Agatha de Tourdonnet

February 18, 1929 to June 19, 2017

A LIFE WELL LIVED. That is what we can say for Agatha de Tourdonnet (nee Kozeluk) fondly known as Aggie or Mama Bear. She passed away peacefully in Polson Extended on June 18, 2017. She was a character almost until the moment she breathed her last breath. She will be missed dearly by her loving husband Mike de Tourdonnet, her sons Henry and Vincent (Beth), and daughter Renee, brother Alec (Elaine) and family from Edmonton.
When the family moved from Edmonton in 1966 Mom continued her nursing career at Vernon Jubilee Hospital. She was an active member in Planned Parenthood and Hospice. She volunteered with the Garden Club and Allen Brook Nature’s Centre.

Mom and Dad travelled extensively and she had a habit of tucking seeds from all over the world in her suitcase to grow in her amazing garden. The family was always blessed with many wholesome foods that were fruits of her labour.

Mom touched many people’s lives with her quick wit and straightforward manner. The family would like to thank the staff at Polson Extended who treated Aggie as if she were their own.

Please join us in a celebration of life Friday June 23, 2017 at 2:00 PM at the Pleasant Valley Funeral Home 4303 Pleasant Valley Road, Vernon, BC.

Donations can be made in Aggie’s name to the Vernon Hospital Foundation.
