TEBIN, Agnes Agathe

December 9, 1924 – Weilke Pole, Poland
November 30, 2014 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of our dear mother Agnes (Aggie) on Sunday, November 30, 2014.

Agnes came to Canada in 1948, where she resided with her Uncle, Louis Krenz and family in Chauvin, Alberta. While there, she worked in Daysland, Killam, and Wainwright, Alberta. From there she went up north to Port Radium where she was known as the “Sandwich Queen” making sandwiches for the miners. Aggie and Ziggy raised their family in Calgary and Agnes went to work for the University of Calgary in the library as a cataloguer and interpreter.

Agnes is survived by her three children, Ken (Gail) Tebin, Mary-Jane (Bernd) Adametz, and Carmen (Barry) Kirshenblatt; and her six grandchildren, Brent, Sandra, Tyler, Scott, Max and Sam. She is also survived by her sister Freidel Buhrke; brother-in-law Rudi Tietzmann; sister-in-law Xenia Krenz; and godson Harold Krenz. Agnes will be missed by her nieces and nephews in Calgary, Vancouver, Germany, and the USA.

Agnes was predeceased by her husband of forty-eight years, Zygmunt (Ziggy) on July 10, 2003.

A Private Family Service for Agnes will be held. Mom will be laid to rest in Queen’s Park Cemetery with her late husband Ziggy. Condolences may be forwarded through www.mcinnisandholloway.com. In lieu of flowers, memorial tributes may be made directly to The Alzheimer Society of Alberta and the Northwest Territories, Administrative Office, 10531 Kingsway Avenue, Edmonton AB T5H 4K1.

In living memory of Agnes Tebin, a tree will be planted at Fish Creek Provincial Park by McINNIS & HOLLOWAY FUNERAL HOMES, Chapel of the Bells, 2720 CENTRE STREET NORTH, Telephone: 403-276-2296.

    I am very sorry for your loss of your mom and grandma. Take comfort in knowing she is at peace and has been reunited with your dad. I know it has been very hard for you over the last few years to watch her dissappear from your life, remember all the good times you had and that will help you heal. If you need anything let me know. Take care of yourselves and each other.

    Condolences on the passing of your mother and my thoughts are with you at this time. Many
    times as I look across the street to the house expect to see her or Ziggy looking at the garden.
    I still miss seeing them and they are likely tending a garden elsewhere.
    Sincerely
    Lilie Collins and family

    To the Tebin Family,
    We offer our sincere sympathy on the loss of your dear Mother. Aggie and Ziggy were our dear friends and next-door neighbours for many years on 22A. We have many happy memories. Joan Ferguson (Jo-Anne, Ken and Garry)
    We are delayed offering you condolences as Mom moved to Ottawa a year ago (where Jo-Anne lives) and we lost track of Calgary news.
