  1. Margaret was a joy to know! She brought fun with her to every gathering, always so interested in everyone’s families and their activities.
    I have some very special memories of “Auntie Margaret” going back decades.
    With deep sympathy to her family.

  2. Margaret was a very special person, she only saw the good in people….Mrs. C was no doubt the best nursing manager I ever had the privilege to know and work with.
    To the family…there is another angel in heaven.
    RIP my friend

  3. Mrs. Claxton was my first interview upon moving to Edmonton. She was a tough head nurse” as they were called back then. She knew exactly what was going on with every patient on that unit with a phone in one hand , chart in another while chastising doctors for not following rules! She backed up her staff and everyone that had the privilege of working with “Mrs. C” developed a deep respect for her. RIP❤️
