Milton, Ontario
July 11, 2018 – Calgary, Alberta

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Lois Agnew, who died of natural causes on July 11, 2018.

Lois’s dedication as an executive secretary to what is now Petro Canada resulted in her being transferred to Calgary from Toronto in 1983. She created a new home in Calgary with her own garden, which she enjoyed. She also enjoyed baking family birthday cakes and was an active supporter of the Calgary Philharmonic Orchestra. She was involved in many areas of Grace Presbyterian Church especially the Christmas cake baking to raise funds for the church.

Lois lived a full life. She was conscientious, supportive, caring and giving. She enjoyed her family, loved life and nature and celebrated the small things as well as the large ones.

Lois is survived by her nieces Anne Harris of Sault Ste. Marie, Ontario, and Cheryl Harris-Taylor of Toronto, Ontario; and nephew John Harris and his wife Mara Bakic of Toronto, Ontario; as well as her great-nieces and nephews all of Toronto, Ontario; Meagan Taylor, Liam Taylor, Michael Harris, Ben Harris and Emily Harris.

Lois was predeceased by her parents Stanley and Ada (nee Dice) Agnew; sister Marion (nee Agnew) Harris and brother-in-law Charles Harris formerly of Guelph, Ontario; and Cheryl Harris-Taylor’s husband, Paul Taylor formerly of Toronto, Ontario,

A Celebration of Life will be held at Grace Presbyterian Church (1009 – 15th Avenue S.W., Calgary, AB [1]) on Wednesday, August 1, 2018 at 1:00 p.m. Reception to follow at the church.
