I have to announce with much regret (want of space preventing my alluding to it last week) the death of Staff Nurse Margaret Mckilligan M.R.B.N.A.aged twenty-five years, which took place on the 3rd inst, at the Royal Infirmary, Aberdeen, after an illness of only a week's duration. A short service was held by the Reverend C. Lippe, M.A., Chaplain to the Infirmary, on the morning of the 6th inst.,prior to removal of the body for interment. The coffin was covered with flowers, the gift of Miss Lumsden, the Hon. Superintendant, the Sisters, House Surgeons, Students and Nurses. Nearly all the Nurses were present, headed by Miss Lumsden. A deputation of the Nurses, accompanied by the Rev. C. Liffe and three of the sisters, afterwards escorted the body to the Station, whence it was despatched by rail to Huntley, en route to Kennethmont, one of the nurses on behalf of the rest, depositing a beautiful wreath upon the coffin.
