Marguerite "Peg" Hebden

November 6, 1926 — August 28, 2018

Marguerite (Peg) Ann Hebden passed away peacefully at home in Melvin Village NH on August 28th, 2018 surrounded by family and friends. She had a strong will and enjoyed life so much she was kicked out of hospice three times! She and her late husband, Ted, were looking for an adventure when they bought the Melvin Village General Store in 1973. They learned a new business, settled in quickly and became engaged in many community groups. She was very active in the Melvin Village Community Church, serving as deacon, choir member, fair organizer, and vacation bible school puppeteer. Always ready and eager to perform, she sang with the Sweet Adelines and at numerous Hikers Club events. As a docent she enjoyed ruling the second floor at the Castle in the Clouds on Sunday afternoons while Ted watched football. As a volunteer, her wonderful smile, joyous spirit and faith brought comfort when she visited hospice patients. Her love for bridge games could never be satiated. The bounty of her lovingly tended gardens was often shared with others. Peg was born in Philadelphia PA to Marie and Harry Nuss on Nov 6, 1926, the youngest of three daughters. She is survived by her son, Stephen, daughter Natalie and her partner Paul King, daughter, Meredith, grandson, Evan Schafer and his wife Julia Schafer, granddaughter, Gabby Hebden-Pearl, her cat Mio and four grandpets, Marty, A. Dora Belle, Roo, and Bug. She is preceded in death by her husband, Ted, her parents, and sisters Marri and Marcia. We would like to extend a huge hug of gratitude to her long term caregivers who kept her so happy at 48 Sodom Road for many years and to the exceptional staffs of the Central NH VNA and Peabody Home in Franklin, NH who kept her comfortable during her last weeks. A memorial service will be planned for early fall. Her cremains will be interred at The Melvin Village Community Church.
