Agnes Peters.jpgOn Sunday June 22, 2003, at Boundary Trails Health Centre, R.M. Of Stanley, Aganetha "Agnes" Peters (nee Born) age 89 years of Winkler, formerly of Gnadenthal, went to her eternal rest.

Mom was a ray of sunshine for all whose paths she crossed. She accepted everyone with love and kindness. Her intellect far exceeded her education and she was a worthy Scrabble opponent to one and all. She had a sense of humour like no other. She could find something to laugh at no matter what the circumstances and this attribute served her well right up to the end. Mom lived her life with dignity and grace and will never know how much influence she had over each and everyone of us. Mom, we will miss you more than you could ever know and your impact on our lives will live forever.

Mom was predeceased by her beloved husband Johann Peters (1989); her parents Heinrich and Anna (Krahn) Born, 4 brothers and 2 sisters.
