June 25, 1941 - June 8, 2021

It is with great sadness and sorrow that the family announces the passing of their beloved mother, sister and aunt. Peacefully, at Riverview Health Centre, Mom went to be with her Saviour early Tuesday morning, June 8, 2021.
She was predeceased by her parents, Elizabeth and John, and her beloved husband William. Mom leaves to cherish many amazing joyful memories with her son Bryan (Heather, Nathan and Clara), daughters, Carol (Harlan, William and Harrison), and Carla (Steve), sister Rosemarie, sister-in-law Beryl, and nieces, nephews and many dear friends.
Mom loved her family and put all her energy into raising her children and being a support to her husband. Her kids have many memories of little things Mom would do to make them feel loved and special. Birthdays with all their favourites and special celebrations for good grades or accomplishments. She was our mentor and an amazing example of how Jesus can shine through the life of a person. Mom loved her grandchildren so much. She was the happiest when they were around. When Harrison or William called from Fort McMurray she would tell the rest of the family their stories with such pride! Mom loved that Clara had her same curly hair and a gift for making anything she created look beautiful. She was so proud of how Nathan was growing up to be a kind, compassionate young man. This characteristic of love and hospitality also shone through in how Mom approached anyone who crossed her path. She loved giving to her friends and family. She also loved cooking for others and encouraging others. Mom was always involved in our church as a Sunday school superintendent, Sunday school teacher, library volunteer or Bible study host. She had a passion for reading and hymns! Often when we would call we would hear the hymns playing in the background as she was sitting and reading a book. Her love for Jesus was the most important thing in her life and she wanted to share that love especially with her family and friends. Mom was diagnosed with gallbladder cancer in January which had already spread to other areas of her body. We thank God for His love and mercy in allowing Mom to live these last few months relatively pain free and that she passed quickly with minimal suffering.
A memorial service will be held later in the summer.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Winnipeg Evangelical Free Church, Compassion Canada or CancerCare Manitoba.

Isaiah 41:10
So do not fear, for I am with you;
do not be dismayed, for I am your God.
I will strengthen you and help you;
I will uphold you with my righteous
right hand.

Condolences & Memories (4 entries)

  • I just heard about your Mother today (from Lote) ....... it hurts my heart to know she has passed. But the beauty, in the sadness is that she is now reunited with her loving Bill. (She always missed him.) Margaret had a special place in all of our hearts! She was always very thoughtful and kind to all of us. Cancer is a terrible disease - it effects everyone. (I too lost my Mom 7 yrs ago at the age of 75 to esophageal cancer). Another blessing is there will be no cancer in heaven! Your Mom has gained her Angel Wings and will be watching over all of you from above❣️ The Harder’s - Posted by: Brenda, Alfred, Travis and Katrina Harder (Neighbours ) on: Jun 16, 2021

  • Your obituary and tribute to your mother is exactly who she was. I looked forward to her yearly visits to Rose's where the cousins would gather to visit. She would tell cute stories of her grandkids with her eyes sparkling with all the love she felt. I recall one in particular many years ago, I think it was Carol's son. She showed pictures and it was the little blond haired one. I recall it being about a trip she took with the family, I think it was BC, and a walk where they went and something happened to her foot or his. I always looked forward to hearing them as my grandchildren were already grown up. Her daily walk with the Lord was felt by all of us and so appreciated. My condolences to all of you. - Posted by: Marion M Blair (first cousin Saskatoon ) on: Jun 14, 2021

  • I feel so fortunate to have seen Peg almost two years ago in Manitoba for my cousin Beryl's 75th birthday celebration. That of course, was the last time I saw her. Peg loved her family. Peg also had a special place in her heart for my Dad and Mom, Oscar and Hilda. They loved Peg in return. My condolences to the girls and Brian and families for such a huge loss in their lives. - Posted by: Lynda Nemeth (Peg was my cousin Bill's wife) on: Jun 12, 2021

  • How do you find the words to explain the deep sorrow my family feels with the loss of a special lady like Marg? We shared so much together over the years & even though the miles separated us these past years frequent phone calls kept us current in our life happenings. my deepest sympathy to all of you in the loss of your dear mom, grandma & sister. hugs, Joyce - Posted by: Joyce Hayko (friend) on: Jun 12, 2021
