August 10, 1934 - April 6, 2016
Margaret Rose Lockie was born on August 10, 1934, to Henry and Mary Langlois near Perigord, Sask. She was the second of five children.
Margaret grew up on the farm near Perigord and this is where she learned her extremely hard work ethic that many admired. She attended school in Perigord and had many stories of her friends and the nuns who taught her.
Once out of school, she met Ronnie Lockie and the two were soon married in Winnipeg. They resided in Winnipeg in the winters while Ronnie worked for Eatons. The summers were spent farming on the family farm near Kelvington. Soon the family farm became their permanent residence and they started their family.
Ronnie and Margaret had four boys, Brian, Larry, Keith and Corey. Ronnie worked at the Sask. Liquor Board Store and both grain and cattle farmed. Margaret worked at the Kelvington Union Hospital as an aide where she made many friends and fond memories.
In June 1978, Ronnie passed away. This prompted Margaret and the two remaining boys at home (Keith and Corey) to leave the farm and move into Kelvington.
Margaret resided in Kelvington for several years and then moved to Saskatoon. It was here she met Art Lamoureux. They were quickly inseparable. Together they bought an acreage east of Saskatoon. Margaret flourished at the acreage. She took great pride and joy in her yard. She was always a pristine gardener and the acreage was no different. Every tree, every plant were trimmed to perfection and Margaret loved showing it off. Margaret and Art also enjoyed their the animals they had on the acreage. They consisted of llamas, miniature goats, miniature donkey, and, of course, their wonderful dog "Buddy," a small Shih Tzu. They enjoyed the peacefulness and serenity of the acreage for several years and then sold it as it was getting to be a lot for them to keep up. They moved into an apartment for a brief time and then made their move out to Sunset Estates, where Art still resides.
Margaret was a hard-working, fun-loving woman. She enjoyed visiting, gardening, playing cards and her family. In earlier years she loved to travel and went on many excursions with and without Art. She was always up for an adventure of any kind. She was an amazing, strong woman who was always there whenever needed.
Margaret was predeceased by her husband Ronnie; her son Keith; her parents; and her sister Elsie.
She has left to mourn her partner, Art; her sons, Brian (Judi), Larry (Louise) and Corey (Jennifer); her brother Leonard (Cheryl); nine grandchildren; four great-grandchildren; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.
