Peggy Harper, tireless community activist and Mechanicsville resident, has died

Florida native served on nearly every board possible

M.M. "Peggy" Harper, a longtime community activist who served on what seemed like every board possible during her more than 30 years living in Atlanta, died earlier this week.

Sources tell CL Harper was in declining health yet remained active in her community activism. Efforts to reach a family member were unsuccessful.

According to a bio (PDF) attached to one of the Harper's many nominations to a city board, the Florida native had a diverse career that including everything from helping build MARTA's east-west line to managing projects in the academic and corporate worlds. In 1989 she participated in Agnes Scott College's Return-To-College program and graduated with a degree in Economics.

But it's safe to say Harper will perhaps best be known for her community service.
