CHUTE, Margaret



March 6th, 1925 – February 12th, 2019 

Our precious mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother, Margaret Ann Chute, passed into glory on Tuesday, February 12th, 2019 at the age of 93 years and 11 months.

Margaret was born on March 6th, 1925 at Kelfield, SK, the only daughter of Howard and Jean (Kincaid) Kelly. She grew up on the farm in the Kelfield/Dodsland area with her four brothers, completed her schooling in Dodsland, and then attended Briercrest Bible School. While at Briercrest she met Allan Chute, whom she married on October 22nd, 1949. Margaret and Allan lived and farmed in the Tuxford area for many years and later retired into Moose Jaw. They enjoyed travelling to many parts of the world and also spent winter months in Mesa, AZ. Throughout her life Margaret was a member of and actively involved in the Moose Jaw Alliance Church as well as her involvement in the Christian Women’s Club. She was a very artistic lady and created many paintings and ceramic pieces, as well as treasured porcelain dolls. Her sewing skills created clothing not only for herself and her family but also for her porcelain dolls. Margaret was a very hospitable lady and her door was always open to one and all.

She was predeceased by her parents; husband, Allan (2010); grandsons, Reid Chute (1985) and Ryan Chute (2009); and brothers: Gordon, Lorne and Jim Kelly.
