The family of Margaret “Maggie” Newkirk are deeply saddened to announce her sudden passing on October 5, 2019 at her home in Moose Jaw, SK at the age of 77. She was born on May 29, 1942 in Esterhazy, SK. During her life she lived in several places throughout Saskatchewan and spent the last 10 years in Moose Jaw. She was predeceased by her parents: Margaret “Nan” and Gerald Clarke, and brothers: Gerald “Nappy” Clarke and Keith Clarke. She will be forever missed by her daughter: Kim (Brent) Drozda, sons: Ken (Darla Hoium) Newkirk and Brad (Candace) Newkirk, grandchildren: Silver (Mike) Dukart, Kaylee (Kyle) Mackay, Clarke (Brooklyn) Newkirk, Karrah Newkirk, Reece Newkirk, and Caleb Newkirk, and great-grandchildren: Oaklyn Mackay and Niko Newkirk. Maggie, Mugzy or Gran as she was known to most people, loved to visit, especially over a good meal or the phone. Whether you’d only known her for a few minutes or for a lifetime, she could always talk your ear off, and it felt like you’d known her forever. The thing she loved to talk about most was her grandchildren. She was always so proud of everything they did. It might have been one of them scoring the winning goal of the game, or getting a good grade in school, if you were around her you were going to hear about it. Over the past couple of years, she was blessed to have two great-grandchildren, and a whole new set of stories to share. She had a love for all things cooking, from preparing a huge meal to reading cookbooks to always having the cooking channel playing on her TV. Her amazing cooking talents were passed down from her mom, and now her daughter is following in their footsteps. A private family service will be held at a later date. In Maggie’s memory, donations can be made to the MS Society of Canada.
