AGNES FAST (WIENS)
Born: Dec 01, 1921
Date of Passing: Dec 18, 2021Send Flowers to the Family Offer Condolences or Memory
December 1, 1921 - December 18, 2021
Agnes is lovingly remembered by many family members: daughter Louise Martens, daughter-in-law Margaret Fast; sons, Frank (Lorraine) and Alvin (Betty); daughter Katherine (Peter) Ferrante; and son Karl (Janet). She will also be remembered by 16 grandchildren, 18 great grandchildren and two great-great-grandchildren.
She was predeceased by her husband Cornelius Fast, son-in-law Ken Martens and son Ron Fast. She is survived by one sister and two brothers.
Agnes had many loves in her life. First and foremost, she loved spending time with her family and always made sure a date for the next visit was confirmed upon leaving. She also had a lifelong passion for flowers and gardening. Her strong faith carried her through many life experiences taking her all the way to age 100 on December 1, 2021. She had no less than seven birthday parties in the past few weeks and made sure she had a chance to visit with each person individually.
In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Agnes' name to charity of choice.
A Celebration of Life will be held by invitation only due to current restrictions. Please visit friendsfs.ca to watch the recorded service available this weekend and to see this obituary.
