Orville William Agrey
May 2, 1934-August 1, 2022
It is with great sadness that the family of Orville Agrey announces his passing on August 1, 2022 at Parkland Integrated Health Centre, Shellbrook, at the age of 88.
Orville was born on May 2, 1934 in Prince Albert and grew up on the farm in Parkside. He married Norma Olson of Ordale on Oct 4, 1958 and together they farmed and raised a family on the land where Orville grew up. Orville and Norma moved to Parkside in August of 2007.
Orville was involved in the Parkside Immanuel Lutheran Church and sang in the choir until March of this year. He enjoyed walking and riding his bike in the summer and curling with the Shellbrook Seniors Curling Club in the winter. He was able to ride his bike until last fall and curled until March of this year. Orville loved music, family, and friends, and in his later years, cooking, baking, and gardening. Orville will be remembered as kind and caring, with a loving and giving personality and a strong faith.
Orville will be missed beyond measure by those who survive him: son Ray and his wife, Shirley, and their children, Amanda (Jeff Rewerts); Stephanie (Kris Olsen); Tyler LeBlanc (Kat); and Chad LeBlanc (Caitlin); daughter Cindy and her husband, Norman Painchaud, and their children, Renae Painchaud and Michael Painchaud; and daughter Cathy and her husband, Rod Marchessault, and their children, Beckie (James Gyorfi) and Jason Marchessault (Makayla).

Orville greatly missed the family that went before him: the love of his life, Norma, his beloved mother, father and stepmother, his brothers, sisters, brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Norma’s parents, other family members, and many friends.
