HYATT, Agnes (nee Graham)

Agnes Hyatt, born in Scotland on November 21, 1928, traveled with her mother and siblings across the ocean to settle in Belleville, Canada. A long time resident of Dunnville for over 50 years, passed away April 19, 2020, peacefully of natural causes.

Agnes is survived by three of her children, Marilyn Hyatt, (husband, John), Dave Hyatt, (wife, Pat) and Lori Plug, ( husband, Mark) as well as her daughter-in-law Brenda Hyatt. She was a proud and loving grandmother for her 8 grandchildren Cheryl Lynn, Chris, Sarah, Aaron, Cassie, Philip, Suzie, and Brooke, as well as a caring great grandmother for her 8 great-grandchildren. Agnes was predeceased by her loving husband Lyle Hyatt and her two sons Tom Hyatt and Stephen Hyatt.

Agnes was a role model for her children as a Mother, a Business Woman and a strong member of the community. She was a Business Manager for the Community Telephone Company and Bell Telephone Company for many years. Upon retirement, she tapped into her entrepreneurial spirit and with friend and business partner Jean, started Dunnville Florist. Even after retiring from the business, she was active in so many ways within the community, at Knox Presbyterian Church, The Eastern Star, and the Dunnville Golf Club to name but a few.

The family was always a focus and she loved having her family come to her home on the Diltz Rd., not only for special occasions but to play games or just visit. In her retirement years she enjoyed her Friday card games and tea with friends, and on nice days getting out for a game of golf, and lunch. She also traveled with family and friends to various destinations in North America and abroad. Agnes spent the last three years at Edgewater Gardens in Dunnville and spoke very highly of the individuals who cared for her. The family would like to extend their sincere thank you to the staff for the wonderful support, and care, they have given to Agnes and the family.

A private family funeral was held at JW Hart Funeral Home. Memorial donations to Heart and Stroke (heartandstroke.ca) or a charity of your choice would be appreciated. Online obituary and condolences at jwhartfuneralhome.com
