Memorial Service for Magda Helena Sprenk

Magda Helena Sprenk, died on Memorial Day at the Merrimack Nursing Home. She was 95 years old.

There will be a Memorial Service on Saturday, June 6th at 11am at the United Church of Warner, followed by a burial and then a reception back at the church. Magda had an amazing life and all are welcome to come celebrate it with us.

Magda was a resident of Warner for about 10 years. She moved here after the birth of her great-grandson, Alex. She helped me and her daughter, Kay Steen, set up Wingdoodle. She loved to paint and sculpt, and take long walks in the woods behind her house. She desperately wanted to meet a bear. She was creative, playful, colorful, very silly, and incredibly brave.

My grandmother thought funerals were gloomy. So, in honor of her playful, artistic spirit, we ask that you do not wear "funeral attire" (unless you normally dress all in black). Also, we will have her paintings on view at the reception, and ask anyone who is willing to cook, to prepare one of my Grandmother's recipes. (email: kay at for recipes).
