In Memory of

Margaret LaBarre

September 3, 1942 – January 7, 2018
Pequot Lakes, Minnesota

Margaret passed away unexpectedly of a brain aneurism in January of 2018. While this was hard for us, we know that she is rejoicing with her Lord – and for this we are eternally grateful.

It is better to give than receive.

Many were blessed by simply knowing Margaret. She was a loving wife, wonderful mother, caring grandma and cherished friend. She had a natural way of making everyone feel special. She accepted people for who they were and encouraged those who were struggling. She had such a positive outlook on life and took things in stride. She was a great role model.

Throughout her life, Margaret had a heart for serving others. Professionally, she worked as an ICU nurse for fifteen years and then continued serving as a public health nurse for 25 years. She continued nursing after retirement serving as a parish nurse and conducting preschool screenings. Personally, she was active in church, played piano, served as a leader in AWANA, sewed for Eve’s Quilts and went on multiple mission trips to Ecuador.

Margaret always had an open, welcoming home to share. Her hospitality and willingness to give of her time and resources was amazing. Even more impressive was that fact that she made it look easy.

It is very fitting that even in her death, Margaret was a giver. As an organ donor, Margaret’s precious gifts have helped others in need. We pray that her generosity blesses the recipients and their families and that the research enabled through her contributions will make positive strives in the medical community that benefit us all.

Margaret gave us so many great memories that we will forever cherish. We thank God that our lives were blessed with her presence.

Your life has blessed us all. Love, Your Family
