Margaret Evelyn (Hasper) Blommaert entered into eternal rest at the beautiful age of 98 on November 1, 2022
Margaret was born in the Theodore area to Adolf and Tillie (Gabert) Hasper. Her parents farmed south of Theodore in the Creekside area. Margaret worked on the family farm and helped her mother with her younger brothers. She attended Creekside School. As a young woman, Margaret moved to Brandon, MB and worked at MacKenzie Seeds and then she made a move back to Yorkton and worked at the Yorkton Union Hospital as a nurse's aid.
Margaret met Bernard in 1946 and they married on October 28, 1947 in the Theodore United Church. They built their home together on a farm north of Yorkton. Their marriage was blessed with three sons; Barry, Dennis and Dave.
She was a hardworking farm wife, helping Bernard with harvest, milking cows, raising chickens, turkeys and pigs. She always had a huge garden, along with fruit trees and beautiful flowers beds. She made sure their yard was perfectly landscaped, with not a weed to be found. At the same time raising their sons and maintaining the house. She worked side by side with Bernard for 50 years on the farm.
In 1997 they moved to Yorkton and made the adjustment to city life. She still enjoyed gardening and tending to her flowers. Together once again they worked side by side and soon had one of the best kept yards on their street.
After Bernard’s passing in 2007 Margaret moved to a condo and enjoyed her time there making new friends. She also enjoyed her quiet time for reading, crocheting and knitting. She loved receiving phone calls and visits from family. Margaret was blessed with good health that allowed her to live independently for 13 years. Mom enjoyed her weekly shopping with Dave and a lunch date. During these years she also did some travelling with her son Dennis and wife Lorraine, to Hawaii and a Rhine River Cruise from Amsterdam to Basel Switzerland.
At the age of 96 Margaret moved to The Bentley and she adjusted nicely to her new home. She rather enjoyed the fact that she did not have to cook or clean, and once again made some dear friends.
In July of 2022, mom moved to the Theodore Health Centre, as she required more care. She shared with her family, “I guess I go back to where I started.”
