GREEN, Agnes Mary (nee Muench)
May 27, 1924 to April 2, 2019
Born in Salvador, Saskatchewan, Agnes passed away peacefully at McCormick Home in London, Ontario on April 2, 2019. She is survived by her daughter Terry Lynn (Hugh Fraser) of London, ON; grand-daughter Erin Fraser (Johnston Miller) of Corner Brook, NL; grandson Douglas Fraser (Heidi Hildner) of Etobicoke, ON; and great-grandchildren Rex and Juniper Miller. She was pre-deceased by her husband Alvin, her parents George and Myrtle Muench, her brother Gordon (Elsie), and sister Phyllis (Jerry Clancy).
She and her husband of 67 years, Alvin, created homes in Edmonton, Alberta; Saint John, New Brunswick; and London, Ontario, embracing their communities as their extended family and forging deep and enduring friendships with their neighbours. Agnes’ world revolved around her family; she was a loving wife, adoring and supportive mother, and proud and doting grandmother who met her goal of living long enough to see Erin and Doug successfully and happily making their way in the world. The greatest joy of her recent years was welcoming her great-grandchildren.
Agnes was the quintessential homemaker, a legendary cook and baker, and a talented seamstress with a strong sense of style. She valued her friendships deeply and enjoyed sharing walks, coffee circles, bridge games, and her passion for golf. Her prairie roots shone through in her resilience, self-sufficiency, and tenacity while her sweet, gentle nature and sense of humour belied an uncommon emotional and physical strength.
Agnes’ family is eternally grateful to McCormick Home, which truly was a home to her over the past four years. It is an organization that lives and breathes a culture of respect, compassion and innovation in care. Thanks beyond measure to the staff, particularly those on Evergreen, and to her friends Adrienne, Vicki, and Jane. You enriched her life and allowed her family to sleep at night!
A Celebration of Life will be held on Wednesday, May 1 from 3:30-6:30 pm at the Civic Gardens Complex, 625 Springbank Drive, London.
Memorial donations may be made to the Northcrest Park Endowment Fund (mail to 424 Grosvenor Street, London, ON N5Y 3S4) to make improvements to the Park that is home to the Uplands Canada Day breakfasts or to the McCormick Care Foundation.
