Faith Petric, Activist/Folksinger/SF Icon, Dies at 98

Through her life, Faith was many things: a mother, a wife, a shipfitter, a Wobbly and a peace striker. She worked in the San Joaquin Valley with with the Farm Security Administration helping migrant workers, marched with the Civil Rights movement in Selma, visited Russia as part of a peace delegation, floated down the Amazon, and solo-backpacked around the Europe. She was godmother to several generations of musicians that passed through the San Francisco Folk Music Club.
