In Memory of Peggy Yoder

We are sad to announce that Margaret “Peggy” Elizabeth Yoder—a founder of our pilot Chapter in PA—passed away December 17, 2021.

In 2012, Peggy invited fiber artists, gardeners and Tasha fans to a meeting in her Huntingdon, PA home, starting the first Chapter of the Tasha Tudor Society. “Without Peggy’s initiative and perseverance,” writes Julia Marsh, “Chapters might never have been formed, and we would never have met all the wonderful folk with whom we’ve joyfully shared so many pleasant hours. We will greatly miss Peggy’s enthusiasm and guidance.” 

A remembrance celebration for Peggy will be held Saturday, March 19 in Huntingdon, PA; friends may also join via Zoom. To attend the Zoom celebration or express condolences, please contact Julia at for more information.
