Marg Romonko

Obituary

It is with great sadness that we share the loss of our beloved Margaret (Marg) Olive Romonko.  On Tuesday, June 28, 2022, Marg passed away peacefully at the age of 91 years, at The Chinook Hospice in Calgary, Alberta. Marg had resided at the Trinity Lodge in Calgary for eight years.  Marg lived in Swift Current, Saskatchewan for many years.  Marg was born in Camrose, Alberta on August 29, 1930, and lived with her family in Bittern Lake, Alberta until she was eight years old, when her family moved to a farm in the Pibroch, Alberta area.  Marg went to school at the Thorntonville School for eight years and then continued her education for grades nine and ten by correspondence.   Marg moved to Swift Current with a school friend and the two worked at the Piccadilly Cafe where Marg met William (Bill) Romonko.  They were married on April 29, 1949, in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan, and then made their home and raised three children in Swift Current.  Marg worked at Canada Safeway for 35 years.  During that time many people got to know Marg, and looked forward to talking to her and seeing her lovely smile.  Marg retired from Canada Safeway in 1994.  Marg led a very busy and happy life.  Raising three children, working and her community and church efforts kept her very busy indeed.  During her lifetime she participated in many activities such as softball, bowling, golfing and, of course, her daily walks.  Marg loved to play cards, but especially contract bridge at which she excelled. Marg loved to work with her hands and loved to knit and crochet.  Marg and Bill were very involved with the Grace United Church from when the church first opened until she moved away from Swift Current.  Marg is lovingly remembered by her children, Shirley (Ken) Schwartz; Lorelei (Chuck) Slack and Jeff (Samantha) Romonko.  She leaves behind her seven grandchildren.  Adam (Samaria) Schwartz in Raymond Alberta; Trent (Roksana) Schwartz and Beckey Neuman in Edmonton, Alberta; Kaitlin Slack and her partner Trent Knutson, and Todd Slack in Calgary, Alberta and Hannah and Emily Romonko of Tsawwassen, British Columbia.  She leaves behind five great-grandchildren.  Padon Schwartz of Edmonton, Alberta, and Indiara, Andre, Evie and Ren Schwartz of Raymond, Alberta.  She also leaves behind several nieces and nephews and numerous friends and acquaintances.  Marg was predeceased by her husband, Bill (d. 2005), her daughter Debbie (d. 1953), her father, John Hother and her mother, Olive Hother, and her brothers Stanley and Edward Hother, and her sister Winnifred (Norman) Rochat.  According to her wishes, a family graveside service will take place at a later date when Marg is placed beside her husband Bill in Swift Current.  If family and friends so desire, memorial contributions in Marg’s memory may be made to the Heart & Stroke Foundation. Arrangements entrusted to Leyden Funeral Home and Crematorium, Calgary, Alberta, and Warren’s Funeral Home.  Condolences and tributes may be sent to www.warrensfuneralhome.com.
