Agnes Theresa (Roles) McMaster, 84, of Chinook, Montana, went to be with the Lord on Feb. 15, 2016.

Agnes was born on Sept. 23, 1931, in Glenburn, North Dakota, to John and Anna Roles. She graduated high school in Towner, North Dakota, and shortly afterward she met the love of her life, John McMaster. She and John married on Aug. 23, 1950, in North Dakota and then moved to Havre, Montana, in 1954. They settled in Chinook in 1958 where they raised their 10 children.

Throughout Agnes' long, happy life, her hobbies included cooking and teaching her grandchildren how to cook, gardening, canning, jigsaw puzzles and reading. But the absolute joy of her life was spending time with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren. And hosting Sunday family dinners at her home was a special time for her.

Agnes had a heart of gold. She weathered loss and heartache, dried our tears and supported each of us throughout our lives. She raised her 10 children, and then still had enough love left over for each and every grandchild and great-grandchild. If the old saying "Agnes is never truly dead until no one thinks of her anymore" is true, she will live forever in our hearts.

Agnes is survived by her four daughters, Judy (Russ) Rhinehart of Billings, Pauly (Perry) Miller of Chinook, Marge (Greg) Cosmutto of Winneconne, Wisconsin, and Susan (Dave) Armstrong of Havre; four sons, Ed (Thelma) McMaster, Merle McMaster, Dave (Brenda) McMaster and Mike (Ronda) McMaster, all of Chinook; 39 grandchildren and 45 great-grandchildren; three sisters, Alice Hiar, and Theresa Holloway, both from California, and Mary Ann Halbridge of Texas; her sister-in-law Isabel Bozeman of Fort Shaw, Montana; and numerous nieces, nephews, and cousins.

She was preceded in death by her husband, John; two sons, Bill and Pat; and six brothers, Edward, Jim, Tony, Lou, George and Elgar.

A vigil will be on Sunday, Feb. 21, at 7 p.m.. Funeral services will be held Monday, Feb. 22, at 11 a.m ., both at St. Gabriel's Catholic Church, and a burial will take place after the services at Kuper Memorial Cemetery, all in Chinook. Donations can be made to the American Heart Association, the Spina Bifida Association and St. Gabriel's Catholic Church.

Holland & Bonine Funeral Home has been entrusted with services and arrangements.
