Obituary: Peggy Rae Sapienza

Fan Peggy Rae Sapienza (b.Peggy Rae McKnight, 1944 ) died on March 22, about a month after undergoing heart surgery. Peggy Rae, who was married to Bob Pavlat from 1963-1983 and to John Sapienza from 1999 until her death, chaired Bucconeer, the 1998 Worldcon (my first). She was long active in con-running and fanzine publishing. She was a driving force behind much of Washington and Baltimore fandom, and has chaired or co-chaired several recent Nebula Award Weekends. She helped create the modern exhibition concourse at Worldcons and in 2012, she was the fan guest of honor at Chicon 7.
