It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of our beloved wife, mother, grandmother, and great-grandmother. Agnes passed away peacefully on Saturday, April 26, 2008 in her 86th year.
Agnes was born in Winnipeg, MB and lived there until moving with her family to Turner Valley where she attended high school. She enjoyed sports, and was particularly fond of curling, golf and water skiing. Agnes was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion Ladies Auxiliary and traveled extensively around the world while supporting her husband Ed in his responsibilities and duties as Dominion President of the Royal Canadian Legion. She touched the lives of all who knew her, and will always be remembered for her love of life and family.
Agnes is survived by her loving husband of thirty-six years Ed; son Gordon MacCalder (Brenda); daughter Donna Balcers (John); step-daughter Sandra Magee (Lawrence); step-daughter Sharron White (John); step-son Donald (Patricia); grandchildren, David, Scott, Jay, Adene, Ross, Carmen, Tara, Marni, and Ryan; great-grandchildren Jake, Olivia, Erica, Nolan, Mitchel, Makayla, and Katrina.
