Margaret Joan LaClaire

 Dec. 14, 1931- Nov 10, 2022

On Thurs. Nov. 10, 2022, Margaret LaClaire, a beloved Mother, Grandmother, and Great Grandmother passed away at age 90 at Wheatland Lodge in Leask.

Margaret leaves to mourn her children Donna Smandych of Prince Albert and Pat Reichenberg (Bob) of Warman.  She also leaves behind her Grandchildren David Smandych(Natalie), Amanda Smandych(Jon) both of Edmonton and Mike Reichenberg of Warman, and Great Grandchildren Henry, William and Julianne.  Margaret also leaves behind her special nieces Bettyanne, Millie, Linda, and nephews Jim and Lorne, as well as many other nieces and nephews.

Margaret was predeceased by her husband Cliff, her dear son Billy, a brother Tom Luck (Corinne), sister Thelma(Charlie), her mother and father, Mildred and George Luck and her aunt Eris and uncle Leslie Hatchell, and son in law David Smandych.

Margaret grew up in the Rich Valley District and had fond memories of her classmates and neighbors.  Margaret married Cliff LaClaire and they farmed in the Rozilee District.  Margaret and Cliff loved their farm and were very good custodians of their land, enjoying watching their crops grow and prosper.  Margaret was a very skilled gardener and homemaker and enjoyed sharing her produce and goodies she baked.  Margaret loved the farm, nature and family and friends but due to declining health Cliff and Margaret sold their farm and moved to Shellbrook.  She quickly learned to love her new place and her new neighbors.  In 2016 Margaret moved to Caleb Senior Complex in Prince Albert and spent 2 happy years there and then due to declining health moved to Wheatland Lodge and was there until her passing.  Margaret appreciated everyone that was kind to her throughout her life.  The family would like to thank all caregivers and good friends, who were a support to her in the past and up until her passing.

Beautiful Life

A beautiful life came to a sudden end. She died as she had lived everyone’s friend

She was always thoughtful, loving, and kind, What a precious memory she left behind,

She left us peacefully, her thoughts unknown. But she left us memories we are proud to own.

Treasure Her, God in your garden of rest. For in our world, she was one of the best.
