    Obituary for Marguerite Louise McDonald (McDonald)

    Marguerite Louise  McDonald (McDonald)
    In Ottawa, Monday, August 24, 2015. Born Dec. 18, 1941, near Aubigny, Manitoba, Marguerite graduated as a Gold Medalist from St. Paul’s College, at the University of Manitoba. She became a teaching Sister of the Holy Names for several years before leaving the convent and beginning a career in the media in news, features and current affairs. Among many accomplishments, she was the first host of CBC Radio’s weekly parliamentary affairs program, “The House”, and one of the first women to become a network reporter for CBC TV’s “The National”. After retirement, she took an M.A. in counselling and worked in federal Employee Assistance Programs.

    Marguerite is survived by her devoted husband William (Bill) Young, her brother, John, sisters-in-law Valerie McDonald, Claire Elton and Anita McDonald; step-children: Elizabeth, Kathryn and Christine Elton and Victoria Green, and by Laura and John Young; grand-children, Lucy, Ian and Angus Mortimer, Keren and Sarah Elton, Annie Hohenadel, Liam Young, and Sarah and Tea Dukic-Young; nieces and nephews: Edie, John, Gary, Bob and Karen McDonald, Kathy Ball and Audrey Watterson.
