March 18, 1942 ~ June 15, 2020 (age 78)


Margaret F. Mack, 78, went to be with the Lord on June 15, 2020 with her family by her side. She was born March 18, 1942 in Glendive, MT to George and Frances Lovelace.  She lived in Glendive/Mile City area until she was around 17 yrs. old.   She then moved to Big Timber, MT with her family.  She worked at the Grand Motel as a waitress, that is where she met her husband, Virnie Mack through his mom Lucille Mack.

They married and made their home in Big Timber where they had four of their children, Cindy, Patti, Keith and Doris before moving to Libby, MT, where they raised their family and had three more children, Robin, Frank and Carol, after several years of marriage, they divorced.

 From a small child until the day she went to be with the Lord, Margaret loved horses.  She always said she could count on them. They gave her so much comfort and joy her whole life.  She didn’t own a horse that didn’t receive her hugs and kisses.

Margaret was a hard worker and good at any job she did, from raising a large family, breaking horses, waitressing, gas station attendant, bartender, mill worker and miner.  She also worked hard to get her diploma at the age of 72, we are so proud of her…  She taught us many things, such as working hard, how to love each other, canning, cooking, hunting, to do crafts, gardening, the game of Yahtzee, how to have fun and how to love and share the word of God.

Her love and passions were horseback riding, music and instrument playing, fishing, hunting, doing crafts, wood working, leather work, gardening, antler hunting, watching PBR, and playing Yahtzee, but most of all her family.  Margaret was a very caring, sensitive person to everyone and everything.  She was blessed to have lots of special friends, Connie, Carolyn, Karen, Verna, Marshall, Florence and many more.

Margaret is preceded in death by her parents, grandson Tyler Michels, step son Larry Mack, son in law Glen Peek, brothers Roy and Ricky, sisters Mary, Betty, Diane and Kathryn.

Survivors include her children Cindy Peek, Patti Regh (Jim), Keith Mack (Betty), Doris Langley (Mike), Robin Henderson (Alan), Frank Mack (Pam) and Carol Mack; 30 grandchildren, 47 great grandchildren and 3 great great grandchildren; brother Wes; sisters Cheryl and Sandy, and several nieces and nephews.
