Obituary for Agnes Diana Tanner

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Agnes Diana Tanner, 83, of Lunenburg and formerly of Stonehurst, on Thursday, December 13, 2018 at South Shore Regional Hospital, Bridgewater.

Born in Stonehurst, Agnes was the daughter of the late King and Maisie (Knickle) Tanner.

Agnes was a proud wife of a fisherman and homemaker. She loved to spend her time taking care of her family and spending time tending to her gardens. When she was able, she also enjoyed selling her knitted doll clothes and flower arrangements at flea markets in the area. Agnes was a great lover of dogs, and most recently Lily and Crystal were the benefactors of her love.

Agnes is survived by her daughter, Jaunita (Leonard) Rodenhiser, Dayspring; sisters, Joyce (Ray Wile) Tanner, Wileville; Bonnie Ann (Avery) Milton, Middlewood; Wendy (Joel) Tanner, Stonehurst; brother, Lewis (Shirley) Tanner, Dayspring; grandchildren Andrew, Evan and Hailey.

She was predeceased by her husband William; brother Barry Tanner and sister Bertha McNeil.
