Longtime Shasta County Democrat Margaret Earnest died in August at the age of 88.
Margaret was a champion of Democratic values, and never tired of standing up for fairness and basic human rights. She was a loyal volunteer, and a frequent commenter in local media with her beautifully reasoned letters to the editor.  In 2017, she was honored as the DCCSC’s 2017 Democrat of the Year, a well-earned accolade reflecting a lifetime of activism on behalf of working people.

We mourn the loss of this champion of human rights and political action and send condolences to her family, and all those who knew her.

In lieu of flowers, the family has suggested donations to a veterans group or animal rescue organization. A Celebration of Life will be held in the future, with information available on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/suzie.e.clark.7
