Marg is survived by her beloved husband Ben Reimer; children Gerald (Kathy) Reimer of Burdett, Harvey (Sue) Reimer of Bow Island, Dorothy (Reg) Robey of Bow Island and Brent (Susan) Reimer of Burdett; son-in-law Walter (Rhonda) Wiens of Bow Island as well as numerous grandchildren and great grandchildren.
She was predeceased by her daughter Eleanor Wiens and great granddaughter Cara Hope Hume.
Margaret was the third child of Bernhard and Elizabeth Doerksen. She grew up in the Coaldale area and it was here she learnt her hard work ethic, her love for God and family, and her ability to tackle anything that was put before her.
She completed grade eleven and then quit school to earn money. Marg hoed beets, worked for Matkins as a live in nanny and housekeeper and as a clerk in the Del Monte store. She attended bible school in Coaldale and sat behind a young man who would one day become the love of her life, Bernhard (Ben) Reimer. They were married August 23, 1953 and lived in Vauxhall for a short time before settling around the Burdett area.
Her life was always filled as she tackled her most important job of being her husbandâ€™s right hand man on the farm, the supporter for her husband as he joined many committees and explored new adventures. Marg nurtured her five children Eleanor, Gerald, Harvey, Dorothy and Brent.
Money was tight in the early years of marriage. She learnt how to cook and bake after being married and was able to be creative and always had room at her table for one more person. Marg ran a small business from her house selling milk, eggs and cream to surrounding neighbors. This was a lot of work but she loved the visits and friendships she cultivated because of this opportunity. Once a week Ben and Marg drove to Lethbridge to deliver cream and eggs, visit family and buy supplies.
Marg was a fighter and tackled every situation with the same determination. She was ill with heat exhaustion and gallbladder issues during her young married years. Marg survived her house burning down and being badly burnt as well as guillain barre syndrome. Doctors would give her little hope and she would defy odds and be up and working again in record time. Her last illness of dementia was one that she was unable to conquer.
Marg learned to cook and bake like a pro. She loved sewing quilts, cleaning, nurturing her flowers and teaching her children the art of hospitality. Marg loved her grandchildren and lived to make special treats for her grandchildren and great grandchildren. No family get together was complete unless everyoneâ€™s favorite treats were there.
Marg loved reading and shared that love with many. She read a variety of books but her favorite and most loved was her Bible.
Marg used her skills by volunteering for the Burdett ladies auxiliary and the church â€“ teaching clubs, Sunday school and serving on the hostess committee. She made many lifelong friendships.
Marg loved God, her family and friends and showed us how much she loved us by being a giving loving woman.
She will be missed by her family and friends. Auf Wiedersehen.
If friends so desire, memorial tributes in Margâ€™s name may be made directly to the Gideons International in Canada, Box 3619, Guelph, Ontario N1H 7H2 (http://www.gideons.ca).
