In 1988, Margaret and Donald moved to Prince Albert where Donald worked at Prince Albert Pulp and Paper Mill until his retirement. While Donald worked, Margaret continued with her pursued her passion for curling, which took her to many communities in Saskatchewan. She had quite a competitive streak. In the summer, ‘Marg’ would golf. It was common to see Margaret out bright and early on the golf course at Cooke Golf and Curling Club. She also spent her time tending to her flowers and garden.
