A Local Hero

Margaret Evans has been the Executive Director of Rotary Hospice House since 2007. Her work with Rotary Hospice House, operated by the Salvation Army, continues a family tradition of service.

Born in Santiago, Chile, to Salvation Army parents, Margaret moved to Vancouver when she was seven years old and grew up in several places across Canada. She currently lives in Vancouver with her husband, George. Together they have three grown children and six beautiful grandchildren.

“I find that it is a privilege to meet so many wonderful, courageous people who come through our doors,” says Margaret. “I learn so much from their stories and from their lives.”
Rotary Hospice House is located at 6460 No. 4 Road. It is a community-based hospice created by the Rotary Club of Richmond and The Salvation Army, which is based on a shared vision of the need for and value of hospice care.
