Sister Agnès devoted herself to teaching for 35 years, then to catechesis, pastoral care, and volunteering in schools. For a few years, she also worked with deaf mutes after learning sign language. She was highly regarded and much loved by her students as well as parents and the community. She was endowed with a jovial character and lively repartee, which made her a pleasant companion.
Besides her Filles de Jésus Sisters, she is survived by her niece, Sheila Thériault-Law, and a special friend, Karen. She was the last surviving member of her immediate family.
Besides her parents, she was predeceased by her sisters and brothers: Benoit, Thérèse, Élie, Anita, and Normand.
We wish to sincerely thank the staff at Monarch Hall for the great care provided to Sister Agnès.
