Our beloved mother, grandmother, great grandmother, sister, and friend returned to heaven and the welcoming arms of her loving husband Phil and family on March 3, 1999.

Agnes was born April 14, 1919 in Pocatello Idaho to her parents LeRoy and Margaret Taylor. She married her sweetheart on June 19, 1939.Our mother has always been actively involved in making a positive difference. Her life has been one of service, in helping wherever she was needed; from the start of the Well Baby Clinics during World War II, to her long standing involvement with the PTA where she served as PTA president in five schools and was the best home room mother a kid could wish for. She was an accomplished gardener and her beautiful flowers were enjoyed by many. Agnes was active in civic fund drives and community politics. She taught the young people in her ward through her role as Primary teacher and was the Young Womens Sports Director, coaching winning softball and basketball teams. Her cakes for the bake sales were always the first ones to go.

She was the proud mother of Anita, Phil, and DeAnn. She also loved and nurtured seven grandchildren and six great grandchildren. Peg dearly loved her sisters and brothers.

We would like to thank our mother for her support, encouragement and unconditional love that she gave us so freely her entire life. She has always been a woman of great wisdom and kindness and she will continue to be a guiding light for all of us.

We love you infinities Mom!
