Thread Name: Obit: Penny Seeger (1943-1993)
Subject: RE: Obit: Penny Seeger
This from NY Times 23 DEC 2001:
"Mr. Cohen moved to Putnam Valley more than 35 years ago when the building where he lived in Lower Manhattan was demolished to make way for the World Trade Center. Also, his late wife, Penny Seeger Cohen, didn't want to raise their children in the city, and they both liked the idea of moving closer to her brother, the folk singer Pete Seeger and his wife, Toshi. (Another Seeger sibling, Mike, is Mr. Cohen's band mate in the New Lost City Ramblers.)"
Best wishes, Thomas.
