Margaret SAVAGE

Margaret Rose Savage, beloved wife, mother, grandmother, sister, aunt, and friend, passed away on August 16, 2023, at the age of 75. Born on March 19, 1948, on a farm near Neepawa, Manitoba, she was the daughter of Angus and Vera Kasprick. From a young age, Marg displayed the true spirit of a farmgirl, instilling in her the values of hard work, resilience, and resourcefulness. After leaving the farm, she moved to Kenora, where she lived with her brother Gerry and sister-in-law Cathy. It was in Kenora that she met her life partner, Rick, whom she married in 1970. Throughout their 53 years of marriage, Marg lovingly cared for Rick and supported him in his endeavors, particularly his fishing adventures.

Marg is survived by her devoted husband, Rick, their three sons, Brad (Jenn), Curt (Chevonne), and Chris (Chrysti), as well as their seven grandchildren, Jaxen, Ayla, Cameron, Hannah, Alexa, Kaia, and Brodie. She also leaves behind her siblings Gerry (Cathy), Dennis (Karen), Brian (Mary Ann), Doreen, Bev (Rudy), Dianne (Garnett), Jeanette (Dave), and their families. Marg had a special bond with her sister-in-law Marilyn (Carl) and their families in Thunder Bay, often creating cherished memories, such as camping at Lake Shebandowan. Family meant everything to Marg, and she dedicated her life to raising her three sons. Despite the challenges, Marg’s love and support for her boys were unwavering and everlasting. She also adored her grandchildren and took great joy in watching them grow and learn. Marg’s strong faith reassured her that she had raised great men.

Margaret Savage will be remembered for her indomitable farmgirl spirit, her strong work ethic, and the tender care she took of her gardens, which yielded delicious cucumbers and tomatoes. She had a hidden passion for online poker and a poker face to match. During times of lockdown, Marg’s house was always well-prepared with an abundance of supplies, including an impressive collection of Costco toilet paper and duplicates of every essential item. Marg’s generosity knew no bounds – she would care for her grandchildren overnight or open her home (and basement) to provide them with her tender loving care. Many sought solace in Marg’s presence, turning to her for her unconditional love and support. Marg was blessed with numerous special friendships, including Irene, Shauna, Cathy, Marlene, Susan, Diane, and many others.

In addition to being a devoted wife and mother, Marg had a successful 40-year career at Safeway. Her time there resulted in lifelong friendships, as she was known for memorable walks and coffee breaks with her colleagues. Marg and Rick were also passionate leaders in the development and support of youth bowling leagues, owning the original Kenora Bowling alley.

In honor of Marg’s memory, donations can be made to the Children’s Division of the Frank McClymont Memorial Fishing Tournament, held annually in October. Those who wish to make a donation can contact Jenn Savage at jenny-kash@hotmail.com. A Celebration of Life will take place at the Kenora Curling Club on Saturday, September 16, 2023, from 12-4, where friends and loved ones will gather to pay tribute to this remarkable woman, who will forever be remembered as a wife, mother, grandma, sister, aunt, and friend.
