Anderson, Maggie Wilhelmina (Campbell)

(1891 - 1992)

Maggie and Oscar Anderson homesteaded at Bowden until 1913 when they moved to Sibbald, Alberta. They returned to their original Bowden farm in 1924 to raise their eight children.

Most of Maggie’s time was spent on domestic chores. Weekends were for social events in the district. Moving to an acreage in 1946, "Grandma" Anderson lived there until 1969, nine years after Oscar's death.

During the 1960s, Maggie belonged to the Ladies' Aid Society. She lived in Bowden until her death in 1992, just short of her 101st birthday.
