She enjoyed spending time with any and all that had the time to talk and share their lives with her. Her commitment to do for others was recognized when the Ocala Star Banner featured her in Volunteer Spotlight, in November 2001. In addition to her volunteer work, she was a member of many organizations some being the Catholic Daughters of America (Past Grand Regent and State Representative), Altar Rosary Society, Blessed Trinity Council of Catholic Women, VFW Ladies Auxiliary, American Legion Auxiliary (32 years), Ladies of the Elks (Charter Member), St. John's Catholic Church choir, Marion Harmony Group, Good Sam and the Girl Scouts of America (Troop Leader). Christmas was a very special time for Agnes, as she would assist the jolly old elf, by donning his suit and singing carols to neighbors and nursing home residents. Also, she would always fit in time to listen to the little ones wishes for gifts under the tree. Agnes loved to smile, laugh, sing, and be with people. She always had music in her oversized heart, knowing life is a song and God's love was the music. As she resided in Florida, she looked forward to receiving the Press Republican to maintain touch with her beloved North Country.
