Margot Bartnik/Bowman, resident of Our Lady of Victory Nursing Home of Bourbonnais was called home to our Lord on Thursday October 20th, 2016. Her devotion to love, family, and uncompromising belief in God supported her in her life, and ultimately gave her much needed peace when she needed it most.

Margot lived a life that is worth remembering as her love of Family, God, and Life were always front and center. She had a passion for not only for her sons, grandchildren, great grandchildren, but for all types of life especially animals. Her passion for life was powerful and without compromise. With her hobbies of traveling, photography, and theater she created memories not only for herself but for her entire family. At times, she lived life through the lens of a camera as she always wanted to capture important moments to share with everyone. She cared deeply for others and this care seemed to centralize all aspects of her life. Her devotion to the Lord carried her throughout her life in such a way that she was a messenger of the Lord. Her deep belief and unwavering commitment to the Lord helped steer a large family to become strong and unified under the most important aspect of life of which is Love.
