In 1987 Marguerite moved from Edmonton to join her husband Bob in Atlanta, Georgia, where she took a position at the Lawrenceville library. She retired in 1995 and when Bob retired in 2001, they moved to Kelowna where she resided until her sudden death. Marguerite enjoyed the arts, fine wine and travel.
