May 2009 Sanders – DUCC

Designated 1972

May, originally from Dumfermline Scotland, began ministry as a diaconal minister in Bay of Quinte Conference and after further study at Queen’s Theological School she was ordained. May then moved to Alberta where she served mostly in chaplaincy positions in Edmonton, but also in congregational ministry.  In her experience with cancer, May talked about `living with cancer“ rather than dying of it; those close to her say her laughter was present until the last.  (Memorial prepared by Dorothy Naylor).  For more information on May visit,
