Margaret-Ann Armour died peacefully and gracefully at the Cross Cancer Institute at dawn May 25, 2019 surrounded by a few of the many friends who have become family to her. Tributes have poured in since, testifying to the legacy left by her inspirational mentorship and infectious passion for "doing science as if people matter."
Margaret-Ann’s story lives on in the many individuals, institutions, and networks shaped by her kindness, integrity, and commitment to equity and inclusiveness. Her dedication to wider community shone through in the leadership she nurtured within various organizations she was a part of. The students of Edmonton’s Dr. Margaret-Ann Armour School will be among the many who dearly miss her perceptive questions, playful scientific demonstrations, and heartfelt hugs.
Thank you, Margaret-Ann, you have left your mark in our lives and we are better for it.
