Margaret Tylski

Margaret Tylski

November 29, 1958 – January 27, 2024

Margaret was preceded to heaven by parents, Karl and Mary Jo Raff; and son, Karl Tylski. She is survived by her husband, Ken Tylski; son, Allen (Abby); daughter, Traci (Tim) Owens; grandsons, Wyatt and Cole Tylski; and granddaughters, Meredith and Makenzie Owens.

Margaret was well known for her involvement in the recreational league baseball community of Omaha in the early 2000’s. Margaret was directly involved in running day to day operations for the Westgate Westside Athletic Association and made it her life passion to create a fun environment for the kids. She consistently reminded coaches and umpires that their sole function was to support the kids to have fun in the game of baseball or softball, and nothing less would be tolerated.

In recent years, Margaret and and Ken were avid traveling campers who doted on their loving, furry companions. They enjoyed the outdoors and exploring new places together. Nothing was better than a good bonfire with friends.

Margaret had a way of touching loves in a motherly way that some have described her as an “extra” mom known as “Mama T.”  There was always extra food and extra space at the table for friends who needed a seat. She thrived on supporting people in her professional and personal life. While she will be dearly missed in life, her spirit lives on forever in the lives she has touched.

CELEBRATION OF LIFE CEREMONY: Friday, February 2, 2024, 6:00 – 8:00 p.m. at the West Center Chapel, 7805 West Center Rd.

    So sorry for your loss. I spent quite a few years working with Margaret at Westgate with baseball and softball. She really cared about those kids and was a blast to work with. Your family is in our prayers.

    Ken and family, I am so saddened to hear of Margaret’s passing. I met her while working at Marriott. We became friends instantly. She loved to talk about camping, her fur babies, her beloved family and Sunday dinners together. We shared pressure cooker recipes and stories about family life. She was such a warm, welcoming person. May you find comfort in the loving memories of her.

  • Kris Checkett Posted January 31, 2024 12:17 pm

    Margaret you will be missed by all of us whose lives you touched. To Ken and all the family, I am very sorry for your loss. I will miss her and all her advice she loves giving. I will miss our long talks on the phone at night. See you again someday. You and Dana can sit up there and laugh at us and watch over us.

    First we knew Margaret through baseball. Mark was coaching and involved with the Millard Athletic Association. He worked with Margaret often coordinated tournaments and schedules. He said often “a lot of the guys are intimidated by Margaret, not me, she and I are too much alike for her to scare me.” He respected her deeply. We grew to know and love Margaret more when my “work daughter” reconnected with Allen and they married. Allen would later work with Mark. Our families became forever connected. The thing I will most remember about Margaret was how profoundly proud she was of Traci and Allen, Tim and Abby, Meredith, Mackenzie, Wyatt and Cole. Her children and grandchildren were the sun and the moons in her world. To see that tough woman’s tender heart for her family. It was special. Love and sympathy to you all.

    Margaret was a gem and so glad that I had the pleasure to work with her. She loved her family so much and was such a fighter. Stay strong and remember her with that smile and laughter. My thoughts are with all of you during this time, I know that she is watching over you.
