Longtime Halifax peace activist Muriel Duckworth has died.

Her family sends the following short obituary:

Muriel Helena Duckworth, 1908-2009. Surrounded by her family, she died with dignity and grace on August 22, 2009. With love and respect we bid farewell to our mother, grandmother, great grandmother, friend and champion of peace and justice. We will remember her words: "WAR IS STUPID! Only love can save the world." She is survived by her three children, Martin, Eleanor and John, and their families. In lieu of flowers, please contribute to: the Oxfam Canada Jack and Muriel Duckworth Fund for Active Global Citizenship; Voice of Women (Nova Scotia); Canadian Friends Service Committee; Maison Emmanuel Centre Éducatif (Quebec). A celebration of her life will be announced at a later date.
