Chicago Tribune (IL) - February 1. 1989
Deceased Name: MARION 'MA' NUGENT,
Marion "Ma" Nugent, 62,
the mother of rock star Ted Nugent, wrote a column for the
Illinois Entertainer and was considered the spiritual mother of
the Chicago rock scene.
Mass for Mrs. Nugent, a
resident of Palatine who wintered in High Point, Fla., was said
Tuesday in Brooksville, Fla. She died in that city Saturday.
Her column was called, "Ma
Nugent's Mail." It was begun in the Illinois Entertainer in 1977
and is still carried in the publication but is now
"Ma Nugent was as
effervescent and as energetic a person as you will ever meet,"
said Ken Voss, founder of Illinois Entertainer.
"To everyone around the
Chicago scene in the mid-1970s, she was the mother of the local
rock scene. She was out in the clubs until all hours of the
night, listening, supporting and rooting for the groups such as
The Boyzz and Cheap Trick. Our publication had begun in 1973 and
we wanted a letters to the editor column, but one with a little
kick so we got Ma to handle it.
Mrs. Nugent formerly also
worked in a boutique in the northwest suburbs. Her son, Ted, one
of four children is best known for his stage antics and
ear-shattering performances and his songs, "Cat Scratch Fever"
and "Weekend Warriors." He lives in Hanover, Mich.
