Agnes had surely enjoyed the arts and sports. She was an avid golfer, enthusiastic reader, a poet and ceramist. She has written many short poems and stories. Agnes has said that she found her "muse" with the Vintage Players at Theatre Lawrence. She has left behind many wonderful paintings, sculptures and friends. She was known by her friends for her quick wit, sense of humor and outgoing personality. She will be greatly missed!

Agnes has donated her body to the KU Med Center. Plans for a Life Celebration are being arranged.

The family suggests donations to Theatre Lawrence or Lawrence Memorial Hospital Oncology Center.
