Agnes worked most of her life as a poultry and almond farmer with her husband, Gasper, and later her son, Steve and daughter in law, Frances.

Agnes also enjoyed playing golf with family and was lucky enough to sink a “hole-in-one”. In her later years, she enjoyed the loving companionship of her dog, Chico. Agnes’ favorite thing to do was to spend time with her family; especially her grandchildren and great-grandchildren who she always welcomed with a beautiful smile and open loving arms
