Agnes was a very hard working and loving person who never met a stranger. She would give her last dollar to anyone who needed it and never complained. She loved spending time with her family and friends, and was always a wonderful cook. Her wonderful meals were always something to look forward to on the holidays. Her home was always full of laughter and stories to listen to of her time spent growing up with her large family. We all love you Mama, and will truly miss you!

A special thanks goes to Kim Moore. She was truly an angel sent to Mama at a time when she needed her. Mama, as well as her family, grew to love and depend on her, and was always there any time when we needed her!
