Margaret and Frank lived in a number of places across Manitoba, Saskatchewan and Alberta while moving with Frank’s oilfield job. They moved to Red Deer in 1986 where they put down roots for good. Margaret was active in the community and volunteered for a variety of church and charity organizations. Both her and Frank were members of the Lutheran Church of the Good Shepherd in Red Deer. Margaret kept busy by participating in the Oilwives Club, doing various crafts (knitting, crocheting, sewing, paper tole) and loved baking.
