Obituary

After a lifetime of experiences and memories, Margaret Jean von Eschen of Prince Albert passed away on May 7th, at the age of 95. Margaret Booker (known as Peg by her family) was born November 20, 1924 on the family farm at Cookson, SK. As a young woman, she enlisted in the army, which took her to Montreal. Mom would always speak fondly of her time in the service. After the war, she worked as a seamstress and also attended business college. She met and married her sweetheart, Robert von Eschen, while working at the P.A. Sanitorium. Soon after Mom & Dad were married, they bought their first little house across the river. As the family grew, they eventually moved to the family home on 19th street.

We were fortunate to have our mom at home with us during our growing years. Mom and Dad were our biggest cheerleaders and always supported us in any sports or events we participated in. Mom never missed a chance to sit in the bleachers. Whether it was hockey, baseball, soccer, figure skating, skiing, judo, drama, music, art exhibits, girl guides, scouts, choir, dance, she was there for all of her kids and grandkids. Mom was a member of the PA legion for 54 years. She enjoyed sewing, baking preserving, reading, and puzzling, as well as camping, but mostly she enjoyed spending time with her family. Family gatherings were very important, and it was not unusual for mom to cook a thirty-pound turkey and have 40 people for dinner. The welcome mat was always out.

Once Dad retired, Mom & Dad enjoyed many trips, following their beloved PA Raiders, cruises, bus tours, camping trips in their little Boler camper, and visiting their grandchildren. Even after Dad’s passing, mom continued her love of travel; a train trip to BC, a trip to Scotland at age 85 and a shopping trip to Minneapolis at age 89, and numerous road trips to see her kids and grandkids.

Margaret continued to live in PA until her health began to decline. She then settled into her new home at Diamond House in Warman, where she was cared for and loved as one of the family. She continued reading, doing crosswords and jigsaw puzzles for as long as she could, as she really enjoyed challenging herself.

Margaret was predeceased by her husband Robert, her grandson Brady Gasmo, Siblings Kay McDonald, Bill Booker, Corky Booker, Norma Pritchard and Terry Booker, as well as numerous other family members. Mom has left her legacy in her extended family; children Robert von Eschen, Kevin (Dani) von Eschen, Lee-Ann (Rick Pihach) Proulx, Mark (Melissa) von Eschen, Burke von Eschen, Meridee Terry) Gasmo; Grandchildren; Rebecca (Dennis) Pott, Sarah, Emma, Mitchell & Katie, Amanda (Ian) Brooks, Cailyn, Ethan & Kiera. Ryan (Catherine) von Eschen, Addilyn & Elliana, Nick & Noel Matchett, Brennan (Josie) Gasmo, Dustin (Kaylee) Gasmo, Coelton (Ashlynn) von Eschen & Luke von Eschen, Ayden and Declan Coleman as well as her sister-in-law Paulette Booker, as well as many other nieces and nephews and extended family members.

A private family service will be held, with a celebration of life to be scheduled at a later date. Arrangements in care of MacKenzie Chapel & Crematorium Brian and Bev Stobbs, Mervin Oleksyn, Renée Phaneuf – Funeral Directors. www.MacKenzieChapel.ca . 306.763.8488.
