Sad News


It is with sadness that I pass along the news that Margaret (Peggy) Kelleher passed away on Friday night. Peggy loved our guild and was instrumental in its formal incorporation. She was passionate about all types of quilting, an eternally enthusiastic student. She was reluctant to give up her position as vice president while coping with illness.

Visitation hours will be held at Moriarty Funeral Home in Montclair on Tuesday,  May 6 from 3-5PM and 7-9PM. A funeral mass will be held at St. Cassian’s in Upper Montclair.

I will update this post when there are more details about the mass.

For those who didn’t have the pleasure of knowing Peggy, or for anyone who wants to remember her, click here for an inspiring Q&A that she did on our old blog. She made the name tag that I wear at each meeting, and I think of her every time I read the message she wrote on the back of it: “Find your happy.”

We will miss her terribly.
