Deaths-Agatha-(Dyck)-BullerThe death of Agatha’s father in a farming accident in 1915 and her mother to influenza in 1918 left the family orphaned. At 5, Agatha became part of Cornelius and Anna Enns’ warm home and family in Winkler, Man. After public school, Agatha helped her mother at home, developing skills as a seamstress, baker and cook. At 19, she gave God control of her life and was baptized. She frequently talked of her assurance that Christ was in her life. She was thankful for the opportunity to attend Winkler (Man.) Bible Institute for several winters. Her faith was evident throughout her life. After their wedding, Agatha and William moved to the Buller farm near Ernfold, Sask. They farmed at Flowing Well from 1949 until they left to pastor Meadow Lake (Sask.) MB Church in 1962. In 1972, they moved to Herbert, Sask., living in their own home until poor health forced William into long-term care. Agatha moved to the Herbert Heritage Manor in 2002 and to the Herbert and District Integrated Facility after an injury in 2013. Agatha was a devoted believer, a faithful wife, a loving mother, grandmother and great-grandmother, and a kindhearted friend. She was always interested in her family’s activities and prayed faithfully for them. Hospitable and generous in a quiet way, Agatha made friends of all ages.
