A Faithful Notre Dame Friend

Margaret Anne Fraher was a faithful Notre Dame friend in both life and death.

A third-generation San Franciscan, she graduated from Notre Dame High School, San Francisco, in 1942. Margaret attended U.C. Berkeley, and later worked in the Microbiology Department at UCSF Medical School. She co-authored many studies, including “Penicillin-resistant Variants of Pneumococci.”

Margaret volunteered for many organizations and in many capacities: visiting shut-ins for her parish, driving for Project Open Hand and working at the Haight Ashbury Food Clinic.

Margaret enjoyed working with friends in the NDSF Alumnae Association and shared their interest in supporting the Sisters’ retirement needs. She included the Sisters in her will “Only way to go.  I owe the Sisters so much.”

Margaret died in 2004.
