Agnes Anna (née Hessdorfer) Stumborg
August 22, 1927 – January 6, 2023

The family of Agnes Stumborg of Humboldt, Saskatchewan is saddened to announce her passing on January 6, 2023, at the age of 95. Agnes Anna (née Hessdorfer) Stumborg was born in Cudworth on August 22, 1927, to John B and Mary (née Kampman) Hessdorfer. She grew up on the family farm south of St. Benedict, attended Rock Valley School near her home, and finished high school through correspondence. Agnes worked at Ebert’s Store in St. Benedict before moving to Saskatoon to complete a secretarial course at Success Business College. Afterwards, she was employed at Robin Hood Flour Mills in Saskatoon for two years and later at SGI in Regina.

Agnes met Alvin Stumborg at a barn dance in Bruno and they were married in the Old St. Benedict Church on October 20, 1952. They raised seven children in a marriage spanning 70 years. They lived and farmed near Naicam until 1962, when they relocated the family to Humboldt and continued to farm until the mid 70’s. Agnes was actively involved in her church community; she served as communion minister and volunteered with the C.W.L. as a long-time member. Agnes and Alvin were Humboldt Broncos season ticket holders. They loved dancing, and enjoyed several trips to Hawaii and a few bus trips to the U.S. Their best times were spent camping and fishing at their favourite Saskatchewan lakes; the more family who joined them, the happier they were. They had a seasonal site at Greenwater Lake for many years. Agnes took up golfing later in life and it became one of her favourite pastimes. She loved her weekly Canasta games with her girlfriends and looked forward to planting her vegetable garden every year. Agnes loved to host family gatherings in her home; there were always several throughout the year and her children are deeply grateful for the memories she made. She dearly loved her grandchildren and great-grandchildren and always remembered their birthdays with a special phone call. She was the Grandma who baked the best homemade buns and prizewinning pumpkin pies. Agnes moved to Caleb Manor in 2018 where she enjoyed Canasta, Bingo, Friday happy hour and Saturday ice cream.

Agnes will be lovingly remembered by four of her seven children and their families: Gwen (Kevin) Stuckel, Renee Stuckel (Trevor), Kristen (Jeff) Kunz, Bailey (Colton), Darcie (Joel), and Leah, Ryan (Jennifer) Stuckel, Konnor, Kayson and Aubrey; Jean (Jim) Roth, Arron and Chad; Cec (Jane) Stumborg; Lambert (Linda) Stumborg, Branden and Logan; Marianne’s boys: Blair (Jennifer) Wourms, Mitch (Michelle) Wourms, Olivia and Bryson; Keith’s boys: David (Stephanie) Stumborg, Emmy, and Colin Stumborg; Arlene’s boys: Merit (Jodi) Meyer, Theo, and Dylan (Brittney) Meyer; sons-in-law Lynn (Pat) Wourms and Gary (Shareen) Meyer, Kaylee; sisters-in-law Theresa Hessdorfer, and Alvin’s sister Julie Gibb. Agnes was predeceased by her husband Alvin just 52 days earlier; daughters Arlene Meyer and Marianne Wourms and son Keith Stumborg; siblings and in-laws: Ambrose Hessdorfer (in childhood), Burnetta (Malcolm) Smith, Everard Hessdorfer and Alvin (Jane) Hessdorfer. The family would like to thank the staff at Humboldt Home Care, Humboldt District Hospital, and St. Mary’s Villa for the excellent care and compassion shown to our mother over the last months.
