MARGARET ALICE BRICK
March 29, 1925 - February 20, 2021
With her children by her side, our mother was gathered by her Angels and taken to meet our Dad, her husband, Roger Jules Brick, who has been waiting for her since his passing in 2013. Mom was predeceased by her son-in-law Ken Moe, grandson Cody Rempel, great-grandson Branden Miller, and grandson-in-law Dennis Bruneau.
Margaret is survived by her children: Linda (Ken), Marilyn (Bob), George (Lynn), Jo-Anne (Keith) and Theresa (Denis). Also cherishing her memory are her 16 grandchildren: Jesse, Katie (Joel), Zoey (Ryan), Vanessa (Dennis), Ryan (Denise), Jeff (Michaelle), Chad (Laura), Krista (Matt), Matt (Chelsea), Melissa (Marcus), Courtney (Corey), Adam (Kirsten), Jordy (Derek), Cody, Kayla and Evan, along with her 19 great-grandchildren and her sister Bertha. She is loved and missed by so many.
Margaret was born in Fort Whyte, Manitoba and grew up on her family farm Model Dairies where she began a journey of hard work and dedication to family. Mom met our Dad and married him on June 28, 1949. They settled on their own farm in Fort Whyte and started a family of their own. Mom worked hard caring for her children while market-gardening and helping on the farm. Her strong body and determined nature carried her well throughout her long life.
Mom gave generously to her children. Her grandchildren and great-grandchildren became the focus of her life and her greatest joy. Mom loved nothing better than to beat her children and grandchildren at cards or her weekly Bingo games over zoom. Her competitive nature always put a smile on her face when she won! The success of her family gave her great pride. After they retired, Mom and Dad loved to travel and enjoyed their cottage with their family around them. Her knitting became a favourite pastime, and she gave slippers to everybody she knew. Mom loved going to church and prayed faithfully for many people every night.
A special thank you to the Lindenwood Terrace team who cared for her during a particularly difficult time of Covid-19 when Mom was isolated during lockdown. Their love and care sustained her along with her dear friend Alice who checked in on her regularly as well as her friend Mary.
A very special thank you to Southern Health Palliative Care Program; Brigitte, Bernice, Marnie and Dr. Wolke who made bringing Mom to our home not only possible, but they gave us the strength and confidence to care for her. There are not enough kind words to describe how important they are to us. Her long-time physician Dr. Hayward, her champion, worked with the Southern Health team which made her feel comforted. This team made it possible for her to live out her final months with the comfort of home and family during a Global Pandemic. There are no words to describe our gratitude.
The family will announce the date for a Celebration of Life and interment once the current Covid-19 restrictions allow.
In lieu of flowers, please donate to the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Manitoba.

Condolences & Memories (16 entries)
Theresa, Dennis, Kayla & Evan and George & Lynne & Linda. I was so sorry to hear now about the death of your Mom & Grandmother. Losing the matriarch of such a vibrant family in such weird times is truly tragic because it robs you of that chance to celebrate the incredible person she was & life she lived. I see that competitive spirit, love of people and sense of humour in all of you. I still have a warm toque she knit & it is so soft like a hug. Thinking of you all.

Sorry for your loss. Recall going to their place to buy corn. They had a neat root house and the best corn! Your mom and mine Elsie Van Wynsberghe will be talking flowers I’m sure. Deepest sympathy to you all. - Posted by: Kathy Smith (Relative) on: Feb 27, 2021
Our family loved Mrs. Brick. She made many beautiful pieces of clothing for the girls in our family and when I was getting married in 1971, Mrs. Brick made my wedding gown. The Bricks were coming to the wedding and so when I went to pick up my dress, it was given to me as a gift. Your parents were wonderful, warm people and the Van Berkels all have fond memories of trips to your home in Fort Whyte. Erin (Van Berkel) Myers - Posted by: Erin Myers (Friend) on: Feb 27, 2021
When I met mom (she wanted me to call her mom,) in the hospital she made my stay there bearable. Because mom and Theresa talked to me and the endless card games we played. Mom has a special place in my heart and I will miss her dearly. My deepest sympathy to all the family - Posted by: Dawn Jackson (Friend ) on: Feb 27, 2021
So very sorry for your loss. - Posted by: John Currie (Friend of family) on: Feb 27, 2021
To the extended Brick family, I was saddened to read of your loss. I have very fond memories of Roger and Margaret as we were "neighbours" in the bay at Red Rock Lake. It amazed me how many people could fit into that cottage! I would have to say that your grandchildren were definitely my Mom, Audrey's "practice" grandchildren as one by one they migrated over to our dock. When I pay visits to Red Rock it is so nice to see the next generation enjoying all of the special parts of the lake life that our parents taught us to love. May you find comfort in that special place they found for you all. Patti, on behalf of the Douglas family - Posted by: Patti Douglas (lake neighbour) on: Feb 27, 2021

Just a note to let you know Ernie & Dorothy are thinking of Marilyn & Bob at this time of Mom's passage. Hang in there at this time of visiting constraints. - Posted by: Ernie Parrish (Co-worker) on: Feb 27, 2021
Our condolences to all the Brick family. Your mom was very dear to my heart. I have great memories of time spent with her. We used to enjoy playing canasta with her and your dad. They were both so competitive and she would get so upset when she would catch him cheating (which he did often, lol). She always spoke lovingly of her family and she was very proud of every one of you. She will now once again be by your dad’s side, getting ready to bake some more goodies for the next card game. All of you will be in my prayers. God be with you till we meet again, Margaret. - Posted by: Louise Dahle (Family friend) on: Feb 27, 2021
You are all in my thoughts and prayers. She left a wonderful Legacy and now she is totally at peace in the most wonderful place ever! - Posted by: Lesley Antonsen (client/friend Colors) on: Feb 27, 2021
