Margaret Beier was born on April 25, 1927 at Grosswerder, Saskatchewan. She was the 6th of 7 children born to Alexander and Emilia Rowein. At 16, she went to St Angela's Convent in Prelate, Saskatchewan; but left after 4 years due to homesickness. She then helped her brothers and sisters on their farms and this is where she met her husband. Margaret married Pete Beier on June 14, 1949 and lived on a farm at Compeer, Alberta where they raised their 10 children. After 31 years of marriage Pete passed away. She then moved to Provost where she married Herman Beier on April 25, 1981. Unfortunately, after 25 years, she lost Herman too. She moved to Crestwood Place in July 2005 and then moved to Hillcrest Lodge in October 2012.
Margaret was a very quiet, reserved private person. She loved her family deeply and enjoyed travelling between Edmonton and Provost to be with them. Her passion and love was sewing which she took to the Farmers Market for many years. She also loved making puzzles and doing her word search puzzles.
Her faith was very strong and important to her. She was a CWL member for 60 years and very proud to wear both her 50 year and 60 year pins. She listened to the Rosary CD every day, sometimes twice. She prayed for everyone especially her children. That was part of her nightly routine.
On June 28, 2018 Margaret passed away peacefully with family at her side at the Provost Health Centre.
She will be dearly missed and forever remembered by her children, Doreen (Allen) Osborne and their children, Don (Chandra) their son, Travis; and Jenifer (Ben); Gerald Beier; Bill Beier; Ken (Diane) Beier and their children, Pam her children, Gracie and Carter; Carson (Amy) their children, Preston, Jaxon and Addison and Mike (Leah) their children, Olivia and Ruby; Angeline (Ken) McCaskill and their children, Kendra and Heather; Alvin (Kathy) Beier and their children, Nicholas (Kristina) their children Julia, Katarina, and Danika and Reanne (Jon) their children, Cole and Greyson; Yvonne (Tom) Kohlman and their children, Karmen (Ren) their son Cru and Brad; Lorraine (Tracy) Thomson and their children, Trevor (Julie), Melanie and Jordan; Bob (Brenda) Beier and their children, Chris (Jocelyn) their daughter Victoria; Andrew and Jarod; her sisters, Emilie Beier and Betty Schamber; as well as numerous nieces, nephews, other family and friends.
