Dear Friends of Grandma Aggie,
On Wednesday, November 27th, our precious ally and grandmother, Agnes Baker Pilgrim, suffered complications following heart surgery for an aortic aneurism. With family at her side, she transitioned to her next journey. Now her brilliance shines from the “star nation” that she often spoke of.
Beyond our days of holy grief, Grandma Aggie’s inspirational ways will continue to feed our thoughts and deeds. We are so fortunate to have our memories of this truly exceptional human being. We will never forget her passionate love for all beings on Earth and the wisdom she shared so generously.
In-depth obituaries were published on the front pages of the Medford Mail Tribune and Grants Pass Courier. And a lengthy Associated Press piece appeared in the New York Times and Washington Post! [Click on the blue button above.]
Grandma Aggie left a remarkable legacy of teachings for us. I think you’ll enjoy these two 2-minute video interviews, filmed by Ralph Bowman at the Takelma pit house behind the Kerbyville Museum and at a Salmon Ceremony by Ti’lomikh Falls.
Her family would love to hear from you. Send messages c/o daughter Nadine Martin at 1036 SW K St., Grants Pass, Oregon, 97526.
On Sat. Jan. 11, 2020 (1pm) the family will host a public
Celebration of Life for Grandma Aggie.
Josephine County Fairgrounds Pavilion, Grants Pass, Oregon.
Bring fruit or a dessert to share.
David West will serve as the Voice for the Family.
Volunteers welcome to help set up chairs on Friday, Jan. 10 at 3:30pm
