elevated ypuyV Agnes was an ordinary person with extraordinary traits: honest to a fault, extremely conscientious of others’ needs and always walked the extra mile. These qualities earned her an award, “Best of the Best Top Individuals” in 2005 and 2008 at Scotiabank, where she worked for numerous years. All her customers loved her and some even became her good friends after she retired. Another highlight of her career was in 1998 when she was chosen to be the poster girl in a Scotiabank brochure.

elevated ypuyV Agnes was a globe-trotter and left her footprint in almost every continent. She travelled extensively with her siblings, Sam, and her friends in the last 15 years. She not only enjoyed the scenery and good food during her travels, but also treasured the company and connections she made with everyone.

elevated ypuyV In recent years, Agnes became an active member of her church, serving as lector or simply helping out, however, it was not the only place that Agnes donated her time. In addition to caring for her senior-but-not-senile mom, she also spent time with her godfather, William, who was lonely and wheelchair-bound in his senior years. To cheer him up, Agnes took William to coffee shops, accompanied him to the doctor’s office, and even overseas trips. For Agnes, charity began at home, but did not stop there.

Agnes lived a happy and fulfilling life. As the second youngest among her siblings, she was treasured by her brothers and sisters. During the last two years, Agnes courageously battled liver cancer where she was surrounded by her family and good friends. She now rests in peace with her first love, Chiu, where her adult life journey began. May she enjoy her next and everlasting life in God’s grace. Amen.
