Sad news! Margaret Lobenstine died unexpectedly in her sleep on August 9, 2015. You can read an excerpt from her obituary below:

Margaret Neisser Lobenstine (1943-2015)

Amherst—Margaret Neisser Lobenstine, a peace & justice activist, published author of The Renaissance Soul, insightful life coach, ardent teacher, and devoted family member and friend, died peacefully in her sleep on Sunday, August 9.

Margaret Lobenstine was raised outside of Washington, D.C. and one of her earliest political experiences was attending the 1963 March on Washington. She continued actively fighting against racism, opposing the Vietnam War, doing community organizing, and working at an alternative press. She spoke out against child abuse and violence against women. More recently she risked arrest defending Springfield homes against foreclosures and joined marches about Black Lives Matter and climate change.

A Renaissance Soul, Ms Lobenstine’s life went in many directions. After graduating from Swarthmore College with a political science major, she got a Masters in Education, and taught at the NYU Reading Institute. She was a pioneer in the field of Bed and Breakfast Inns, and later a pioneer Life Coach. She worked as a Regional Master Trainer in the Commonwealth Literacy Corps. She was a motivational speaker and a trainer, on a wide variety of topics. She succeeded as a published author, and also had an unpublished novel.

Ms. Lobenstine loved telling stories, making people chuckle, connecting folks with things that excited them, reading, creating celebrations, mastering silent auctions, floating at Puffer’s Pond, ?watching water sparkle at the Quabbin, greeting people with huge hugs, lovingly helping people to love themselves, glowing in the Alps, and figuring out creative, alternative solutions to almost any problem. She reveled in chocolate and German marzipan. Her brothers and her in-laws mattered a lot to her. She was known as S.A.M. (Silly Aunt Margaret) by her many nieces and nephews, and grand-nieces and nephews.

Beyond everything else was her enormous love for her husband of fifty years, and for her twin daughters, Heather and Lori, in whom she took great pride and joy. She talked, listened, asked questions, laughed, and beamed at all three of them.
