Margaret ‘Meg’ Eileen Finn

Margaret “Meg” Eileen Finn, born Dec. 17, 1975, died unexpectedly while traveling to China on Tuesday, Nov. 13, 2018.

Meg was the daughter of doctors David and Martha Finn. She was a graduate of Kent School in Connecticut and Harvard University. After living in Boston and Los Angeles, she returned to her roots in Williamsport–the town that she loved.

She recently assumed the role of executive director of the Lycoming Arts Council and was working diligently to promote the collaboration of Williamsport’s rich art community and downtown businesses. She was on the board of the Uptown Music Collective, a member of Kiwanis and committed to Susquehanna Greenways and its development of our regional beauty.

Meg loved theater, music and engaging conversation. She was a passionate animal advocate. Her enthusiasm and compassion for others will be missed in the community. Her family is heartbroken by her early death.

To our FB community, on behalf of the Finn and Straiton families, we wish to thank you from the depth of our souls for the outpouring of love and support being offered. It is so precious to us at this particular time, and we will remain eternally grateful for it.

We wish to share that Meg’s life celebration service will be held on Sunday, Dec. 9, at 3 p.m. in the Community Arts Center, 220 W. Fourth St., Williamsport, PA 17701. We would be honored by your presence commemorating Meg’s life. It will be a time of great music, sharing and celebration.

In response to numerous questions we have received regarding flowers and contributions, we politely ask for you to consider making a contribution to either an arts organization of your choice, or the Lycoming County SPCA–both objects of Meg’s tremendous passion and affection. Thank you!

Arrangements are being handled by Maneval Allen Redmond Cremation & Funeral Home, 500 W. Fourth St., Williamsport.
