In honor of his beloved wife, Alex Pagan has shared the following:
My wife, Margot Owens Pagan, died on Thursday, May 21, 2020, at the age of 73
She grew up really shy, but she had a wonderful intellect, and warm, sweet heart. Later she grew to be outgoing, with a sharp, dry, humorous wit. She graduated from Syracuse and Pace universities. Through a fairly tumultuous life, she was terrific at whatever she did; she was journalist, publisher, author, and, ultimately, an incredible therapist. Words like: admire, respect, and love, were used by her patients, colleagues, friends, and family (a few other words by one or two folks).
Margot loved life, her family, people, the arts, good clothes, the Rolling Stones, the English language; and most thankfully, she loved me. Oh, and she could curse like a sailor.
I will love, revere, and miss her, until we are together again, eternally.
She is survived by her family; myself, Alex; children: Dirk, Erik, Jessica; Justin; brother, Bill; and six grandkids.
Cremation will be by her request. Because of the pandemic, there will be no service or memorial at this time. We will have a memorial gathering to celebrate her life at a later date.
Donations in her name to United Hospice of Rockland (hospiceofrockland.org) would be a wonderful way to remember her. While I cared for her, they were wonderful people upon whom I could rely.
