Peggy McGeary lost her life following a tragic collision in which she was struck while riding her bicycle on Paterson Plank Road, near the Union City/Jersey City border.
She was well known in the Hoboken community, having worked as a talented artist and quilter, creating a commemorative quilt for the city’s 150th anniversary—which was displayed among other of her items in an exhibit at the Hoboken Historical Museum in 2007.
Hoboken Historical Museum is hosting a memorial event organized by her friends on Sunday, January 26, at 4 p.m. All are welcome, and encouraged to bring food and beverage to share.
Meanwhile, McGeary’s family and friends are hosting a sale of her studio contents on Thursday, Friday and Saturday, Jan. 23-25, from 10 am – 6 pm, at the Yardley building, 600 Palisades Ave., in Union City. Fabric, sewing supplies and more will be sold on a cash basis, on behalf of her estate.
