Leaving Germany after WWII, Margaret moved to Canada in 1954. After stops in Winnipeg, Vancouver, and Ocean Falls, she settled in Port Alberni in the winter of 1959 where she met her husband, Stan. They soon married in May of 1960 and went on to start a family in 1966. Margaret worked most of her life at West Coast General Hospital and enjoyed her well earned retirement by travelling, gardening, and playing with her grandchildren. She spent her final days full of love and laughter in Ty Watson House surrounded by her family.
