Margaret “Muggs” (Beaulieu) Hardy, “Nenookaasi” which means “Hummingbird” 79, of Cass Lake, Minnesota began her journey to the spirit world on Friday, June 21st, 2019 from the Sanford Hospital in Bemidji, MN. She was born on September 29, 1939 in Bemidji, MN the daughter of Ida (Fairbanks) and George Beaulieu.
Born and raised in Bemidji, blessing our lives with a hero’s love and loyalty. She taught us dedication to family, friends and those in need. With a dedicated heart and strong will spirit and soul, our family had to sadly let her go.
Grandchildren, children, adopted families galore, Margaret “Muggsy” Hardy was a matriarchal beauty we adored.
A life filled with enjoyments of going to the casino, beading, rummaging, recycling and porcupine work, helping those in need and always trying to feed people with her delicious dishes she cooked. Her “Tuna Mac” was infamous, she would make it for often for other services. Muggs grew up watching her brothers 8 track race in the cities. That sparked an interest in her, and she began racing in the powder puff races and diagnosing mechanical issues by ear. Muggs loved feeding and watching her hummingbirds and she couldn’t go to bed at night without watching Stephen Colbert. Margaret was a collective soul of treasures, a hummingbird always on the go.
She is welcomed to the spirit world by her parents; George and Ida Beaulieu, daughter; April J. Hardy, son; Daniel J Hardy, siblings; Kenneth Beaulieu, Sr., Anson Beaulieu, Roy Beaulieu and Robert Holstein, aunties; Dora Duffy, Ruby Losh and Beatrice Losh, uncles; Henry Johnson and Robert Johnson.
