Margaret H. McRory, Courthouse Clerk
Peg grew up in New Jersey and studied chemistry at Radcliffe College, the (then) all-female college affiliated with Harvard University. In 1941, she married George W. McRory, Jr., an officer in the US Army Air Corps (which became the US Air Force); their family grew to include three daughters, of whom Camilla is the youngest. Peg became a lobbyist for moderate and low income housing in Montgomery County, served as Administrative Aide to Councilwoman Elizabeth “Betty” Lee Scull, was hired as Housing Consultant by the County Council, and then spent three years working for the Community Ministry of Montgomery County (now InterfaithWorks), an organization dedicated to serving the poor in Montgomery County. Peg first became involved with our law firm by working as Courthouse Clerk, helped to conduct interviews with prospective coworkers, and always provided her perceptive guidance on the needs of our clients. She good-naturedly described her role with the firm as the “example” of the ever-changing needs of the elderly. We at the law firm thought of her as our official WOW: wise older woman. Unfortunately for the law firm and all others who had the honor of knowing Peg, she died on 03 November 2010 of acute myeloid leukemia as a result of chemotherapy she received more than twenty years earlier. Until a few hours before she died, Peg lived to the fullest and was an inspiring example to all who knew her.
