Margaret “Marge” Irene Friesen

December 17, 1940 - October 30, 2023

It is with deepest sorrow that we announce the passing of our mother, grandmother and great grandmother Marge Friesen.

She leaves to mourn her daughters Gail Wirsch, Rae (Warren) Jackson and her son Daryl (Carol) Friesen.  Grandchildren Kylie (Jonathan) Kaminsky, Kayla (Jason) Pattison, Nikita (Shawn) Van Damme, Alexandra Friesen, Rebecca Friesen and 9 great grandchildren. Along with four siblings and numerous nieces and nephews.

Marge was predeceased by her husband Wilfred Boyd, parents John and Christina Poschner, in-laws Pete and Dinah Friesen, grandson Dusty Wirsch and son-in-law Porky Wirsch.

Mom was born in Vassar, MB. She married the love of her life, Boyd, in September of 1959. In 1961 they welcomed their first child Gail followed by Rae in 1963 and Daryl in 1970. 

In 1972 they purchased the Fireside Inn and relocated to Carman, MB. Marge and Boyd were business entrepreneurs throughout their lives.  In their latter years they drove transport truck until retirement.

Mom enjoyed gardening, reading, travelling and volunteer work.  If you knew Mom you knew she was kind, non-judgemental, had a heart of gold and was honest as the day was long.  Her house and her heart was always open to family and friends. She was the rock our family was built on and will be dearly missed.

Marge’s family would like to thank the doctors and staff at HSC in wards GH7 & GH6 for their excellent care during her short stay.

Funeral service will be held on Tuesday, November 7, 2023 at 2:00 p.m. at Doyle's Funeral Home.

Memorial donations may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation or to Mennonite Disaster Services.
