Agnes Vaudrin, of Nanaimo, BC passed away on September 29, 2013, with her loving husband by her side. She was 80 years old. She was born on November 14, 1932 in St.Victor, Saskatchewan. She is survived by her husband, Marcel Vaudrin, to whom she was married for 61 years. Agnes is also survived by four sons: Denis (wife Deanne), Leo (significant other, Kim), Claude, and Gary (significant other, Tammy). Also survived by 3 grandchildren: Adam, Alise and Jocelynn. She is predeceased by two grandchildren, Shane and Drew.
Agnes was well loved and respected not only by her family, but every person she came to know. As a classy and elegant lady, she set an exceptionally high standard for hard work and fair treatment for everyone. And on the other side, she enjoyed family time, to laugh and reminisce.
In earlier years, while still living in St. Victor, Sask, she was an active curler and skip. For 5 years she became president of the struggling Saskatchewan Curling club. With her time, focus and energy, while working full time and raising a family, she inspired and rejuvenated the club to success. In later years, she and Marcel would make every effort to watch the various curling tournaments on TV, saying now it was easier to watch them do all the hard work, but critiqued them thoroughly, as well. She was of the opinion to give and give, rather than to receive. Her giving was experienced by many.
Funeral services have been lovingly attended by immediate family only. If so desired, donations may be made, in her honour, to the Canadian Diabetes Association or the BC Children’s Hospital, charities she supported on an ongoing basis.
