Cherry AgnesCHERRY, Agnes Faye (Nee McCorkindale)  -  From her residence at Eden House, Eden Mills, Faye passed away suddenly from heart failure, en route to the Guelph General Hospital on Wednesday morning, March 1, 2017 in her 78th year.

She was the beloved mother of Bernadette Wells (the late Craig Pemberton, d.2014) and Jason Wells   (Amanda). Cherished grandmother of Marshall, Joshua, Sam and Max. 

Dearest sister of Bob (Erin), Neil (Valerie), Bill (Linda) and Jim (Linda) McCorkindale.

Predeceased by her parents, Dr. W.C.'Bill' and Agnes McCorkindale. Faye’s father was from the Willow Road farm 'Fountainhead' and her mother was a coal miner’s daughter from Larkhall (near Glasgow), Scotland. 

Faye out-lived two husbands, Edward Wells (d.1986) (father of her children) and Ronald W. Cherry (d.2004). 

She will be greatly missed by many nieces, nephews, and cousins in Canada and Australia.        

Faye was the first survivor of pioneer surgery at Toronto SickKids Hospital in 1940, for the most severe form of Spina Bifida. The operation was successfully performed and attended by a team of        surgeons from Canada and U.S.A. At the time, Faye was called a 'miracle baby' and not expected to live beyond 6 years. Faye was truly a remarkable, special lady with an indomitable spirit and a wonderful sense of humour and was much loved by many.

Friends may call at Gilchrist Chapel - McIntyre & Wilkie funeral home, Guelph, on Sunday, March 5, 2017, from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. with funeral service following in the funeral home chapel at 3:00 p.m. Cremation will take place at a later time. 

Memorial contributions to SickKids Hospital or Spina Bifida and Hydrocephalus Association of Canada would be appreciated.
