June 22, 1946 - April 15, 2020

It is with heavy hearts that we announce the passing of Agnes (Nettie) Turko. She passed away peacefully, with her family at her side, after a courageous fight with Multiple Sclerosis (MS).
She will be sadly missed by her husband, Amel; children, Jarrett and Curtis (Ashley); grandchildren, Benjamin, Peyton, Jameson and Olivia; as well as her brother, Dave (Fran); and many cherished nephews, nieces, cousins and friends. She was predeceased by her sisters, Anne and Barbara.
Agnes met her future husband, Amel, while teaching in Alonsa, MB. Amel and Agnes were married for 52 years. Once her children were born, she dedicated her time to raising her family. She was actively involved in supporting sons in sports like soccer, baseball, bowling, basketball, enjoying family time playing crokinole and cribbage. Agnes enjoyed visiting her extended family from the West Coast to Ontario, and dedicated her spare time to the church. She enjoyed listening to music, puzzles, watching hockey, CFL and game shows. Agnes cherished every visit from her children and her grandchildren, and was always buying little gifts for them.
Agnes' faith and love of her family while battling MS were instrumental in her earning the title of "strongest person I know".
The family would like to say a heartfelt thank you to all the homecare staff, for all the wonderful years of care and friendship. Agnes and the Turko family are truly appreciative.
Due to the current health crisis, a future memorial service will be held at a later date.
In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the MS Society of Canada.
