Daisy Peterson Sweeney included in an interactive map of remarkable women of Quebec

Today, we celebrate the 102nd anniversary of the birth of Daisy Peterson Sweeney, who was recently included in an online interactive map of remarkable women of Quebec, created by the Québec Commission de toponymie.

The interactive map highlights more than 500 place names of 100 local women who have had an outstanding career, whether in the fields of health, education, business, unionism, social justice, science, arts or politics.

The family is delighted to have their mother honoured in this way. Please visit Femmes remarquables du Québec and scroll the alphabetical list of amazing women.

The interactive map is now listed on the Resources page.

On March 21, 2022 the Montreal Gazette published “History Through Our Eyes: Music teacher Daisy Sweeney, March 21, 1987.”
