Margaret was a very talented woman who graduated with honours from the University of Toronto with a Bachelor of Physical Education and a Masters Degree in Education from Wayne State University (Michigan). She also obtained her ACTM in piano and organ, and used these talents as the highlights of many sing-songs (camps) and as organist at Grace United Church (Sarnia). Margaret had varied work careers – Physical Education teacher at Simcoe High School (Simcoe, Ont); receptionist at her husband’s dental office (Dr. Norman Anderson); radio talk show host at CHOK in Sarnia; psychometrist and social worker at the Sarnia – Lambton Centre for Children and Youth.

Her volunteer work continued with C.G.I.T. groups, A.C.L.D. chapters, and the New Kids on the Block puppet group that travelled around to schools teaching students how to deal with many problems. For 33 years, Margaret followed her love of the outdoors by going on exciting wilderness adventure trips with her sister and best friends – (“The Crazy Ladies”). Upon retirements, she and Norm bought a cottage in Muskoka (Sentimental Journey) where they lived for 6 months of the year until 2006.  After Norm passed away in 2009, she continued her volunteer work at the hospital and church until her health made this impossible in April, 2015.
