Agatha Pelchat of Calgary left us to join her soul mate Don on Saturday, November 26, 2005 after a courageous battle with cancer at the age of 59 years.
Agatha was born in the Netherlands on April 28, 1946. She immigrated to Powell River, BC, moving onto Sardis, BC and settled in Calgary at the age of twenty-one. She had many passions in her life, which included, Inn from the Cold, Parent Patrol, quilting, and curling, as well as being part of the Food Brokerage business for the past thirty years. Agatha was a great contributor to a number of charities through afternoon Bingo and evening Casino adventures. However above all else Agatha loved her family.
