Friends Couple Enrichment received the news of the death of our dear Friend Peg Pearson on August 23, 2018.
Peg and Nils Pearson trained as Couple Enrichment leaders in 1995 and immediately began leading workshops. Those couples who trained with them experienced them as richly generous. Those of us whom they taught and mentored are grateful to have witnessed their love and presence. They were truly a gift to many people. They remind us all to never neglect to tell our partners how much we love and care for them.
Shortly after Peg’s diagnosis with ALS they were at a leaders meeting at a summer gathering of Friends General Conference. A Friend remembers: “We spent that session gathered around them as they dialogued. It showed how being faithful to the dialogue in the small things allows for transformation in the big and difficult things in our lives. They were incredible models to us.”
We are saddened that Peg and Nils encountered the travails they have. We so admire the grace with which they weathered the storms within the loving embrace of their family.
We remember Peg as a live wire and a wonderful spirit; a treasure we are grateful to have known.
We continue to hold Peg’s family, and especially Nils, in the Light.
For Friends Couple Enrichment,
Michael Green, Clerk
