MARGARET KATHLEEN MOZDZEN (MACK)
Date of Passing: Jan 11, 2014Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
MARGARET KATHLEEN MOZDZEN (nee MACK) With love and sadness, we say goodbye to our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend who passed away peacefully at the age of 75, on January 11, 2014 at Health Sciences Centre. Her memory will live on in the hearts of her husband of 51 years, Mike; sons Daren (Heather), Kevin (Robbie), and Trevas (Charlene); six cherished grandchildren Kevin, Kristen, Keith, Dylan, Drew, and Dustin; sisters Elaine (Ed), Marilyn, Caryn (John), and Norma (Doug); including numerous nieces, nephews, and extended family. She was predeceased by her father Tom, mother Helen, and brother-in-law Leonard. In her younger years, Margaret worked as a school teacher in the Birdina District and bank teller with the Royal Bank of Canada in Langruth. After raising a family and upon her father's retirement from Canada Post, Margaret went back to work as Postmaster at the Alonsa Post Office until her retirement in April 2000. Margaret loved her childhood growing up in Alonsa and would often recount stories of one room school houses, hectic times that came with farming and harvest season, family holiday gatherings, gardening, and the challenges of raising a family. She was actively involved and volunteered in the community over the years. After retirement, Margaret enjoyed spending summers camping and fishing at Lake Manitoba Narrows with family and friends. Aileen, Marilyn, and she perfected the routine of preparing Saturday supper for the men allowing them just enough time to clean up and make it for the calling of the first number at BINGO in the neighbouring community. This was usually followed by a bonfire and fish fry upon returning with their winnings. Margaret will be fondly remembered for her smile, compassion, understanding, generosity and commitment to her family. The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to all the doctors, nurses, and caregivers that helped care for Margaret over the last couple of years, which in turn allowed her to remain living comfortably at home. Cremation has taken place and a memorial service will be held on Saturday, January 18 at 1:00 p.m. in the Alonsa Community Hall. A private interment will take place at a later date. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Kidney Foundation or Greys Ridge Cemetery, General Delivery, Alonsa, Manitoba R0H 0A0. Dobchuk Funeral Home entrusted with arrangements. 1-204-835-2004.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)
Uncle Mike, Daren, Kevin, Trevas and families, So sad to hear of the loss of Aunty Marg. Many fond memories of traveling to Alonsa. Couldn't wait to get to 'the farm'. Aunty Marg was always so inviting and accommodating! She was an amazing woman who didn't let anything slow her down. My mom often kept me up to date on 'the grandkids'. She was so proud of each and every one of them. My sincere condolences! So sorry I can't be there. Love you all! Dayna PS-group hug - Posted by: Dayna Blanchette (Niece) on: Jan 18, 2014

Dear Mike, Daren, Kevin, Trevas and families, please accept my sincere condolences on the passing of your wife and mother. Maggie was such an awesome lady - just always so cheerful and friendly, even when her health problems became worse. I am so very happy that I had the opportunity to run into her and Mike on several occasions after they moved to the City. All the best to you and your families. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. - Posted by: Bev Palmer (Turko) (Family friend) on: Jan 14, 2014
