McDONALD, Margaret (?-1950)

By the death of Miss M A McDonald, the villages have lost one who was familiar to nearly everyone and there can be no more widely respected than she was.  For fifty years she taught in our School and many members of our population were her pupils.  It is safe to say that her influence and example have done much for them.  She was a born teacher and always maintained good order and discipline without apparent effort, but those who knew her best were conscious of the amount of hard work involved.  She did much to keep up the very high reputation of the School, but she always shunned publicity and was content to lead a life of quiet unselfishness.   CAB
