    Notes 
    • Prior to her divorce in 1928, Wilhelmina made at least 2 trips to the US, one in November 1925 and a second in August 1926. There may be others because "The Lethbridge Herald" ran this story on 9 January 1925:
      "A recent message from Mrs Gilbert Maggs announces that that lady feels much improved by the salubrious climate of Portland, Oregon, and has not been a patient at the sanatorium as was at first the impression, but is sojourning at the home of a friend in that city."

    • A Decree Nisi was granted to the plaintiff, Gilbert Maggs, to be made absolute in 3 months. The decree was reported in "The Lethbridge Herald" on Wednesday, February 22, 1928. Following the divorce of Wilhelmina and Gilbert Maggs, it would seem that Wilhelmina may have reverted to her maiden name of 'Aitken' or 'Aiken' for at least part of the time.
