Marguerite (Ryan) Vigoureux was born to James and Mabel McDaniel on January 28, 1925 in Plainview, Arkansas. She spent most of her childhood in Arkansas. Soon after her father?s death when she was 11 years old, her older sister Helen moved the remaining family, Marguerite, her sister Virgie and younger brother, J.A. and their mother Mabel to Corning, California. Marguerite moved to Redding, California in 1941, where she met and married her first love, Guy Monroe Wood, Jr. They moved back to Corning during World War II, where they started their family with the birth of their first daughter, Marie. Diane, Nancy, and later Darlene joined the family. Marguerite became a very young widow with the death of Guy in 1953. Marguerite?s life revolved around her four daughters. Nothing came before her four girls. Family and friends often referred to them as ?Marg?s Girls.?

A very strong young woman emerged from this tragedy, and with the help of her two loving sisters and daughter Marie, managed to work very hard to give her children a wonderful life. In 1959 she met and married Robert ?Bob? Ryan, who was a wonderful father to the three daughters still at home. Bob became ill with cancer in the late 1960's, and Marguerite and Bob left California and moved to Westby, Montana where they operated a small caf? for about two years, then moved to Crosby, North Dakota and bought Andy?s Caf? which was renamed Ryan?s Cafe. As Bob?s health continued to fail, they sold their caf? and moved to western Montana where Bob could pursue the joy of his life, fishing. After Bob?s death in 1978, Marguerite moved to Plentywood where she could be close to family. She went to work at Sheridan Memorial Hospital, where she did what was one of her greatest talents, cooking. She also waited tables at the Alta Vista Caf? which was owned by her daughter Nancy and her husband Ron.

Everyone who knew Marguerite remembered Marguerite. She had a strong, fascinating personality. Her many talents included cooking, baking, sewing, embroidering, crocheting, and gardening. Her main hobby was collecting recipes and cook books.

In 1989 she married Andr? Vigoureux, and became a farmer?s wife in Gladmar, Saskatchewan. She thoroughly enjoyed the quiet solitude. She and Andr? loved to garden and for several years their garden plot covered half a block. That beautiful garden allowed Marguerite to cook and can to her heart?s content, sharing her delights with all of her grateful family. After Andr? ?s stroke they sold the farm and retired to Weyburn, Saskatchewan in 2003. Marguerite became ill with Leukemia in the fall of 2013, and after a courageous battle, on March 16, 2014 the angels came and took our angel home.

Marguerite is survived by her husband, Andr? Vigoureux of Weyburn; her four daughters, Marie Kranig, and her husband Larry, of Redding, California; Diane Mooney and Nancy Morstad and her husband Ron, all of Billings, Montana and Darlene Turner and her husband Mark, of Martin City, Montana. Marguerite?s legacy is her 14 grandchildren, 26 great grandchildren and 12 great-great grandchildren. She was preceded in death by her parents; her first two husbands, and she was the last survivor of a mixed family of multiple siblings.
