Agnes Catherine Brooks
July 3,1919 ~ October 24, 2012
Agnes Brooks passed on to glory October 24, 2012.
Agnes was born July 3,1919 on the homestead near Moose Jaw, Sask., where she lived until her marriage to Donald Brooks in 1941. They travelled to Creston and bought property in Arrow Creek in 1946. In November 1948 their first child, a son, James Dennis was born; but passed away with pneumonia on March 3, 1950. Later that year in October, Donna was born. In 1951 Aggie and Don took Donna and moved to Vancouver to live and work. While there, two more girls were born, Hannah in 1954 and Brenda in 1956. In 1959 Aggie and Don returned with the girls to the acreage in Arrow Creek. Aggie worked at the C.V.H. in the kitchen, and later in the laundry.
In her more senior years, she participated in the TAPS program, and also volunteered at New Life Church serving Friday hot lunch to the PCSS students. Aggie moved into Crest View Village in January of 2006, where she resided until being hospitalized (because of pneumonia) for the last week of her life.
Agnes was predeceased by her son Jimmy, her husband Donald in 1992, and her only sibling, Buster Hans in 2007.
Agnes will be lovingly remembered and missed by her three daughters: Donna (Gary) Frostad, Hannah, Brenda (Gordon) Lawrence; four grandchildren: Derek Zarchukoff, Serena Zarchukoff, Jennifer Roth and Tamara Roth; four great-grandchildren: Liam, Alexis, Eli and Levi; as well as nephews and nieces from Donald’s family.
At this time the family would like to thank all those who were a part of Aggie’s life, for their friendship, kindness, and care: her extended family at New Life Church, friends and staff at Crest View Village as well as all the hospital staff. Also we would like to express our gratitude for your kindness expressed through cards, flowers, and care packages. God Bless you all.
