Congrats Amelia and Margaret

In attendance were her two sisters from Newfoundland, a small company of friends, and the Anglican Dean who offered a blessing. Amelia said they had had wanted to be married in an Anglican church but at the age of 77 she didn’t want to wait for a decision that might take up to five more years to be implemented.

She later earned a B.A. and a B. Ed. From the University of Brandon.
