With deepest regret, we must announce that Peggy Gross, the 2012-2013 President of the Gadsby’s Tavern Museum Society passed away suddenly on March 26th.
Peggy was an amazing woman, a quiet force who loved and was very engaged with her wonderful Wisconsin family of six children and 20 grandchildren. She also was passionate about historic preservation and held leadership positions in several organizations which support education and historic resources in Alexandria. Before serving as this year’s GTMS President, she had been a member of the GTMS Executive Board for several year. Her outstanding organizational skills made her an asset for both the State Department and several volunteer groups, especially GTMS. Her knowledge of such important but arcane topics as Robert's Rules of Order, constitution-writing, and the intricacies of applying for membership in the Combined Federal Campaign served the Society and the Museum very well. Peggy will be sorely missed.
The family's obituary announcement can be found in the Wausau Wisconsin Daily Herald
Gadsby’s Tavern Museum will host a Memorial Service in Peggy's honor
at 2:00PM on Thursday, May 23rd.
Steve Frietas, the 2012-2013 GTMS Vice President, will take on the remainder of Peggy’s term.
