Agnes was born in the Ukraine and immigrated to Canada. She made her home in Watrous, Saskatchewan and then moved to Winnipeg, Manitoba where she worked at Christie Biscuits. While in Winnipeg she met Rudolf and after marrying they continued to live in Winnipeg. Then in the early 1970’s the family moved to the Okanagan, first settling in Kelowna and then moving to Summerland to own an orchard. In the 1980’s the family moved back to Kelowna where she continued to work as a cook at a Retirement home. In 1993 Agnes retired and her retirement was filled with days of gardening, baking or canning all the fruits of the Okanagan.
Agnes will be remembered for chatting away with someone everywhere she would go and making them laugh in their conversation.
