In war years Margaret and Bill lived in Chilliwack and moved to Calgary in 1945, where they met and embraced the gospel in 1946 through Francess Saunders and Doris McCrae. They were very hospitable and loved opening their home for fellowship meetings. In 1947 they moved to Galloway, B.C. and in 1957 to Rimbey, AB. where they farmed for 18 years. When the farm was sold, they moved to Red Deer for 18 years. When Bill passed away Mom moved back and forth between Red Deer and Rimbey and eventually moved into the Rimbey Valley View Manor where she resided for the past 6 years, until her passing. Mom was greatly loved and will be missed by all who knew her.
Margaret’s family would like to thank her caregivers from Rimbey Valley View Manor, Dr. Hackett and nurses at Rimbey Hospital for their tender loving care.
