The Centro de Desarrollo Jocotepec (CEDEJO) mourns the loss of Margaret Grace Peasley, who died recently at the age of 98.
She was a greatly loved and admired philanthropist who touched the lives of many in our communities since making Jocotepec her home in 1972.
We are very grateful for her contribution towards the education of local women and young people through the constant financial assistance and moral support she gave to CEDEJO for more than 30 years. We extend our deepest sympathy to her children, grandchildren and all those who were close to her. May she rest in peace.
Sylvia Flores, CEDEJO founding director
