Margaret Anne Rothwell (Nana), beloved wife of James Rothwell of Calgary, passed away on Thursday, August 2, 2007 at the age of 66 years.
Margaret was born in London, England on October 10, 1940. She resided in North London until she met and married James Rothwell in the early 1990’s. Together, they then immigrated to Calgary in September 1992. Margaret had two especially great achievements that she was very proud of – she catered to the Queen on her Royal Visit to Calgary in 2005 and she raised two wonderful children and two grandchildren.
