Biography

“Seeing is believing.” For many, those words simply represent a motto. But for Agnes Jasek, it summarized in every way who she was. She was modest, quiet and observant, taking in everything around her and always thinking before acting. She was a realist, someone who was efficient and practical in everything she did. She was a friendly person who truly cared about those around her.

       She was the daughter of John Frank Molnoskey and Theresa Pekar Molnoskey. Raised in Gonzales, Texas - on a farm south of town, she was brought up to be tolerant and trustworthy. As a child, she learned to be conscientious, responsible and punctual. These were all traits that she would carry with her throughout her life.

      As a young girl, Agnes was always aware of how others around her felt and this quality served her well. With a deep capacity to tolerate the feelings of others, Agnes was generally able to avoid conflicts. It seemed as if Agnes was the family member who was always working to keep stress at bay. Preferring a quiet environment where she could concentrate, Agnes also had the ability to relate well with her family and friends. Agnes was raised with ten siblings. She had five sisters; Tracie, Adeline, Helen, Madeline and Laurencia and she had five brothers; David, Joe, Ludwig, Johnny and Edwin. Agnes was constantly involved in activities with her family. Agnes and her siblings had the typical rivalries while growing up but they deeply cared for each other and shared many life experiences over the years.

      Growing up, Agnes was one of those children who didn’t need to be in the center of a whirlwind of activity. She was content to entertain herself. Agnes was never pushy when it came to games and other activities, but rather, she was able to enjoy the pure fun these could bring. In just about everything she did as a child, Agnes was intent on pleasing both the adults and the other children around her. Agnes took part in a number of activities as a child. In her spare time she and her siblings would make and play with corn cob whirlybirds. They would also use soda bottles as trucks and play with them in the sand. Agnes was skilled in picking cotton amoung other things.

      Agnes enjoyed learning. She always had a great memory and was particularly skilled at retaining factual information. Agnes was generally quiet in class, learning best through observation. She often showed great concentration and was competent at completing the tasks at hand. Good with details, Agnes was painstaking and accurate in her efforts. All of these talents culminated in a successful school career at Gonzales High School where she finished her 11th grade, enjoying some courses more than others.

      Most folks would say that Agnes was shy until they got to know her. Those who were privileged to know her well learned that she was a solid, good friend. Agnes was reluctant to generalize about people, and she based her friendships on her personal experiences. Because of this, Agnes best trusted those people that she truly knew. She was concerned about how those around her felt, and she always seemed to uncover the positive side of people. She could relate to others and had the ability to see their point of view, to “walk a mile in their shoes,” as the saying goes. The friends that she made, Agnes kept. While growing up, some of her best friends were Maryann Pekar, Agnes Pekar and Beatrice (Botsy) Pekar Opiela who was a good friend/cousin also.

      Love can’t be defined but must be experienced. That was so true for Agnes. On October 17, 1955 Agnes married Daniel Jasek at St. James Catholic Church in Gonzales, Texas. She was totally committed to Daniel and maintained traditional ideals about marriage. It was as if Agnes naturally sensed her spouse’s needs, and accepted those feelings unconditionally. Although Agnes disliked conflict, she did not take flight from discord, but rather sought to preserve harmony even during the most trying times.

      Agnes was a good mother to her children. She had “old fashioned” parental values and could handle typical family conflicts in a fair and calm manner. Because she trusted emotions, Agnes was reluctant to force issues and used gentle persuasion to resolve situations. In this way she seemed to radiate an aura of warmth and caring to those around her, always thinking before acting. In addition, Agnes was a master planner. No matter how hectic life around her might be, she seemed to know and track everyone’s schedule. Agnes was blessed with five children. Three sons; Sidney, Matthew, Glen and two daughters; Deborah and Joan. They were also blessed with sixteen grandchildren, Jessica Kolb, Natalie Castloo, Victoria Vogt, Katon Morris, Koby Morris, Kami Jo Morris, Dale Jasek, Kelly Desautels, Travis Jasek, Jacob Jasek, Luke Jasek, Sarah Jasek, David Fisbeck, Julianne FIsberck, Nicklaus Jasek, Noah Jasek and ten great grandchildren and one great great grandchild.

      If you gave Agnes a deadline, she would meet it. Agnes was always on task. Without hesitation, Agnes could adhere to anything and see it through to its completion. Her primary occupation was a mother and homemaker. During that time, Agnes excelled in working on the family farm in order to make ends meet. She was able to quickly grasp concrete ideas and could organize and plan the best way to accomplish things with remarkable consistency. Agnes was good at staying on track and was considerate in listening to what others had to say. In this way, Agnes had a true gift for being able to come up with practical resolutions to difficult problems. She was often the "go to" person who managed to put forth a win/win solution for all parties.

      Agnes liked to experience things first hand, in addition to simply learning about them. This quality influenced Agnes's choice of leisure time activities. A methodical and patient worker, Agnes preferred to set aside uninterrupted time to work on her favorite pursuits of raising her children, gardening/ flowers, cooking and baking (especially kolaches). Agnes was content to sit quietly alone, enjoying her time all by herself and could often be found just reading about her favorite pastimes.

      Due to her excellent organizational skills, Agnes was a welcome addition to the professional and community organizations to which she belonged. Agnes could bring established, successful methods to the discussion table, along with a generous helping of common sense. Agnes was good at making and keeping schedules and never got bogged down in unnecessary details. Throughout her later years, Agnes was an active member of the Catholic Daughters of the Americas and Altar Society.

      Agnes was active in the community. She was practical and grounded and based her decisions on first hand experience. She was responsible and liked working to achieve results rather than just chattering about possibilities. Politically, Agnes was a strong supporter of pro-life and pro-family (mainly Republican). As a fervent Catholic, Agnes prayed for all elected officials to do the right thing.

      An individual who respected and maintained traditional values, her faith was important to Agnes. Her compassion, consideration and sympathy toward others was evident in her personal beliefs. She was a member of St. Joseph Catholic Church. During that time, she was a CCD Teacher for several years, a member of the KJZT, Altar Society and worked many picnics.

      Anyone who traveled or went on vacation with Agnes had a memorable time. Her favorite vacations included the beach with family, especially at Port Aransas.

      Agnes had several dogs: Pepper, Buster, Tiger, Foxy, Rocky, Trixy and Devito as well as many cats, over many years of her life. Agnes was as loyal to her pets as they were to her.

      Agnes passed away on March 10, 2020 at home on the family farm of natural causes. She is survived by her husband Daniel, her children Deborah, Sidney, Matthew, Joan, Glen and their spouses, her grandchildren, great grandchildren and great great grandchild. Services were held at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Moulton, Texas. Agnes was laid to rest in Praha Catholic Cemetery in Praha, Texas.

      It is said that some people can’t see the forest for the trees. Agnes was able to focus on each individual tree, tending to its needs, thus making the forest stronger as a whole. Agnes was a trustworthy, pragmatic and sympathetic person, the kind of woman to whom everyone was drawn. She was thorough and practical. Agnes Jasek was very literal with her words. You always knew where you stood with Agnes. She will be missed.

A quote from her husband Daniel: "Agnes, my wife was a special human being. She turned everything that was ordinary into extra ordinary. She performed everything for the greater honor and glory of God. I told our five children many times while she was still living that she is a true Saint! God rest her soul!"
