She trained as an R.N. in Edmonton and joined the Canadian Army in 1940. Margaret spent the war years as a front line nurse in Italy. After the war she nursed at the Colonel Belcher Hospital in Calgary. Margaret lived a full life, a dedicated nurse whose strength was an inspiration to all who knew her.
