Meet Margaret P. (Peg) Price

Posted on November 23, 2020 at 3:10 PM by Denise Cartina

"Margaret (Peg) Price was a Naperville resident from 1967 to her passing in April 2020. She was a former Naperville City councilwoman and Naperville mayor from 1983-1991. She was the first woman to regularly attend Rotary Club of Naperville meetings. In 1987, Peg joined Rita Harvard to become one of the first two women to officially join the club. She also started the State of the City Address and began the planning for the Naperville Municipal Center and Naperville’s water utility. Throughout her life, she was active with many organizations, including the League of Women Voters, Naperville Area Homeowners Confederation, and many others."
