Remembering Peggy Traub

Posted on: January 15th, 2014 by teamlpac

LPAC is saddened to learn that our Board member, friend and champion in the fight for women’s rights and LGBT equality, Margaret ‘Peggy’ Traub, has passed away after a long battle with breast cancer.


Peggy was a part of LPAC from its first informal meetings to her critical role in helping to create and lead the organization as a Founding Board member. Her commitment to women’s leadership fueled her vision for LPAC to grow into a powerful network of women who advocated for equality and supported each other.


Peggy had many facets.  She was a successful business entrepreneur, co-founding and building Adesso, a devoted family member, an activist committed to social justice, and a philanthropist. Her passion for equality, and the generosity she and her spouse Phyllis Dicker showed through their community service, support for many groups, and scholarships awarded to LGBT young people, are among many legacies she leaves.


LPAC will forever be indebted to her leadership and we will deeply miss her good humor and guidance.


Here are a few of LPAC’s favorite photos and memories with Peggy:


Peggy was a part of our “I Am LPAC” campaign, and recorded a video in 2012:
