In this section of our website, you will find a short entry about the life of each of our Sisters who has been called by God to embark on her eternal life. No doubt you will find inspiration in reading how each one responded to her calling while on earth. We pray to them to help us on our journey.

If you knew one or more of these Sisters personally, or are connected through family ties, or simply like what you read, please contact us and tell us what you would like to add to that entry.

"The death of those can never leave us free from grief whose friendship during life was a solace and delight." Saint Augustine, City of God.

Margaret, from Yorkshire, England, entered MMM on 14 May 1948. She was a convert to Catholicism from the Church of England. She came for an interview with a view to going overseas as a lay doctor, but Mother Mary convinced her she had a vocation to MMM and Margaret never regretted that.

Being a qualified and experienced doctor, she was assigned to Tanzania shortly after profession. She gave many years of wonderful service, mainly in Kabanga, until she was elected assistant general at the 1974 General Chapter.

On completion of her term of office, she returned in 1980 to her beloved Tanzania, this time working in Dareda, Babati and Nangwa.

She was a wonderful all-round doctor and was thought so highly of that she was invited to be a member of the first Medical Board in Tanzania.

She was known for her great sense of humour and was very adaptable.

Her only brother, Peter, an Anglican minister, concelebrated her Requiem Mass in Drogheda and talked of the pleasure and privilege in being part of this ecumenical gesture.

Sr. Margaret died and is buried in Drogheda.
