Agnes worked at Golden Acres Turkey Farm, and later retired in 2002 from Oberlin Processing. She was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church. Agnes had a passion for staying in close touch with her family and friends. Her relationships with all of her grandchildren and great-grandchildren were priceless to her. She was always there to lend an ear and give sound advice if asked. She was a mother figure to not only her children but to many other family members as well. Her wisdom and sound advice will be missed by all.
Agnes had a keen sense of humor and always made people smile and laugh. You knew she was in the room.
