An on-campus memorial service will be held for University of Calgary professor Margo Husby on March 20 from 7–9 p.m. in Craigie Hall C Room 105. 


Husby passed away on Feb. 13 after a month-long battle with the H1N1 virus. She was 64 years old.

“Husby was an inspired teacher and friend to everyone in the communications and culture department and the arts faculty,” stated a U of C press release.


The U of C has set up the Margo Husby Mature Student Scholarship. The scholarship will be awarded to students who write essays on the subject of 
compassion.
