MONTPELIER Margaret Peg Mason Dwinell died on October 12, 2012, in Burlington, Vt.
She was born at home on April 6, 1916, in Randolph, Vt., to Edward H. and Mary M. Mason. She was educated in Randolph schools and later graduated from Webber College with a degree in business.
She was employed at National Life in Montpelier when she met her future husband, Bancroft Dwinell. They were married on August 19, 1939, in Randolph and made their home in Montpelier. They had three children, Bancroft Jr., James Mason and Jane Bancroft.
Peg spent time in volunteer work, but her true avocation was as an artist. She worked in many different mediums, oil painting, stenciling, theorem painting, quilting, braided rugs and hooked rugs. In her final years, she knitted hats and mittens for charity, keeping many children warm.
After her husband retired, they traveled extensively; she visited 56 countries over the years. Her husband passed away in 1996.
She is survived by her three children, Bancroft Jr. and his wife Elizabeth of Burlington, James of Norwich, and Jane and her husband Sky Yardley of Montpelier; her eight grandchildren, Thomas Dwinell, Mason Dwinell, Ashley Clapp, Mary Beth Zabowsky, Dana Dwinell-Yardley, Sayer Dwinell-Yardley, Harry Dwinell and Sophia Dwinell; and her seven great-grandchildren, Allison, Jake, Lilly, Skyler, Hayden, Michael Jr. and Nyah.
