<div itemprop="description">Margaret W. E. Taylor<br>June 23, 1920 – March 19, 2017<br><br>It is with great sadness, we announce the peaceful passing of Margaret Taylor, surrounded by her family, at the Saskatoon Convalescent Home. <br><br>Margaret was predeceased by her loving husband of 62 years, Andrew Taylor; her parents, Marion and Alex MacKay; infant brother; sister, Kathleen; infant daughter, Margaret-Mary; and 5 miscarried infants. <br><br>She is survived by loving daughter, Bonnie-Jean Taylor Stewart (Christopher). <br><br>Margaret was born on a farm in the Brightholm district, Saskatchewan. Her dad passed when she was 5. The family was then run by the MacKay women. Through the Dirty 30’s they worked the farm to survive. Margaret was 18 when she came to Saskatoon to work and study with Dr. P. French (first female doctor in Saskatoon). Where she met Andrew. During WWII, when Andrew was a medic overseas, she was a transport nurse in Canada. After the war, Margaret and Andrew settled in the Saskatoon district. They became involved in the start of the CCF, now the NDP. They worked under the Tommy Douglas health campaigns. It was here that Margaret worked closely with Judge Tilley Taylor (first female provincial candidate in Saskatchewan) to amend the law for women to own land under their own name. Margaret and Andrew loved children, their yard was always full of the neighbourhood children, fondly known as “Mrs. and Mr. T”. She was also a great cook and baker. Her craft skills were also strong (sewing, knitting, embroidering). Margaret volunteered at City Hospital for 25 years, she always enjoyed the people she met and had the ability to ease their worries. For giving advice she spoke the honest truth as she saw it. We will MISS this EARTH ANGEL, her Earthly work is done, she is Home to rest. <br><br>A Memorial Service will be held at the Saskatoon Convalescent Home Chapel, 101 - 31st Street West, on Monday, March 27, 2017 at 2:00 p.m. with Rev.
