AGNES, (BOBBY) M. MACKAY

November 14, 1917 – June 15, 2014

Born in North Battleford, Saskatchewan, second youngest of five girls born to William and Caroline Agar. Educated in a one room schoolhouse in Lilac, Saskatchewan. Graduated at 17 and went on to obtain a Nursing degree from Royal Alexandra Hospital in Edmonton, whereafter she was offered a scholarship with the VON. Bobby moved to the Kootenays to nurse in Nelson BC and married Glen in 1948. They built a lovely home together in Bonnington Falls where they lived for 39 years. In 1997 Bobby moved to Summerland to be near family. Bobby and sister Florence travelled to China, Hawaii, Alaska, Mexico, Greece and Turkey. Bobby loved the outdoors – hiking, camping and fishing. She always lent a hand to others. She was a great cook and baked delicious bread, buns and a family favourite, cherry tarts. She took pride in being well informed although she was frustrated with her IPad at times. She loved playing cards and board games with family. Up to the end Bobby did Tai Chi and enjoyed a daily walk by the lake. Predeceased by husband Glen and sisters, Nora, Lena and Mabel. Greatly loved and missed by sister Florence McLachlan and family.
