Marguerite Duguid, beloved wife of Scot Duguid of Calgary, passed away on Tuesday, September 9, 2008 at the age of 87 years.
Marguerite was born and educated in Moosomin, SK. She met Scot in Brandon, MB and they were married in 1944; they recently celebrated their sixty-fourth wedding anniversary. Marguerite and Scot established a successful music business and worked side by side at Scot’s Music Centre Ltd. for thirty-four years.
