Magdalene was born in Kipling, Saskatchewan and moved at an early age to homestead with her parents, Steve and Magdalene Baczuk, west of Milk River. She and her 11 brothers and sisters worked hard during the “dirty thirties” to keep the farm going. She loved the farm life and never complained about the hard work she enjoyed doing.
She loved knitting, crocheting, embroidery, bingo, gardening, and serving fabulous meals on holidays with family and friends. When she moved to town she enjoyed coffee, playing cards, and visiting with her many girlfriends.
