Saint Bernard College in Antigonish, NS. Previous to her retirement, she worked in Finance for Council of Maritime Premiers and Cape Breton Highlands National Park. Agnes unselfishly spent her years after retirement providing love and support for her family members. She always put family needs ahead of her own. In recent years, she loved to spend her time reading, watching figure skating, completing puzzles, and spending hours visiting and having phone conversations with her many friends. Agnes enjoyed hosting holiday meals with her family, especially her nieces and nephews, who were the lights of her life. She will be greatly missed by all who loved her. Agnes was predeceased by her parents and her brother Wayne. She is survived by her brothers, Brian (Gail), West Paradise; Ronnie, North Sydney, and Larry (Sue), Ingonish Beach. She is also survived by nieces and nephews, Nicholas, Dana, Collin, Joseph, Beverly, Kevin; and great-niece and nephews, Brianna, Hayden and Sam. A time of visitation will take place from 11am until 1pm with a funeral mass starting at 1 pm on Saturday, Mar. 7 all in St. Peter's Church, Ingonish with Father Alphonsus Iwuji officiating.

To Brian, Larry & Ronnie,
My sincere condolences to all of you. Agnes was a sweet lady, kind and always ready to lend a helping hand. As a young girl growing up in Ingonish Agnes was an inspiration to most of us. She never gave up and she was always positive. She had a huge smile. She will be missed.
