family have decided to postpone the service until spring 2022.
