  • Notes 
    • MAGEE--September 17th, Agnes Wilhelmine (Winnie), widow of the late William C. Magee of Hopkins Landing, B.C., passed away in a local hospital at the age of 78 years after a lengthy illness.

      Born in West Luther Twp., Wentworth County, Ontario, the eldest daughter of Mr. and Mrs. George B. Thomson, she moved with her parents at an early age to Galt, Ontario, where she was educated. In 1905 she came to the Parkland district where her parents were homesteading, and the same year commenced training as a nurse in the Calgary General Hospital on 12th Avenue East, (now known as Rundle Lodge).

      In 1906 she married William C. Magee of Calgary, where she made her home almost continuously until 1940 with short intervals at Parkland, Vancouver and various points in California. In 1940 she moved with her husband to Hopkins Landing, B.C., where Mr. Magee passed away in 1947. In 1959 Mrs. Magee returned to Calgary to be with her sisters, Miss Georgina Thomson and Mrs. Warwick (Chaddy) Linton of 3012 5A Street Southwest. A former member of St. Paul's United church and the Edith Cavell Chapter, OES, she was also active in Red Cross Work.

      Surviving are one daughter, Mrs. Warren (Willa) Karchner, Rosemead, California; her two sisters in Calgary, a sister Mrs. John G. (Ethel) Wilson, Parkland; a brother, Dr. James Thomson, Seattle, Washington; and a grandson, Stephen Littlejohn, Courtenay, B.C. Her elder daughter, Mrs. Clarence (Madge) Littlejohn died in July of this year, and a sister Mrs. Walter G. (Beatrice) Hawk of Parkland in 1956.
      Services will be held at Jacques funeral home Tuesday at 1:30 p.m. Rev. D.G. Littlejohns officiating. Interment, Burnsland Cemetery.
