Rush Drummer's Wife Dies Of Cancer

By Jane Stevenson, Toronto Sun, July 3, 1998

Tragedy has struck Rush drummer Neil Peart again.

Peart's wife, Jacqueline Taylor, is dead from cancer almost one year after the couple lost their 19-year-old daughter last August in a single-car crash.

A spokesperson for Rush's Toronto-based management company confirmed that Peart's wife had died but declined to give details.

Peart's daughter, Serena Taylor, died when the Jeep she was driving left the westbound lane of Hwy. 401, and crashed near Brighton, Ont.
