She and her husband were married by their fathers who were both United Church ministers. The Methodist Church had become part of the United Church in 1925.
During her high school years Helen had attended a number of schools. She spent her final year at Alberta College, a United Church school in Belleville, which her mother had attended. There Helen had her first formal education in music. Her mother was a singer so previously Helen had learned some things from her.
In 1942 Helen graduated from Peterborough Normal School. She was hired at a county school outside of Peterborough to teach twenty pupils. There was a new a munitions plant in the area. She arrived at the school at the tender age of nineteen to met forty five children in eight grades. The oldest boy was sixteen.
After one year of teaching in the country Helen began teaching in Torontoís north end at John Fisher School. This move enabled her to take vocal training at the conservatory. This was wartime and she fell in love with and married an air force meteorologist. Because she was married she could no longer teach but had hoped to follow him. Her husband had only been in Toronto for a crash course in meteorology. While they were engaged he was in Charlottetown, PEI and in Gaspe. When they married he went to his next posting and the bride went home to her parents in Hastings. She did supply work. When he went to Ste. Hubert she did join him and while there Helen attended George Brown College in Montreal.
The day the war ended her husband was on the way to Toronto to try to get into university. He did study chemical engineering and because he had an arts degree he was able to graduate in three years instead of four. Thus he was in the job market a year ahead of the other veterans. He had four job offers from Toronto, Montreal and Sarnia where there were two openings. He chose Polysar.
While the couple were in Toronto the board tried to find work for Helen. She supervised a day care at Jesse Ketchum School. She supplied for teachers and secretaries. The business course at George Brown was useful. She spent at year as Hart House secretary. Then in 1947 Toronto allowed married women to teach just when Helen learned that the Sarnia board did not accept married women. By 1953 there was a desperate need for teachers and Helen was hired to teach forty five grade ones. In 1955 married women were formally accepted as teachers. By 1956 Helen had three children herself. In the early 1960s Helen did a lot of supply work while a friend kept Helenís youngest child . After two long term supply contracts at High Park, Helen served as principals relief at Woodland for fourteen years. There she taught senior grades and lead trios and choirs.
After a year off she returned to Woodland then finished her career at Clarke. Between 1972 and 1978 Helen completed her degree in English and sociology. She retired in 1985.

Helen and her husband were active in Central United Church. They both sang in the choir. Helen was in that choir for over sixty years.
They enjoyed travel. Her husband had been stationed in Belgium for a year troubleshooting for Polysar. Helen spent five weeks there with him. She has been to Australia twice and travelled to China, Japan, Hong Kong and Greece.
Helen is an active member of RWTO. She served as local president and served as provincial president in 1993-4.
Helen has three children. Her older son lives in Vancouver. Her second son has followed in his motherís footsteps. He teaches high school in Oxbridge and is also an artist. Helenís daughter is an accountant with General Motors in St. Catharines.
After thirty four years of teaching and twenty eight of retirement Helen has advice.
ďContinue to make the most of every day. Give back. There is great satisfaction in that. Enjoy travel. ĎLife is short so every day is a gift. Make the most of it!íĒ

