Agnes graduated from Sussex High School in 1939 and married Carl Clinton in 1940. Carl was a career soldier and they lived in many provinces of Canada. When Carl and Agnes retired from the army, they settled in the Okanagan in British Columbia where they lived for over forty years. Agnes and Carl had three children: Carla, LaVerne and Sheryl.

Agnes is also survived by her sister-in-law Ida Neill of Hatfield Point, NB, and many loving nieces and nephews. In addition to her parents, Agnes was predeceased by her loving husband Carl; beloved son Verne; grandson Kenneth; as well as several siblings.
