Agnes Greene

August 19, 1929 to January 19, 2018

Obituary

Mrs. Agnes Greene (née Whelan) passed peacefully away in the presence of her loving family on January 19, 2018, aged 88 years. Aggie was predeceased by her husband Rupert Greene, her parents Captain John and Marcella Whelan, and her brothers Dr. Patrick Whelan and Fr. John Whelan, S.J.

Leaving to mourn Aggie are her loving family: daughter Marcy (David Feder) and son Gerry (Marilyn); grandchildren Gerard (Laura) and Paddy (Alexa); siblings Mary (Carmen Rockwell, deceased), George Whelan (Gloria), Dr. Ron Whelan (Betty Lou) and sister-in-law Marie Whelan. Aggie had a great many nieces, nephews and cousins who will always remember her laughter and delight in life.

Aggie was kind and generous in her well-lived life. She cherished her 70-year friendship with her club and bridge ladies and the fellowship of her special neighbors on Shea Street. She was a woman of grace, generosity and deep faith who volunteered with St. Patrick’s Mercy Home, St. Clare’s Mercy Hospital and the Palliative Care Unit. She was devoted to the Darjeeling Mission in India, which her brother administered as a Jesuit priest. All who knew Aggie loved her deeply for her kind spirit as well as her love of music and parties; we will treasure our many happy memories of her.

Special thanks for the professional care, kindness and support provided by staff of the Agnes Pratt Home and also of Cambridge Estates. Visitation will be at Carnell’s Funeral Home, Freshwater Road on Sunday, January 21 from 2-4 & 7-9 p.m. A Mass of Christian Burial will take place at St. Pius X Church on Monday, January 22 at 9:30 a.m. with an interment to follow at Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, Topsail Road.

In lieu of flowers, donations in Agnes Greene’s memory may be made to St. Pius X Church, Smithville Crescent or to The Agnes Pratt Home Foundation, Topsail Road.

So sorry to hear of your loss, Marcy. Your mother was such a spirited lady.

Marcy,
On this Valentine’s Day, Ash Wednesday, 2018,
I am thinking of you.
I’m sad to hear about the loss of your mom.
My memories of your Mom make me smile,
as she continually did herself…..
from St. Patrick’s Mercy Home to
St. Pius X Auxiliary to
Ladies Tea …not to mention
St. Pius X Choir, St. Pius X Church and
sleep overs .(memories of Dad )
ALWAYS smiling with her quick wit.
Like mother like daughter.
Squeezes to you and Gerry both,

Peace
Mairin O’Leary Hitsman

Marcie and Gerry. So sorry to hear of your moms passing. She was such a kind and loving lady. Loved visiting your parents on shea st

Marilyn, Gerry and family, I am so sorry to hear about the passing of Aggie. Although I have never met Aggie I have heard so many wonderful things about her over the years working with Marilyn, she sure sounds like a very special and wonderful person. Losing a loved on is never easy but take comfort in knowing the are gone home and watching over you all here on earth each and every day until the day comes you will all be reunited again. A mother will never leave her child, although they may be different places sometimes.

An Angel whispered
take my hand and
come with me
your work here is done.

I went away to a place
where there’s no tears, nor sorrow
only laughter and smiles,
there will always be a Tomorrow.

As I move amongst the clouds.
I’ll look down and smile upon you,
while the angels
sing a heavenly song.

I am not alone
all who went before
are here
they awaited my return.

I know you’ll grieve
and wish I was still here
I am here in the memories
you hold dear.

Remember how much I
love you
and know I took your
love with me.

I did not wish for
you to cry, nor feel sad.
My pain is gone and
I am Free!

Soon you’ll come to me
until then
God will be with you
Just as He’s with me.

Marcy and Gerry,

I was very saddened to hear of the loss of your wonderful mother Aggie. I have so many fond memories of both her and Rupert at your house as well as the Power’s caroling parties. She was an absolutely wonderful woman and mother and we are all richer for having known her. Take comfort that she is in a better place now with Rupert.

Sending you condolences and hugs from Ottawa.

Dear Marcy,
My sincere condolences to you and your family. Your mom was a beautiful lady with such a kind and caring manner. I’ll always remember my visits to your home in our “younger” years.

Gerry, Marcy, and Family,

I was saddened to hear about Mrs. Greene’s passing. She was a wonderful, generous, and loving person. All my visits to Shea St. with Gerry were always enjoyable and I was always treated with warmth and kindness. Mrs. Greene always made me feel like one of the family and it was a honour to know her.
Gerry and Marcy you were blessed to have had such a wonderful mother. She was a living angel because she always gave of herself to others. Agnes is with Rupert now and she will continue to watch over you guys from afar.
God Bless you Mrs. Greene you lived your life to the fullest and for others!

I have fond memories of your mother at our home as she played bridge often with my mother, Nellie Cahill, who passed away in 1990. How those ladies enjoyed the game! Perhaps they are playing together again. Please accept my deepest condolences for your loss.

Marcy, Gerry and your families. I am very sorry to hear that your dear mother has passed. I have such lovely memories of her at my Mom’s house for Darjeeling (bridge club) and of course going to her house as a child. Anyone who knew Aggie loved her for her kind, loving manner. She was truly a gentle woman and a very sweet soul. I am so glad I got to visit with her a few years ago when I was home. My deepest sympathy.

Marcy, David and family. My sincere condolences on the passing of your mother (mother-in-law). My thoughts and prayers are with you.

Agnes was a beautiful lady. I worked with her in Palliative Care at St. Clare’s in the ‘90’s. She was always so positive and upbeat, so kind to everyone.

Agnes spoke so kindly of her family. I m sure you have many cherished memories.

Well done Agnes, spreading God s love.

Marcy, Gerry and families,
So sorry for the loss of your mother. Agnes was indeed a beautiful soul who spread love and joy wherever she went. Regardless of age or circumstance the loss of someone you love deeply is very difficult.
Bill and I are away for the winter but always know that our thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Take care of yourself and each other.
Love Brenda and Bill
