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.
