Peg Weaver 1961 Amahl and the Night Visitors - Faribault Episcopal Cathedral
Margaret Glessner Weaver, June 3 1910 - Aug 10 2007, inspires through her participation in life at a variety of levels. Here in a photo from a book, The First Cathedral, Scott and Neslund, she is pictured on the floor of the cathedral practicing for the performance during the Christmas Season in 1961 at age 51. Peg had sung in Gilbert and Sullivan musicals at Findlay High School in Ohio and then was a member of the Oberlin Glee Club before soloing for the Broad Street Presbyterian Church at the Chicago Worlds Fair in 1934 from Dvorak's New World Symphony. She continued to sing and be flexible throughout her life, into her 90's a theme song we often sang "Look for the Silver Lining".
