On Saturday morning, October 23, 2010 our Heavenly Father called Agatha to her eternal home in heaven.

Agatha was born on November 11, 1942 in Chortitz, Manitoba to Jacob C. & Agatha Wall. Agatha was the second born of 4 children. She grew up in Chortitz and attended the Old Colony Church. She was baptized on June 10, 1962 in the Winkler Bergthaler Mennonite Church by Rev. J.E. Pauls. On June 9, 1963 she married John B. Thiessen of Reinfeld, Manitoba by Rev. J.E. Stobbe. They purchased a house in Reinfeld and this is where they started their life together. In 1968 they were blessed with 1 son, Kevin. Agatha started work at the Sewing Factory in Morden in 1959 and then moved over to the Winkler Sewing Factory and worked there for 10 years until she was diagnosed with Rheumatoid Arthritis, which was the beginning of many serious health issues which prevented her from any further work outside the home. In 1967 they moved to a small country property 1 mile east of Schanzenfeld where they resided until 1987 when they moved to Winnipeg. They lived in Winnipeg for 10 years and moved back to Winkler in 1997. On February 10, 2010 Agatha was admitted to the St. Boniface Hospital. During the course of the year she has spent the majority of her time in 4 different hospitals. On October 3, 2010 she was admitted to Boundary Trails Health Centre where she spent the rest of her days until her passing. 

She was predeceased by her parents Jacob & Agatha Wall and 1 brother Jake Wall. Left to cherish her memory are her husband John Thiessen, 1 son Kevin & Wanda Thiessen and 3 grandchildren Brooke, Cole & Nikki. She is also survived by sister-in-law Kathy Wall & family, sister Joanna & John Penner & family, and brother Cornie & Mary Wall & family. 

A scripture verse that describes her life is

2 Timothy 4:7: I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith.
