Commissioned as Missionary 1955, Commissioned to Diaconal Minister 1982

Margaret graduated from the United Church Training School in 1955.  Shortly afterwards, she and Eric were married and were appointed to serve the church in Zambia.  Back in Canada after ten years, they served pastoral charges in Ontario and Alberta.  In 1982, Margaret was commissioned to diaconal ministry where she worked in congregational ministry in Saskatchewan and Alberta. Marilyn Anderson Corkum, friend and diaconal colleague, was one of the ministers who presided at her funeral.  In the service, reference was made to the strength, compassion and courage that Margaret brought to her ministry and her life.  (Memorial prepared by Dorothy Naylor.)  To read a longer biography of Margaret click here.
