Agnes Ponsford

PONSFORD, Agnes


Aged 75, passed away on 16 February 2010 at 11.45pm. Born in Villingen, Germany on August 12, 1934. It is with heavy hearts we announce the passing of Agnes Ponsford, the cherished matriarch of our family. She leaves behind the light of her life, her husband Stan. Agnes was a mother of three; Yvonne, Norman and Glenn, grandchildren Tanis, Eric, Jason, Brent and Briana and a Great Grandma to Brooke and Sydney. She also leaves behind her beloved sister Elisabeth and her extended family, Aunt Katchen and many cousins in Germany. Agnes married her sweetheart in Buhl, Germany while Stan was in the RCAF. They moved to Canada to start their adventures. They moved around with the military and eventually settled in Comox. They were home! Over the years she was worked in many places, volunteered in others, but the center of her world was her Schatze, her family and the many friends she has cherished over her long life.
