Agnes was born in Matheson, Ontario, August 22, 19034 and passed on February 27, 2016 at Shuswap Lake General Hospital at the age of 81 years.

Predeceased by her parents Percy and Martha and sisters Joan (Bill) and Mary.  Agnes leaves hubby John (Jack) of 63 ½ years, daughters Debbie (Brian), Christine (David) and Donna (Willy), two granddaughters Kelly (Kory) and Semana (Nick), grandson Daniel,  great grandkids Mya Jane, Keenan, Ben and Luke as well as a multitude of great friends especially in Sorrento Place on the lake where we have lived since 1988.

She spent her junior years in northern Ontario, moved to Baie Veate in Newfoundland where she worked in a quality control laboratory in an asbestos mill.  In 1973 moved to Surrey, BC where she working in an office and sold furniture; and we have a house full of furniture.  In 1985 moved to Kamloops, BC where she worked in an office, moving to Sorrento in 1988 and have enjoyed the many friends throughout the 28 years here.

Agnes loved her garden and loved to cook and entertain friends for dinners and happy hours.  Many winters were spent away in Arizona, Hawaii and Florida where she loved to lay in the sun, swim in the pool, soak in the hot tub and was a good shuffle board player.  She was once caught in a big wave in Hawaii and was rescued by a good friend who also retrieved her bathing suit which she had not missed.

Thanks to the many doctors that cared for her and the wonderful staff at Shuswap Lake General Hospital where she spent her last days.

Thanks to Fischer’s Funeral Services for their assistance with all the final details and necessary paperwork; also to the staff at Salmon Arm Credit Union in Sorrento for arranging all the necessary changes.

There will be no service by request.  Her ashes will be scattered at a later date when the family can be together.
