I knew Agnes when I worked at The Valley Hospital many years ago.Even though at our ages it is inevitable, I was saddened to read of her passing. We both attended luncheons with a small group of retirees for several years, often sitting together and reminiscing. I know she gave her best to Valley for many years as an employee and later, a volunteer. I have fond memories of her. I send my sincere sympathy to her family.

Mrs. Stanton was our next door neighbor for all my life. She was a great friend to our family; my sisters and parents. Aggie ( as I called her) and my mom made the private Happy Hour mainstream :)

She always called me Lynn Ann even though the Ann was dropped by 7th grade. I will fondly remember Mrs. Aggie Stanton always. She was definitely the life of the party.

Sharyn, I have fond memories of the years we took our moms out for those September birthday lunches. Your Mom always livened up the conversation.
