AGNES MARY ABRAHAM (published on April 24, 2010)

AGNES MARY ABRAHAM (nee MARTENS) It is with deep sadness our family announces that our mother, Agnes Abraham has gone to her eternal rest, at the age of 91 on April 20, 2010, with her son by her side. Mom was born on December 10, 1918 to Gerhard and Maria Martens and raised in Drake, Saskatchewan. Mom and her husband Bill were married for 40 years, until his passing in 1975. She was also predeceased by her sons, Robert in infancy, Lawrence, and her brothers and sisters. Mom leaves to mourn and cherish her memory her children, Nelson (Lin), Bill Jr. (Doreen), Tom (Doreen), Jerome (Margaret), Cecile (John), Mary Ann and Daniel; her 26 grandchildren, 22 great-grandchildren, four great-great-grandchildren, her sister-in-law Augustine, numerous nieces and nephews. Mom and Dad lived in Saskatchewan until 1950, when they moved their family to St. Francois Xavier. Together they worked and raised their family, hardships were many but their love and commitment to family made them strong. Mom was a loving, caring, hardworking woman committed to providing for her large family. She loved her garden and visits from her children and grandchildren, always finding their visits too short. At 83, mom had a severe stroke leaving her bedridden. We took her home and with the help of home care workers, were able to keep her with us until she was called to her eternal rest. The family would like to extend their sincere appreciation to all her care workers for their kind and wonderful care. Prayers will be held Monday, April 26, 2010 at 10:00 a.m. with Requiem Mass following at 11:00 a.m. at the St. Francois Xavier Roman Catholic Church. Fr. Esaie Blanchette officiant. Interment at the Assumption Cemetery, 4000 Portage Avenue.
