Peacefully on April 6th, 2019 at Niagara General Hospital in her 96th year. Loving wife of William for 62 years. Cherished mother of Rhonda (Victor) and Sandra (Chris). Loving sister to Ruby (Edwin), both deceased, and Doris (Carl). Greatly missed by her nephews Robert and David, extended family and friends. Her greatest joys were time spent with family, friends and her cats.
Agnes was born in Jamaica in 1923 and came to Canada in 1952. We always used to joke with her as to why you would leave such a warm, beautiful Caribbean island to come to a country with such cold winters. But she loved Canada and never regretted her decision. She made many friends, enjoyed working at the bank, met her husband, had a family and never looked back. She was a wonderful mother and wife and grandmother to all our furry friends, past and present, Mickey, Fuzz, Sapphire, Oscar, Rumball, Fudgie, Mr. Bumbles and of course Savannah, who watched over her until the very end. She enjoyed playing cards, bowling, gardening and walking and would never say no to a rum and coke or a coffee with her good friend Panama Jack. She always had a smile for you and something nice to say. She will be dearly missed by all who were fortunate enough to know her.
