Peacefully on Monday, February 28, 2011, Margaret Rachuk passed away at the Beausejour Health Centre at the age of 89 years.

She leaves to cherish her memory her devoted daughter Julie, brother in-law Mike Rachuk, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins and friends.
Margaret was born on February 19, 1922 and grew up in Grand Marais, MB. She married Joe on May 21, 1951 and over the next 31 years, until Joe’s death in 1982, the two of them worked as a team on the family farm in Stead, MB.
