FERGUSON, Agnes Ann (nee SMYTH)
Went to be with her Lord and her loving husband David early in the morning of November 15, 2005 after a lengthy illness. Mom will be forever missed by her fourteen children Terry Ann (John) Criscione, Larry (Peggy) Ferguson, Geraldine (Rick) Oldham, Barry (Betty) Ferguson, Diane (David) Mitchelson, Don (Mary Anne) Ferguson, Arlene (John) Higgins, Joyce (Alan) Broome, Mark Ferguson, Dale (Jonathan) Russell, Frank (Sharon) Ferguson, Scott (Lia) Ferguson, Jannine (Joe Bowen) Ferguson, Shelley (Dave Bell) Ferguson. She is loved by her sister Nancy Enright and brothers Terry and Kevin Smyth. She is united with her sister Eileen Carnegie and brothers Frank and Stan Smyth who predeceased her. Mom was blessed with her grandchildren Vince (Karin), Jill, Charlene, Nicole (Glenn), Patrick, Krista (Craig), Karl, Kyle, Bob (Tonia), Kevin (Lisa), Sarah, Kathleen, Joseph, Jonathan, Jason (Terrie), Becky, Kyle (Kendra), Lindsay, Derek, Craig, Mark, Julia, Casey, Allana, Danielle, Sophia, Bianca, David and great- grandchildren Abby, Brooklyn, Evan and Ky. She also leaves behind many sisters-in-law and brothers-in-law. Mom was born in England on August 5, 1927 and at the age of three moved to Canada with her family, where she later met her husband David. Raising fourteen children in tough times was a full time job, however, this exceptional mother always worked late at night at a ''real'' job for extra income to help support her family. Many will remember her little car up and down the concessions as a rural route mail lady. For many years Mom was a lifetime member of the Royal Canadian Legion where she volunteered her time and efforts. Mom loved her bingo, her bowling and her golf. In retirement she enjoyed wintering in Panama City and Phoenix where she was a true sun worshipper. If wealth were measured by family and friends, Mom had riches beyond compare. Our family would like to thank the staff, physicians and nurses at The Wynfield in Oshawa and Markham Stouffville Hospital for their wonderful care. Funeral Mass on Friday, November 18, 2005 at 11:30 a.m. at Sacred Heart Catholic Church, Uxbridge. In Mom's memory, donations may be made to the Royal Canadian Legion or the Canadian Cancer Society.
