Margaret Ann Aikins was born in Winnipeg, Manitoba in November 22, 1915. She attended Havergal School in Winnipeg, but attended a high school in Montreal. After graduation, she studied art in England. She married George Sellers in 1936, and she began participating in various volunteer boards, such as St. John’s College and the Red River Exhibition.

She was made an Honorary Fellow of St. John’s College in 1986, from which she later received an Honorary Doctor of Canon Law. In 1987 she established the George H.
