Elvia Thompson, Annapolis Maritime Museum Board Member, Annapolis, March 22nd, 2008 2:49 pm, United States of America toggle

Peg's passing leaves an unfillable void in the community and in our lives. Everyone who knew her has been inspired by her positive attitude about all that life can throw at you.

She was one of the kindest, most generous people I have ever known. And she never ceased to surprise us.

I will never forget a meeting of the Annapolis Maritime Museum board, just a day or two after Hurricane Isabel tore holes McNasby's. We were all so gloomy, feeling that the future of the Museum, for which we had all (and especially Peg) worked so hard was at an end.

Peg was the first to speak. I was astounded when she said, "This could be the best thing that ever happened to us."

She had a vision and knew that while we couldn't take back the wind and water the setback would make us stronger and more determined. It would also make the community realize what a resource the Museum is, and how important is to preserve and teach kids and adults about our maritime heritage.

We are about to start reconstruction of McNasby's. It is a shame that Peg won't be there, smiling, immaculately dressed in a starched white shirt, jauntily wearing a hardhat and holding a ceremonial shovel. I know she will be there in spirit, watching "her baby" come to life.

Fairwinds, Peg. We miss you terribly.
