Agnes Maria Czajkowski, 92, of Surrey, BC, passed away peacefully on January 10, 2018.
Born May 6, 1925 in Hindenburg, Germany, she is predeceased by her parents Richard and Marta (Schneider) Tomscha and her brother Arthur Tomscha.
Agnes married the late Jan Czajkowski in 1948 (Poland). They immigrated to Winnipeg, Manitoba in 1951.
They had 2 children, their surviving daughter Christa Sharpe (Gordon) and their late son Peter Czajkowski. When they decided to retire in 1985 they purchased a hobby farm on Leach Road in Dryden, Ontario. There, with their late son Peter, they built up the farm, raised livestock and had an abundant vegetable garden. They had great neighbors and made many friends.
Agnes moved to Surrey, BC in 2011 to live with her daughter Christa.
Our mother and grandmother was a great cook and loved to entertain. She was an avid vegetable gardener where she would harvest her vegetables and sell them at the local farmers market each year. She also loved to go fishing, the outdoors foraging for wild blueberries and mushrooms and playing card games.
Also surviving are her grandchildren, Debbie Cooper (Boon), Dylan Boon, Jhan and Jhustin Ancheta-Czajkowski their mother Myrna Ancheta, great-grandchildren Dalton Boon, Haydin Boon, Tiesha Cooper and Soraya Ancheta-Czajkowski. She also leaves behind many loving relatives and friends.
