Farewell to Peggy Duke

Peggy Duke, “botanical illustrator par excellence,” peacefully found her way to the Green Garden above on April 1, 2021. Below is the beautiful obituary that her daughter Celia and friend Andrea wrote. I will deeply miss Peggy’s stories, happy hours, art discussions, and how she would correct my Latin plant name pronunciations. 🌿💕🌿

    What a lovely lady Peggy Duke was! So sad to hear of her passing, but what a privilege to have known her a little bit when working in Jim’s garden in years past. I will always treasure the botanical water colors I have of hers.
