Memorable Manitobans: Susan Margaret Macdonald (1955-2017)

Nurse.

Born at Edmonton, Alberta on 17 March 1955, daughter of Rev. Harold G. Macdonald (?-2009) and Frances Dorothy Waight, she grew up in Toronto and Winnipeg. She attended River Heights Junior High School, Kelvin High School, University of Winnipeg Collegiate, and University of Manitoba. In 1982, she graduated from the St. Boniface School of Nursing and worked on the post-partum ward at the St. Boniface General Hospital and in the community with agencies serving immigrants and refugees. She produced and directed two multi-lingual videos of health information in the mid-1990s. She served as President of the Wolseley Residents’ Association; volunteered at Laura Secord School, Sisler High School, and Winnipeg Harvest; and chaired political campaigns at the civic and provincial levels. She retired from nursing in 2004. She died at Winnipeg on 29 March 2017.
