Agnes Bertha Lavina Pickering (Dobie)

June 9, 1920 - December 29, 2014


Long time Granite Road resident Agnes Pickering passed away peacefully December 29, 2014 at Talarico Place in Castlegar, where she resided since September this past year. She was blessed to live 94 happy healthy years.


Agnes was born in Maple Creek, Sask., June 9, 1920.  Her parents were Bertha (Dowkes) and James Dobie.  She grew up on the farm with her three sisters Janet, Ruby and Eva and two brothers Walter and James.  Agnes moved to Nelson when she married her husband Bert and set up residence on Granite Road in Nelson. She lived there until her sudden failing health required her to be admitted to Kootenay Lake Hospital in July of last year. She was a member of the Granite Road Women’s Institute.  In her younger years she enjoyed gardening, embroidery and bowling. She loved to watch television with her cat “Nanny” on her knee. She always looked forward to Thursday night family suppers at son Bruce’s, which have been ongoing since her husband passed away November 1, 1982.


She is survived by her older sister Janet Gregg of Regina, son Bruce  (Vickie) of Beasley, three grand children – Steven from Nelson, Darren (Bobbie) from Castlegar and Laura ( Darren) from Castlegar, and six great grand children – Carter (11), Reid (9), Makayla (9), Sawyer (7), Hayden (5) and Hunter (3),

and many nieces and nephews.
