Agnes Wright (nee Paton) Walcot

Agnes (Scotty to many of her friends) passed away peacefully on January 30, 2016 at the Dr. Andrew Pavilion in Summerland, BC at the age of 80. Agnes was born in Motherwell, Scotland on November 7, 1935. She married and left Scotland to run a farm on the Isle of Man with her husband, Fred, before the family immigrated to Canada in 1975. Prior to residing in Penticton, Agnes and her family lived in Ottawa, Windsor, Kamloops, Golden and Salmon Arm. Agnes was a talented knitter, a voracious reader and loved watching TV, especially British mystery shows. She never completely lost her Scottish accent and strangers always stopped to talk to her just to hear her speak. Agnes was predeceased by her husband Fred. She leaves behind her son Mark, daughters Debra (Scott) Lidster and Suzanne (Ian) Mackinder and her grandchildren Asha, Summer, India, Alexander and Brenna. A Memorial tea will be held from 2:00 p.m. to 4:00 p.m. on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at the Penticton Seniors’ Drop-In Centre at 2965 S. Main Street.
