Agatha became a Christian at evangelistic services at 10. She attended Bethany Bible Institute, Hepburn, Sask. Agatha worked at Regina General Hospital, where she trained as an LPN. She then joined MCC and moved to Ontario, working at Gravenhurst Hospital, doing a 3-month stint in New York, and then at Bethesda in Vineland. Agatha met John in Ontario when he was working on a farm for MCC. They farmed north of Hodgeville, Sask., 38 years before retiring in 1995 and moving to Herbert. Agatha was a hard worker and farming partner with John. She had a big garden and loved to grow flowers. She also had a big heart, often giving garden produce and baking to neighbours and those in need. Her gifts of hospitality and service touched many. Her teasing extended to those who married into the family. Agatha served in the church kitchen, Sunday school and vacation Bible school. When John’s health failed, she was his devoted sole caregiver until his death. In the years following, she began to go out again, making trips to B.C. and Winnipeg. She hosted her last Bible study just days before entering the hospital.
