MARGARET BEESKAU (published on October 03, 2009)

MARGARET BEESKAU Peacefully on October 2, 2009, my dear Mom and best friend passed away at Beausejour Hospital. Mom will be very lovingly remembered by her only daughter Darlene and son-in-law Don Reimer, her sister Doreen and Doug Legall, special sisters Alma, Ruth (Doug), Irma (Bill), brother-in-law Ewald Beskau, sisters-in-law Kay Henschel and Lena Honke, along with their families and her many friends and relatives. Mom was predeceased by Dad (Alex) in 1981, her parents John and Julia Milke and step-father Henry Baber, sister Martha, brothers Henry, Bill, and Art, step-sisters Elsie and Frieda. Mom and Dad were married on October 9, 1937. They worked hard together at the Falcon Lake bush camp where Mom cooked and sewed parkas for all the men, farming at River Hills, and working hard at everything they did. Mom was a wonderful seamstress and I was always very proud to wear clothes sewn and designed by her. She also did beautiful handwork - crocheted table clothes, doilies, and her lovely petit-point and needlepoint pictures. Much of her work is lovingly displayed in our homes. Many stopped in at Margaret's bakeshop for goodies on a Saturday afternoon. In 1965 Mom was severely injured in a car-train accident and spent over six months in hospital, much of it in ICU. During all that time and ever since, her faith has never wavered and she never complained about the terrible pain she always had. She didn't blame God for her misfortune, but served Him faithfully all her life. Mom was always active at St. Paul Lutheran Church as organist, Sunday School teacher, VBS, ELW (secretary for more than 25 years), active on the church's building committee with Dad. She was also active at Happy Hours Seniors Club in Whitemouth where she resided from 1983 to 2005. She really enjoyed her home there. She then moved to her apartment at Stony Plains Terrace in Beausejour, which she also enjoyed. She always adjusted to whatever happened in her life as she accepted what was happening in her recent hospital stay. Mom was a loving and caring Mother. She treasured her family and her many good friends. She played piano or organ for many a sing-song over the years. She had a quiet elegance about her, and her memory will live on in all who knew her. I will sure miss all the wonderful trips we took together and the fun shopping trips we took when we could get around easier. She was the best! Sincere thanks and appreciation are extended to Drs. N. Van Rensburg and Irma Reich, the wonderful staff at Stony Plains with its special angels, and the nurses and staff at Beausejour Hospital. Funeral Service will be held at St. Paul Lutheran Church in River Hills at 2:00 p.m. October 7 with viewing one hour prior to the service with Pastor Don Reimer officiating. If desired, donations in Margaret's memory may be made to St. Paul Lutheran Church Cemetery Fund. SOBERING FUNERAL CHAPEL CREMATORIUM, Beausejour 268-3510 or MB Toll Free 1-877-776-2220
