Margaret Bell Zorn (nee Graham) passed away at Shuswap Lake General Hospital, Salmon Arm, B.C. on Thursday, February 10, 2022, at the age of 96 years.

A worship service in remembrance and celebration of Margaret’s life will be held at Deo Evangelical Lutheran Church, Salmon Arm led by Pastor Erik Bjorgan on Saturday, April 2 at 2:30 p.m.

Margaret was born July 18, 1925, in Toronto Township, Peel County, Ontario and raised on the Graham family farm at Derry West near Brampton by her parents, George Henderson Graham and Sarah Margaret Graham (Bell) and the Graham clan of the area. Margaret aspired to work as a Civil Engineer, an uncommon job for women in the 1940’s, but she trained as a nurse at the Wellesley Hospital in Toronto. With a nursing classmate and a strong sense of adventure, Margaret took the train to Vancouver and the Union Steamship to Alert Bay, B.C. for her first nursing job, where she met her husband-to-be for 52 years, Oscar “Ozzie” Zorn, a B.C. Provincial officer and then a RCMP officer.

By quiet example Margaret served God, her Family and her Community.

Margaret will be lovingly remembered by her daughter, Helen (Roger) Eberle of Vernon, B.C., son George (Jeanetta) Zorn of Salmon Arm and Grandsons Matthew (Jessy-Ann) of Salmon Arm and Stephen of Revelstoke.

  3. Margaret Zorn was a special lady to us! We are the grateful recipients of her townhouse which we purchased from her in 2015. It was immaculate and the view spectacular! We were able to have her come and visit a couple of times after we moved in and she graciously gave us her approval for the way we were looking after it. We also visited her several times at her new residence and even met her out on walks and always had delightful visits. She was always so gracious and kind and we quite enjoyed our visits with her!
    We send our condolences to her family and know you will miss her, as we will too.
