_0009_obit Agatha ToewsAgatha cared for younger siblings, gardened, milked cows and stoked sheaves at threshing time. She accepted Jesus as Saviour at a young age and practised her faith by teaching vacation Bible school and leading children’s music. Agatha attended 2 years of Bible school in Dalmeny, Sask.

Her life’s mission was to daily love and pray for her husband, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren. Agatha worked endlessly at baking, cooking, canning and sewing. She enjoyed her vegetable and flower gardens. Agatha led the ladies aid, volunteered at the thrift store, led Stonecroft Bible studies and sewed blankets for Mennonite Central Committee. She had a passion to help those who were poor or sick. Agatha made many dear friends in Watrous. Her desire was that everyone have the joy she felt from living faith in Jesus.
