Margaret’s father died a month before her birth. Her mother raised 4 daughters in a small building on their aunt and uncle’s farmyard. They survived through housekeeping, sewing and help from family and church. Margaret was delighted to attend Rosthern (Sask.) Junior College for Grade 12 and work for Friesen’s General Store for a year. She worked as a psychiatric nurse in North Battleford, Sask. Margaret and Peter lived 6 years in Saskatoon and 41 years in Regina. After Peter died suddenly, Margaret returned to Saskatoon, where Bethany Towers became her home. Faith in God and time with family and friends were important. Margaret’s hobbies were cross-stitching, puzzling, playing games, and watching football and curling. She volunteered 19 years at Village Green Thrift Store, 10 at Ten Thousand Villages and 16 in Bethany Manor’s dining room.
