Margaret Ann Buglas (née Ovens), beloved wife, mother and grandmother passed away peacefully with family by her side on Saturday, December 4th, 2021 at the age of 86 after living several years with Alzheimer’s disease.
Marg was born on July 6th, 1935, in Cut Knife, Saskatchewan, to Doris and Slim Ovens. She was the third of four children. Marg was predeceased by her parents and her 3 brothers Bill, Jack and Frank Ovens as well as several other beloved relatives.
Holding Marg close to their hearts are: her devoted husband of 63 years, Fred; her four children and their families: Ted; Tom (Sandra), Arthur, Lauren; Don (Jacalyn), Keenan, Carter and Michelle (Kevin Pylypow) Charis, Adina, Carson, Tyson and Madison; members of our extended family and friends.
Marg grew up on the family farm near Gallivan, Saskatchewan. Being the only girl, she preferred to be out in the farmyard with her three brothers rather than hanging about in the house. Her childhood revolved around her horses and dogs.
Marg left home to attend teacher’s college in 1956, and in 1958 she married her high-school sweetheart, Fred. Together, Marg and Fred enjoyed many adventures over the years, teaching in northern communities, travelling to different parts of the world and raising four active children. They settled in North Battleford, where they lived from 1964 to 1989 before moving to Saskatoon.
Marg was a lifelong caregiver, devoted to her family. She never wanted to be the center of attention, but was a pillar of strength and loving kindness to anyone in need. She always saw and focused on the good in everything. Her children and grandchildren were the center of her world.
The family will hold a celebration of Marg’s life in the spring of 2022. Condolences for the family can be left at www.eternalmemoriesfuneral.ca Arrangements have been entrusted to Trevor Watts of Eternal Memories Funeral Services in North Battleford, Saskatchewan.
Those wishing to honour Marg are invited to make a donation in her name to the Alzheimer’s Society of Saskatchewan or to the Canadian Cancer Society.
Our family is grateful to the staff at St. Anne’s Home for the compassion shown and support given to both Mom and Dad over the past three years.
