May 6, 1924-August 6, 2010

In her husband’s loving arms, with family at her side, Agnes passed into Heaven on Friday, August 6, 2010. She was born May 6, 1924 in Vancouver, B.C. to Thomas and Mary Shannon. She grew up in Vancouver with her six brothers and sisters. In April of 1948 she married her handsome American soldier, the love of her life, Glenn Kirkbride. They raised their four children in North Seattle, and retired to Birch Bay where they recently celebrated their 62nd wedding anniversary.

Everyone called her Grandma. She always had cookie dough in the fridge, ready to roll out for family, church, and neighborhood kids alike. With knitting bag at her side, her hands were never idle and her beautiful baby blankets are treasured by several generations.

She leaves her loving family waiting to join her in Heaven one day. Her husband Glenn; children, Heather (Chuck), Neal (Terry), Glenn (Tonya), Barbara (Scott) and Noelle; 9 grandchildren; 8 great-grandchildren plus 2.

A memorial service will be held on Wednesday, August 11, at 2 PM at Good News Fellowship Church, 1252 W. Axton Road in Ferndale. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to Lake Retreat Baptist Camp, 27850 Retreat-Kanaskat Rd. SE, Ravensdale, WA.
