In Memoriam: Agnes Macgregor Mitchell (Freebairn)

Agnes Macgregor Mitchell (Freebairn)

1917 – 2015

Our beloved mother passed away peacefully at her home in Vista Village, Pincher Creek, with family by her side on April 4, 2015.

She was predeceased by her parents (Scotty and Laura Freebairn), her four siblings, and by her loving husband of 66 years Dr. Lorne Mitchell in 2009.

Agnes is survived by her eight children; Robert (Maureen), John (Dana), Joan (Wulf), Mary (Walter), Gordon (Lola), Lorna (Ken), Phil (Bette), and Carol as well as 20 grandchildren and 20 great grandchildren.

Agnes was born and raised in Pincher Creek. She graduated as an RN at the Calgary General Hospital. In 1943, she met and married dad when they were both in the armed services, and they settled in Calgary. By 1955 when mother had five children, they purchased a ranch north of Pincher Creek, a life-changing event. For the next 34 years the family split their time between Calgary and Pincher Creek. In 1989, mother and dad retired to the ranch and lived there for 15 years until they moved to Vista Village where they received exceptional and caring assistance by all of the staff.

Mother’s warm, caring and positive spirit, as well as her lovely dry wit will always be treasured.

A memorial service will be held at 2:00 P.M. on Thursday April 9, 2015 at the PINCHER CREEK UNITED CHURCH. 972 Police Ave, Pincher Creek, Alberta.

In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Good Samaritans Society Vista Village, P.O. Box 1510, Pincher Creek, AB T0K 1W0, or a charity of choice.

Funeral arrangements entrusted to Eden’s Funeral Home (403) 627-3131
