Haggit (nee Bell), Margaret

Margaret trained at the Queen Victoria Hospital in Revelstoke from 1930-1933; the uncertainty of jobs in Canada led her to go to England where she did a post graduate course at St. Thomas’s Hospital in London.  This led to employment as a district nurse as World War II threatened.   She married and moved to Cambridge, but her husband was shot down over Holland September 7, 1941.

She returned to Canada in April 1942 where she worked at Shaughnessy Hospital and Eaton’s Department Store, then to the Willow Tuberculosis Survey clinic for the next 23 years.  She moved to Australia in March 1984 to live near her daughter.
