DAVID, Agnes Viola

December 15, 1917 - July 23, 2014

It is with deep sadness that we announce that Agnes Viola David passed away peacefully on July 23, 2014 at the Drumheller Continuing Care surrounded by her family. She was a deeply loved mother, grandmother, great-grandmother and friend to many.  She is survived by her daughters, Janice (Richard) Wheeler, Beverley (Hector) Daignault, grandchildren, Allan (Sheree), Robert, Byron (Jenna), Robin (Heather), Rhonda (Darin) and Rhianna (Robert), 9 great-grandchildren, 1 great-great-grandson, and numerous nieces, nephews and their families.  Agnes was predeceased by her beloved husband, L.J. David in 1985, her parents, 5 brothers, 2 sisters, and 1 grandson. Agnes lived a long, satisfying life, serving her God, Jehovah (Psa.83:18) along side her husband L.J.  After their daughters were married, they made many life-long friends across Canada as travelling ministers of Jehovah’s Witnesses and spent over  20 years in this Volunteer Bible education work.  She loved spending time with her family, reading and studying the Bible, and as a result her firm hope for the future was to be reunited with her loved ones in a resurrection to life back here on a peaceful, paradise earth that the Bible promises. (Psa. 37:10, 11, 29). A Memorial Service will be held Saturday, August 9, 2014 at 2:00 p.m. at the Kingdom Hall of Jehovah’s Witness in Drumheller (Midland).  If you would like to learn more about Agnes’ hope and faith, please go to jw.org. Our family would like to thank, from the bottom of our hearts, the nurses and care-givers in Continuing Care for the care and love shown to our dear mother, grandmother and great grandmother. Courtney-Winters Funeral Home are in care of the arrangements.
