Agnes D. Ozment
March 27, 1922 – April 1, 2019
Agnes D. Ozment, 97, passed away peacefully at home in her sleep on April 1, 2019. She was born on March 27, 1922 to Jesse Harmon Dedmond and Mamie Brown Dedmond and lived her entire life in Greensboro. She met her husband, Jack G. Ozment while working at Ambrosia Cake Bakery in Greensboro, and she later worked for the Department of the Army while he served in World War II. Following the war she worked as a legal secretary in Greensboro for many, many years before retiring, and after retirement was a volunteer at Urban Ministries Food Bank. Agnes was an avid reader, and a “wordy” person as she used to say. She spent many hours working any kind of puzzle that dealt with words such as crossword puzzles, and loved flowers, crocheting, knitting, watching basketball on TV, and she especially loved her family. Nothing was more sacred to her than her children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren. Agnes was preceded in death by her parents, her sister Vardelle Yow, her brother James Dedmond, and her husband, Jack. Surviving are her daughters; Cathy Ozment West and husband Tom of Greensboro, Michele Ozment Gerringer and husband Jerry of Greensboro, and her son Tim Ozment and his wife Debbie of Rocky Mount. Also surviving are 8 grandchildren and several great grandchildren. Funeral services will be held at 11:00am on Friday April 5, 2019 at the Hanes Lineberry Funeral Home Sedgefield Chapel conducted by Reverend Gene Dean. The family will receive friends at the funeral home immediately following the funeral service. A private family burial will occur at a later time. The family would like to thank Hospice and Palliative Care of Greensboro, and especially Jane, Madera, and LaKeish who took great care of their Mom. And, the family would also like to thank Dr. Hal T. Stoneking, MD who provided outstanding care for their mother for many years. Flowers are welcome, or in lieu of flowers donations may be made to Hospice and Palliative Care of Greensboro.

Agnes was a beautiful and elegant woman who added much happiness to my childhood. I loved Uncle Jack's roses and her needlework. She tried really hard to teach me to crochet, but alas I could not and still cannot sit still long enough for detailed handwork. She was a good role model for me in how to balance work and home life. I loved hearing her talk and laugh - such a gentle sound. Cathy, Shelly and Tim, I am sorry for your loss. She was the last of her generation in our family, but we are richer for having had them in our lives.