CERTIFICATE OF RECOGNITION FOR 90TH BIRTHDAY
Margaret MacDonald was born to a Bruce county farm couple ninety years ago. She has two younger brothers. Her brother Graham MacDonald was a teacher in Petrolia at the beginning of his career. He went on to be a school inspector stationed in Watford and then London. After his retirement from teaching, both he and his wife attended Knox College to became ministers.
They served in the Burkís Falls area and have retired there. Margaretís sister-in-law sends daily devotions by email to Margaretís laptop computer. Margaretís other brother lives in Sarnia and was a research chemist at Imperial oil. He and his wife are helpful to Margaret as she uses her computer.
Besides the use of computers, Margaret commented on all the changes that had occurred in the last ninety years and speculated on what the next innovations will be. As a child she was driven the two and a half miles to school in the mornings. In the afternoons she and other children made their own way home. The children were taken to school in horse drawn sleighs, wagons or buggies. In the afternoons they often found a ride home, too.
"Basically, we were hitch hiking after school," Margaret said. This was the era before school buses.
The farm work at Margaretís home was done by Doll and Floss, two horses. Before sewing machines beautiful clothing was made by hand. Margaretís grandmother knit stockings although her grandchildren did not always appreciate her efforts because other children did not have hand knit stockings. Baking was hard work. A wood fire had to be built. Margaretís grandmother had had to draw water from a spring before she could begin preparations.
Margaret recalls that hydro came to the family farm 1948 and that was great! When hydro was new at the farm the family turned on all the lights in the house and everyone went outside and checked to see how the house looked! No longer did the battery have to be removed from the car to operate the radio in the house. What changes this last ninety years has wrought!
Margaret attended teachersí college in Toronto where she stayed with her aunt. Many Bruce County students attended the teachersí college in Stratford, located across from the present day theatre. Margaret returned to Bruce county and taught in country schools for six years and then was hired in Sarnia. The Sarnia board was expanding its boundaries to take in more schools so more teachers were hired. A new school seemed to open every year. Margaretís career included teaching at Johnson Memorial , Lochiel, Confederation Street (now used by the military) and Hanna. On a tour of the former Lochiel Street School, now a community centre, Margaret was surprised to be offered an elevator ride!
Margaret completed her degree while she was teaching. She would take one course each winter and two every summer. She was a busy lady then and continues to be active.
For many years Margaret sang with the Rainbow Singers. She continues to sing in the St. Andrews choir, she prepares the program for St. Andrews Seniors as well as the worship and mission service for St. Andrews Presbyterian Women, she attends presbytery, and belongs to RTO, RWTO and University Women.
Her advice is "be optimistic" and she recalls a quote from one of the W studies at her church which is "Donít worry. Have Faith."
Best wishes to you as you celebrate this milestone birthday. Also congratulations and thank you to you and your church crew for hosting luncheons and programs twice a month for seniors in our community. Great work!

Margaret turned 90 in October, 2013

The guy had been job hunting and noticed an advertisement for a job that met Bruceís qualifications. Bruce had only a week off after leaving the Air Force before he began teaching in Sarnia.

Margaret was born in Guelph. When she was six months old her father, a barber, passed away as the result of the 1918 flu. This left Margaretís mother a widow with three children to raise. The family moved in Margaret maternal grandparents. Longevity must be hereditary. Margaret says her grandmother was a "long liver" at 101when she was pictured a Toronto newspaper with the caption "oldest person watching TV."
When Margaret left school at the age of sixteen she became a hairdresser. She married John Kuenzig in August of 1940 and John was sent overseas with the army in December of 1940.
Margaret jokingly says, "We had our separation at the beginning of our marriage."
She kept all the letters that he wrote to her while he was overseas. He always seemed to be "going on vacation or going on a course" while he was in England. He also served in Italy including Montecassino, and in Holland. Margaret recalls that everyone sent cigarettes to soldiers. John had joined the army as a private and retired as captainís command. Then he went to teachersí college.
John has always wanted to teach. He started out as an engineering instructor at the University of Guelph then had an opportunity to teach in Sault Ste. Marie before moving to Sarnia where wages were better. Sarnia was booming in 1953. This was the year before Northern Collegiate was built. SCITS students attended SCITS in the mornings while Northern students used the same high school in the afternoons. John taught for ten years at Northern and retired as technical director at St. Clair Collegiate in 1976.
The Kuenzigs had found Sault Ste. Marie cold and preferred the climate in Sarnia. The family had always planned to return to Guelph or at least change houses.
"However,"says Margaret, "every time we thought of moving John knocked out a wall," in the house that has been home since 1953!
Margaret worked all the time John was overseas and quit hairdressing upon his return to Canada.
It total she worked ten years as a hairdresser and then raised five children. Homemaking was heavy work at that time. Automatic washers, prepared foods and other conveniences were not readily available.
Margaret and Johnís children wanted nothing to do with teaching. Now, one daughter is a former library technician who worked in the local school system. She is married to a retired teacher, Ken Winch. A daughter in London was an early childhood educator and a third daughter is a school secretary in Michigan. One of Margaretís sons and Bert Phills, our Chit Chat editor, are married to twin sisters. Bertís wife is a teacher and her twin is a nurse. Educators are unavoidable!! Margaret does have a son who worked at Nova and a grandson who is as local optometrist.
In retirement along with his woodworking hobby, John was on the committee when the Strangway Centre was built. Margaret and John enjoyed shuffleboard at the new facility. Until recent years when their church closed, Margaret appreciated the fact that it was located almost across the street from their home.
Margaret recommends the services of the CCAC. Along with assistance from family CCAC was helpful to her after a fall last year.
Margaretís siblings are her sister, who was a nurse, and her brother, who was a manager with Miracle Mart. Remember that grocery store chain!! Margaret has eleven grandchildren. She also has three great grandchildren
