On Sunday, January 12, 2020, after a brief illness, Margaret went to be with her Lord.
Deeply missed and forever cherished, Margaret leaves behind eight children, Barb Zimbelman (Rev. Clyde), Dwight (Val), Chris (Heather), Tim (Deb), Phyllis Boon (Bart), Louise Braun (Murray), Andrew (Maureen), Brenda Edinger (Scott); 19 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren and one brother Hans Rogalski (Maria); as well as numerous family and friends.
She was predeceased by her husband Otto; parents; two siblings and a great-grandchild.
Margaret was born January 26, 1930 in Winnipeg. She married the love of her life, Otto Grauman in 1950. They primarily farmed in Moosehorn, MB where she was a faithful support to her husband, as a farm wife and a loving mother. Throughout her life, she was active serving God in the church in various roles, as well as in her world at large. She retired with Otto to Kelowna where they enjoyed their many friends, camping and taking motorcycle trips around the country. In 2002 they moved back to Winnipeg to be closer to family.
Margaret lived out her faith; consistently generous, gracious, grateful, joyful and content. She was a friend and hospitable to everyone she came across. Many people were blessed by the work of her hands, as she knitted for many causes close to her heart, well into her later years.
A memorial service for Margaret will be held Saturday, January 18, 2020 at 2:00 p.m. at Rowandale Baptist Church, 162 Rowandale Avenue, Winnipeg.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Chain of Love Orphanage in Brazil, an organization very dear to Margaret's heart. For donation information see

  • In my younger years, we would drive out to Moosehorn and spend a day on the Grauman farm. I have fond memories of our visits there with family and I especially liked spending time with the farm animals. Margaret always graciously welcomed us into her home. I was amazed how she was able to manage raising her eight children in addition to all the farm chores. We even learned how to churn butter while we were there! My condolences to all her children and loved ones as you grieve the loss of someone whom you loved so much. May you cherish all the beautiful memories you have of Margaret and may it give you peace to know that she is with her Lord. - Posted by: Angela (Maria Rogalski's niece) on: Jan 18, 2020
