It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of our beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, Margaret Elizabeth Knutson, who passed away peacefully on May 4, 2018 at the age of 94 years. Left to celebrate her memory are her five children, Don (Rae) Knutson of Medicine Hat, Randy (Karen) Knutson of Oak Bluff, Manitoba, Barry (Laurie) Knutson of Sherwood Park, Alberta, Cheryl (Grant) Kitts of Briercrest, Saskatchewan, and Karen (Jacques) Poirier of Montreal, Quebec; eleven grandchildren; twelve great grandchildren; her brother, Pat (Golda) Lounsbury and her sister, Hilda Cooper of Ontario. Margaret was a long time resident of Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Mom loved her home there and took great pride in making her yard one of the nicest in the neighbourhood. Her special time was in the morning sitting on her lawn swing looking out onto her back yard while enjoying the sun and music. She made her home welcoming to all and had a way of making everyone feel special. Mom loved music and dancing and belonged to the square and round dancing clubs as well as clogging. She was an avid sports fan; Blue Jays and Riders were her teams. Mom also loved to crochet and knit making beautiful heirlooms. The last few years were spent in Medicine Hat, Alberta. Mom made many friends at the AgeCare Valleyview and loved her life there, especially the weekly baking and ice cream socials. She had a positive effect on everyone that she had contact with. She had a kind and welcoming heart that made you feel good when she was around. Faith was a very important part of her life including the fellowship at the Hillcrest church. We want to thank the AgeCare Valleyview staff and residents for making Mom’s final three years some of the happiest in her life. We would also like to thank 4W at the hospital and St. Joseph’s for their professionalism, caring and understanding of the dignity of life they showed during this difficult time. Mom will be silently remembered without the proceedings of a formal funeral service. As an expression of sympathy donations may be made to the charity of your choice.
