WEDEL, Agatha (Braul)
Agatha was born in Melitopol, Russia on August 26, 1925 and passed away on Feb. 5Th, 2012 to be with her heavenly Father and join her late husband Abe.
Agatha emigrated to Canada with her family in 1925, residing in Beaverlodge, Alberta.
Agatha is survived, greatly missed and fondly remembered by her loving family; son Victor (Debbie) Wedel and daughter Lorilee (Robert) Down and grandchildren Laura (Ken) Poustie, Kristen (Carter) Stotz, Michael Wedel and great grandson Cameron Patrick Poustie. “Gaty” will also be fondly remembered by her remaining brother Henry (Mary) Braul and Abe’s sisters Kay, Hilda, Selma (John), Marie (Ron) and Anne and many nieces and nephews, including her special niece and favourite Scrabble partner Eleanor Kasdorf.
Agatha was a long-time member of the Black Creek United Mennonite Church where she enjoyed many years of friendship, shared faith and quilting with her Harmony Hearts gals. She was a wonderful, loving and kind wife, Mom and Grandmother who will be dearly missed and fondly remembered. Agatha was a teacher at elementary schools in Vancouver, Vanderhoof and locally in the Comox Valley and very much enjoyed passing on the love of learning (especially reading) to young children.
The family would like to thank our special neighbours, friends, Pastor Gordon Carter and Church Family from Black Creek United Mennonite for their friendship and kindness. We would also like to thank the caring staff, friends and neighbours from Casa Loma which became “home” to Mom and Dad over the last six years. Thank you to Dr. Janet Green and more recently Dr. Dan for the kind and compassionate care you shared with Mom and our family during this difficult time
A memorial service will be held to honour Agatha’s life at Black Creek United Mennonite Church (Enns Road) on Friday, Feb. 10th at 2:00P.M. Interment to be held at Black Creek Cemetery at a later date.
If desired, the family would greatly appreciate donations to MCC B.C. Box 2038 – 31414 Marshall Road, Abbotsford, BC, V2T 3T8 or Black Creek United Mennonite Church.
