Agnes was a loving wife to the late Ocie Fikes. She loved her Faith and her God for so many years. She attended daily mass and led the Rosary before Mass. Every Monday for years she would go after Mass and visit Care Inn Nursing Home and Jackson County Hospital Patients. Afterward she went to visit her brother and would play dominoes, talk Czech, and enjoy coffee and sweets. Family and friends were most important to Agnes. She was always helping others and never met a stranger. She loved cooking and baking and insisted you eat. No one ever left her house hungry.
She loved playing dominoes, and winning, of course! Her favorite time of the day was sitting outside on the porch swing.
