On Saturday, September 29, 2012, Marjorie (Metheral) Heintzman passed away peacefully at Weyburn Special Care Home at the age of 91 years. She was predeceased by her husband, Nick Heintzman in 1994; daughter, Karen Hala in 2011; parents, Carman and Mary Metheral in 1977 and 2005; brothers, Harvey in 1964 and Sherwood in 1945; and grandparents, Wm. Samuel and Isabella Metheral and Peter and Barbara Killian. She will be lovingly remembered by her grandsons, Dallas Hala of Medicine Hat, AB, and Dale Hala of Calgary, AB; great grandsons, Nickolas and Daniel Hala; brother, Ron (Tory) Metheral of Weyburn, sister, Audrey Wilkinson of Weyburn, as well as many nieces and nephews. Marge was born August 24, 1921 to Carman and Mary Metheral on a hot summer day on the family farm 2 ½ miles southwest of Weyburn. When she was six years old they moved to a farm located just west of Weyburn. In later years Ron and Tory Metheral lived on the same farm and presently Tyler and Carey Metheral live there with their sons, Mac and Jarrett. Marge attended Souris School and later Weyburn Collegiate, walking back and forth most days. As a teenager she enjoyed attending the country dances and events held at Prospect and South Weyburn Country Schools. During the winter months, Marge and her brother Harvey would often walk from the farm to the Weyburn rink to watch hockey games, freezing while watching the games and then walking the long trip home. Marge married Nick Heintzman in 1940. Nick was an avid banjo and violin player and entertained at many local dances and events. Marge frequently accompanied him and in later years enjoyed reminiscing about how much fun it had been. As a couple they also enjoyed going to hockey and baseball games. They particularly enjoyed attending the Red Wing games and watching their grandsons play hockey. Marge’s hobbies were knitting, sewing and other crafts. In later years she enjoyed painting beautiful water colour pictures. As a member of the “Grand Bend Homecraft Club” Marge learned numerous home-making skills. She was an avid gardener and won an award for “best garden” while living on Qu’Appelle Street. Marge was also a ball player and spent time on a girl’s travelling team and later as a catcher on an inner-city girl’s team. Marge was active in the Grace United Church. She taught Sunday School, was a leader of the “Winona Mission Band” and participated in the “Busy Bee Circle.” The Heinztman family owned and operated a second hand book store and Marge enjoyed time spent with the young people who came to read and buy candy. Nick and Marge were blessed with the birth of their daughter, Karen on June 10, 1942 and when asked what the highlight of her life was she would always say her daughter, Karen. Their relationship over the years was not only mother and daughter but also best friends. Marge was further blessed when she became a “Nanny” to grandsons, Dallas and Dale. More blessings came with great grandsons, Nick and Daniel. Karen returned from Calgary to enjoy her retirement and be close to Marge, but their time together was far too short. When Karen became ill and passed away in 2011 Marge demonstrated amazing strength and loving concern. Marge loved young people and they readily returned the feeling. The “child within” was expressed over the 91 years of her life especially as we witnessed her family of stuffed “monkeys” grow, receiving many of them from friends and relatives. The staff at Special Care Home were her “family.” Marge would often refer to them as her “kids” and we thank them for the loving care she received. The family of Marge feel blessed for the time we have had with our “fun filled little lady.” A Celebration of Marge’s life was held at Grace United Church, Weyburn, SK on October 3, 2012 with Reverend M. Barnabas officiating. Donations in memory of Marjorie may be made to the Weyburn Special Care Home or Grace United Church. Condolences may be left at: www.fletcherfuneralchapel.com.
