July 10, 1927 – April 28, 2012
Agnes was born and raised in North Vancouver, and after leaving school she started her career with the CIBC. She met her husband Douglas in North Vancouver. They married in 1948 and moved to Nanaimo in the early 50’s where they raised their family. Agnes was very creative and enjoyed many hobbies and interests including a love of art, flower arranging, interior and garden design, entertaining, and playing bridge just to name a few. She transformed her homes and gardens into wonderful paradises, which she loved to share. Agnes had many groups of close friends, one of which she met for lunch every Thursday for over 30 yeas. Agnes was also a member of the Nanaimo Chinese Memorial Society and the local chapter of the Beta Sigma Phi sorority.
Agnes is survived by her husband Douglas; sons, Jim (Gwen) and Malcolm (Robyn); daughters, Jeanie and Susan (Mike); grandsons, Wade (Paola), Brandon and Cameron; granddaughters, Amy and Bonnie; sister, Ellen Groundwater (Harry); brother, Francis Stewart (Gwen), and many nieces and nephews.
The family would like to express our appreciation for the wonderful care given to Agnes by all of the staff at Kiwanis Lodge. A Memorial Service will be held at Sands Funeral Chapel, 1 Newcastle Avenue, Nanaimo, at 11:00 a.m. on Saturday, May 5, 2012. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory of Agnes may be made to a charity of your choice.
