A devout Catholic, Agnes was a daily communicant of Guardian Angels RC Church in Edison. A member of The Legion of Mary, she visited the sick and volunteered at the same nursing home she would eventually end up in due to her Alzheimer's disease. She had a beautiful devotion to Mary, the Mother of God and attended many all-night vigils offering up prayers for those in need. She had a loving, happy-go-lucky spirit and you could often hear her whistling or singing a song. She loved to dance. Even as her disease progressed & eventually took her ability to do all else, she never lost the ability to smile brightly & often. She was beloved by all her caretakers who regarded her as “Sweet smiling Agnes.”
