Agnes Fitzpatrick Weaver, 74, of Flower Mound, Texas passed away on March 25, 2021 in Carrollton, Texas. Agnes, known to friends as Aggie, was born in Franklin, Massachusetts to Alice Mary (Whelan) Fitzpatrick and Gordon Hatch Fitzpatrick on October 18, 1946. She graduated from Wahconah High School in 1965. She studied visual arts at Berkshire Community College and graduated from Labaron Hairdressing School. She had many talents which led to a wide range of jobs over the years including working as a hair dresser, working in printing and binding at General Electric (GE), and working in the art and floral departments at Michael’s. But her true life’s passion was fulfilled when she worked as a nanny for several families over many years. Her love for animals and children was expressed through her support of the ASPCA and ChildFund International, where she sponsored a young girl in Brazil. She enjoyed many hobbies which included art in various forms (such as painting, doll making, and crafting), teaching children, cycling, gardening, and movies. Aggie proudly displayed the Apostolic Blessing that she received from Pope Francis in 2016.

Aggie met the love of her life, Glenn Weaver, in the laundry room of their apartment building when they both worked at GE. After a romantic courtship, they were engaged in one of Aggie’s favorite places, Newport, Rhode Island. After their dream wedding, Aggie and Glenn enjoyed a devoted marriage of 33 years. Their love for each other was expressed on a daily basis both in word and deed. They exemplified the true meaning of “for better, for worse, in sickness, and in health”.

Although life threw Aggie a curve ball 23 years ago, she always lived life to the fullest. She found great pleasure in spending quality time with her beloved husband and friends. Aggie was very proud of being 100% Irish. In true Irish fashion, she was known for her love of laughter and her gift of gab. Her smiling Irish eyes and contagious laugh meant that she never met a stranger. To know her was to love her. She would joke that she had an “Under 5 and Over 50 Fan Club”. (Although it could be argued that her fan club included anyone of any age!) Aggie loved to tell everyone that she was the 18th Duchess of Devonshire. And when any healthcare worker asked for her birthdate, she unfailingly told them that she was born on October 18, 1412 which always produced a laugh. She loved expressing her joy of life through her beautiful clothing, which often included gorgeous hats and anything that sparkled. She also took great joy in saying, “Noapte bună, somn ușor,” which is Romanian for, “Good night, sleep easy.” Aggie is preceded in death by her father, Gordon; mother, Alice; and beloved fur babies, Princess, Lady Liliana, and Duchess Daisy.

Aggie is survived by her loving husband, Glenn Weaver; sister, Alice (Fitzpatrick) Gordan; brothers, Arthur (Buddy) Fitzpatrick and Cornelius (Connie) Fitzpatrick; nieces Ana and Brenda; and nephews, Patrick, Brian, Jay, and Eric.

Irish Blessing May the road rise to meet you. May the wind be always at your back. May the sun shine on your face, The rains fall soft upon your fields. And until we meet again, May God hold you in the palm of His hand.
