In memory of
Margaret Reinboldt
November 16, 1943 - December 31, 2020 - Age 77

It is with a heavy heart that we announce the death of our beloved mother. Margaret Rose Reinboldt (nee Riffel), passed away in Medicine Hat with family by her side on Wednesday, December 31, 2020, at the age of 77 years, after a short battle with cancer. She was the beloved wife of the late Donald Reinboldt for 51 years. Margaret Rose was born in Prelate, Saskatchewan on November 16, 1943. She was raised in Fox Valley, Saskatchewan where she attended school and spent her childhood. Margaret Rose Riffel married Donald Reinboldt on March 23, 1963 in Medicine Hat at St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church. In 1966, they moved to Fox Valley, Saskatchewan to take over the family farm where they began a very successful trucking company, Don Reinboldt Trucking & Excavating. During those years, they also began to travel, having adventures beyond our dreams in Las Vegas, Mexico, Hawaii, and Laughlin. She was also a devoted mother and wife who enjoyed spending time with her family, especially watching her grandkids grow. Her greatest joys were her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. She was blessed with exceptional culinary skills and got great joy from baking and cooking her wonderful meals to her family and friends. In her spare time, Margaret was an avid gardener, loved planting flowers and enjoyed watching game shows, hockey and curling. She will be remembered fondly and sorely missed. Margaret Rose was predeceased by her parents, Vincent and Rose Riffel, and her husband, Donald. She is survived by her loving children; Donita (Warren) Meyer, Dean (Denise) Reinboldt, Darcy Reinboldt; grandchildren, Stefan (Chantel) Meyer, Kassondra Meyer (Trevor Lethbridge), Dayton and McKenna Reinboldt (Tye Opalinski), Ashton and Santana Reinboldt (Daniel Janik); great-grandchildren, Goldie and Navy Meyer, and Riley Yamada; two sisters, Irene Koch, and Louise (Tom) Sandau, and numerous nieces and nephews. She will always leave a legacy of care, warmth, and strong sense of family. Her family would like to offer our sincere thanks and gratitude to Dr. B Durand, and his medical staff. As well, a heartfelt thanks to Dr. El-Gehani  and the wonderful staff at the Margery E. Yuill Cancer Centre.

My heart felt condolences on the loss of your mom and your granny. The memories that you all made with her will be in etched in your hearts forever. She was an incredibly strong woman who when called upon never ceased to amaze the people around her. She loved Donald with everything she had and proved that during his battle with cancer. Her many trips to Laughlin and Vegas were filled with many hours of laughing and gambling. Her birthday trip with her kids and spouses to Palm Springs was one of her favorites. She truly cherished any time she spent with them. She will be telling Donald about their beautiful great grandchildren as they brought her so much joy and happiness.

Donita, Dean, Darcy and families, We were very sad to hear the news of your dear mother, grandmother and great friend. Margaret was a very special lady who lived, loved and was very proud of her family and achievements of each of you. She was a great hostess, a great cook and fun to be with. We remember all the good times with both parents. She is dancing with her lifelong partner in heaven. May God give all of you the strength and courage to carry on. May her memories live in each of your hearts forever. Blessings.
