Mary Agnes (nee Lancaster) SHOGREN

Mary Agnes (nee Lancaster) passed away peacefully on July 9, 2006 in her 102nd year. She was predeceased by husband Harry, son Donald, ­sisters Rachel Lancaster, Nellie Wescott, Emma Olson and brothers Richard, William, Thomas and Bert Lancaster. Agnes is lovingly remembered by son Douglas (Tina) and daughter Joan (Gordon) Moffat, ten grand­children, fifteen great grand­children and one great great grandchild. She is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews. As a young child, Agnes moved from Manitoba with her parents, to homestead on Matsqui Prairie. She began her teaching career in 1923 and taught at schools in Ridgedale, North Poplar, Gifford and Clayburn. In 1931 Agnes married Harry Shogren and for years resided on their Bakerview Farm at Gifford. It was here that Agnes became an avid gardener, a passion that continued throughout the rest of her life.

The family would like to thank the staff at the Menno Home for their kindness and support during the years she was in residence.

A private family service will be held.
