Obituary

Agnes was born May 16, 1922, at the family farm near Annaheim Sask., to Mary (nee Raskob) and Michael Kunz. She obtained her schooling at Harvest Country School near Annaheim. After her school years she worked at various jobs, and eventually started working at the St. Gregor Co-op, where she met her future husband Michael Binsfeld. On January 16, 1945, Agnes and Michael were married and the couple resided on the Binsfeld family farm south of St. Gregor. Their lives were blessed by their eight children and life on the farm included the hard work necessary to raise horses and livestock, a large garden and a busy, growing family. Life at that time required a great deal of strength and energy and it was not always easy. Agnes had a very full life raising her family. Sewing, cooking, knitting, and crocheting were all valuable skills and talents at which Agnes excelled. In 1965, the decision was made to sell the farm and the farmhouse was moved to Watson, where Agnes started working at the Watson Co-op. After 17 years working there as a cashier, she took an early retirement to enjoy spending her time with Mike. After his passing in October 1985, she stayed in Watson and later moved to the Senior Complex in Watson. Agnes was very fond of passing the time over the years playing bingo, going bowling, playing cards, and curling, and she was an active member of the CWL at Sacred Heart R.C. Church in Watson. In March of 2014, due to failing health, Agnes moved to the Quill Plains Centennial Lodge, where she remained until her death. She will be lovingly remembered and sadly missed by her family.
