Toshi Seeger died Tuesday at the age of 91. The wife of folk music legend Peter Seeger is being remembered as an activist, filmmaker, and a woman with a profound influence on her husband.

Hal Cohen is a founding member of Beacon-based Clearwater, an environmental organization of which Pete Seeger is also a founding member.

Cohen says she was a role model for him, and helped with such challenges like founding Clearwater.
