MARGARET ANNE NOWATZKI (published on January 25, 2010)

MARGARET ANNE NOWATZKI (nee Wilson) September 12, 1950 January 22, 2010 My Story.... On Friday, the 22nd of January, 2010, with my family by my side, I left this world to find eternal rest, after a battle with lung cancer. I grew up in Selkirk, Manitoba with my parents Carl and Hallie Wilson and my older brother Doug, who ironically also lost his life to lung cancer in 2005, leaving behind his wonderful wife (and my dear friend) Colette, and his sons Carl and Jeremy (Lory) Wilson. After high school I chose to go into Pharmacy at the University of Manitoba and it was there that I met my dear husband Jeff. I enjoyed my time working as a pharmacist, feeling good if I could help someone by not just filling their prescriptions, but by talking to them, counselling them and hopefully answering questions they had. But my most important job in life was raising my three beautiful children Karen Anne, Heather Lynne and Jeffrey Alexander. They brought me so much joy, pride, laughter and of course some consternation at times. I will miss them so much as well as my son-in-law Brock McMillan, and my beautiful grandson Carson (my sweetie pie). I was so lucky to be his Nana and get to see him from when he was less than one day old until now. I will miss my many Nowatzki in-laws, nieces and nephews. I will also miss my many co-workers, especially those at Jack Andrews Pharmacy and St. James Pharmacy. There are also many friends and people I volunteered with over the years that I always thought of fondly. There will be no formal service. A private, family interment of ashes will be held at Chapel Lawn Memorial Gardens. A Come and Go Reception for all who wish to support my family, to visit, reminisce and talk about the future will be held at the banquet hall at The Gates on Roblin on Wednesday, January 27th from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Many thanks go out to all the doctors, nurses and caregivers who guided me through my illness, especially Alla and Marianne, and all those who called to talk or sent best wishes, prayers and flowers. I especially want to thank my sister-in-law Royce who was always there, my confidante exceptionelle . In recent years I joined the Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba, first to attend groups to help me with my depression, later as a volunteer. This has been a very important connection for me. If anyone wishes to make a donation to Mood Disorders Association of Manitoba, 4 Fort St., Winnipeg, MB or a charity of one's choice, it would be very much appreciated. In closing most of all is Love, Mom
