Agnes was a long-time resident of Sarnia having emigrated to Canada from The Netherlands by way of England where she was fostered while waiting for her family to be able to leave Holland after WWII.

She also found time to begin a successful career selling real estate in the Sarnia Area. She will be missed by all those who knew and loved her.
