Peg McBride LIFE CELEBRATION August 12th

Come One, Come All to celebrate Peg’s life
POTLUCK  11am   on August 12th
Caspar Community Center
Peg McBride passed away Sunday evening, June 4. She was 1 month shy of 92 years old.

On Thursday, June 1, Peg enjoyed a day in her garden and dinner & dessert with friends who were staying in her cottage. Friday morning she went to the Mendocino Coast Hospital ER and was diagnosed with an aneurism of the aorta. In keeping with her wishes, Peg opted not to be transported to Santa Rosa for a high risk surgery. She made a choice to stay in the hospital’s hospice family suite for comfort care where we could all be gathered and where IV pain meds could be administered.

Peg remained alert through Saturday. She wasn’t in pain and the hospital staff did a great job caring for her (and for us as we kept round-the-clock vigil!) All five of her children made it to her bedside (even Jim and Jiggs from Oregon, and Rebecca from Switzerland!). Peg was surrounded by her children, grandchildren, great-grandchildren and close friends as she took her last breaths Sunday evening. Peg’s passing happened just as she wished.

I know you and many of the Pacific Textile Arts community knew Peg when she was active as a weaver, so wanted you to know. A local memorial in Fort Bragg will be planned sometime later in the summer.
(Peg’s daughter-in-law)
