Agnes was born in Fredericksburg, Texas on December 17, 1926 to Adolf and Lydia Nebgen. She married Golden “Gunnie” Ross on May 17, 1952 at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Fredericksburg. Agnes loved playing music. She started playing the pump pedal organ at the age of 15, in the Stonewall Catholic Church. She played piano and accordion in several bands and even started a band. They played at many a dance hall across the Hill Country. She enjoyed going to dances and that is where she met Gunnie.
After getting married, she moved to Spicewood and lived on Fall Creek Road for 63 years. She worked with Gunnie, helping feed the animals as well as farming and ranching activities. She grew up helping her father and family with baling hay and other farming activities. Prior to getting married she was a bookkeeper in Fredericksburg. When their oldest son started his construction business, Agnes helped with the books. She was always there to lend a hand and a heart to all of her children no matter what through the years.
She was very active in helping with the St. John’s Catholic Church getting to be a church. She also played music at Queen of Angels Chapel in Spicewood for several years. She played the organ for 49 years. She had such a strong faith and rarely missed church. She only missed playing at Midnight Mass one time due to weather. She was a meticulous seamstress, enjoyed her flowers, hummingbirds, gardening, cooking, baking and visiting with family and friends. She rarely met a stranger.

Agnes was my dear sister who was smart, articulate, talented and loved by our family and those around her. She was musically inclined and played the piano, piano accordian, saxophone, and harmonica. She and I, Julia, played in The Stonewall Orchestra which our father formed when we were 14 and 16 years old, providing music for dancing, weddings, school closings and birthday celebrations. She played the church organ for 49+years and hoped to make 50, but declining health prevented that. She will be missed by her family and her brothers and me. May She Rest in Peace. Amen
