Obituary of Agnes Louise Troop

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Agnes Louise Troop on Friday, January 24, 2020. Agnes passed away peacefully at Mountain Lea Lodge where she resided and received exceptional care, for the past 2 ½ years. Agnes was born February 13, 1934 in Annapolis Royal to the late Charles and Hilda (Smith) Riley. Agnes was a dedicated wife, first and foremost. She treasured her daughters and embraced every moment with them; she especially enjoyed her role as “Nanny”. Agnes had a quiet, quick wit which always seemed to shine through at “just the right time”. In the summer months, she was the neighborhood’s unofficial “lifeguard” taking great pride in teaching many local children how to swim. Her creative side was evident as she designed numerous birthday shirts for family and friends and they were always worn with great pride. Agnes was a proud employee of the Bank of Nova Scotia for 25 years. She maintained a high level of integrity and professionalism which was recognized and appreciated by both customers and co-workers; “Aggie would take care of all your banking needs”! She held many positions within the bank, retiring as a personal loans officer in 1990. In her retirement, Agnes and John enjoyed 30 wonderful years of family, curling and golfing. Agnes is survived by her loving husband of 61 years, John; daughters, Stephanie (Les) and Jacalyn (Kelly); grandchildren Jane (Craig), Kellen, Hailey, great grandchildren Weston and Colton, sisters Isabelle Marshall and Constance Southern, brother-in-law and sister-in-law Ed and Myrna Troop and many nieces and nephews around the globe. Besides her parents, Agnes was predeceased by brother Trueman Riley, sister Margaret Gallant and son-in-law Robert Harvey. The family would like to personally thank Dr Grant Goodine, for his compassion and care throughout the years as well as the many special caregivers at Mountain Lea lodge who so often went above and beyond for our entire family. Cremation has taken place under the care and direction of the Kaulbach Family Funeral Home, Bridgetown. As requested, there will be no visitation. Please join us in a celebration of Agnes’ life, Wednesday, January 29 at 11:00, St James Anglican Church, Bridgetown. Reception to follow at the church hall.
