Pegi Young Obituary

Pegi Young, U.S. born singer and song-writer has passed away at the age of 66 after a long battle with cancer. She was married to Neil Young for 36 years until their divorce in 2014. Together they have 2 children, daughter Amber, and son Ben. She was surrounded by her family and friends when she passed.

Pegi Young's musical career began in 1983 as a member of "The Pinkettes" who were the background vocalists for Neil Young's "Rock-a-Billy Shocking Pinks" tour. She continued her background performances for Neil on numerous tours throughout 20 years. She released 5 albums starting in 2007, including her latest album release in 2017 titled "Raw" following her divorce with Neil.

Most of Pegi's time was devoted to the Bridge School. A school founded by herself and Neil in 1986 designed to help children with severe physical and speech impairments.

Pegi is survived by her children with Neil — son Ben, and daughter Amber — as well as her ex-stepson Zeke and two grandchildren. Leave a message of sympathy on Pegi Young's commemorative page and light a candle to show your support.
