Agnes was a medical secretary and worked at the children’s hospital both in Winnipeg and Vancouver. She was a dedicated mother and her greatest joy was her children and her grandchildren. She enjoyed being with family and playing a little bingo from time to time. She became involved with the ladies’ group “Good Vibrations” who supported one another in their challenges with Parkinsons disease. She will be remembered for her unconditional love, infectious laugh, and bright smile.
