Ryan (née Houlihan ), Agnes Anne
3/5/38 – 16/5/20.
Formerly of Grasmere, Western Victoria. Died peacefully at St John of God Hospital Ballarat. Loving wife of Gavan (dec); mother and mother-in-law of Adele; Paul and Jo, Bill and Anita; Mary and Stuart; Christine and Adrian. Devoted grandmother of Rachael, Emily and Sarah; Ailish and Maeve; Leo, Stella and Sylvie; Lochie and Casey.
Always in our thoughts.
Privately interred at Ballarat.
Agnes was a great friend and supporter of Lambley Nursery and Gardens at Ballarat in recent years and I enjoyed some wonderful chats on the phone, even extending to a few horse racing tips in one of our last calls. We also had in common an association with St Mary’s in Hamilton and St Ann’s in Warrnambool (after a fashion) which was a wonderful link to a long time ago in the case of the former. Sorely missed but clearly a life well-lived!November 10, 2020
Dear Christine and the Ryan family.May 27, 2020
I am thinking of you all. Agnes was a beautiful lady and a respected and caring teacher at St. Ann’s.
Whenever I ran into Agnes after the girls left school, she always asked after them.
A lovely lady now at peace.May 25, 2020
Many fond memories shared between our families over many years.
