Our thoughts are with the Foley family. We will miss seeing Agnes in the neighborhood. She always had a cheerful hello, she would never accept a favor without returning it quickly. Her “pup” “sky”, “scruffy” the object of her unconditional patience and affection, her seasonally adorned goose, her slow cruise to watch out for kids or balls on the street on her drive to the dump or wherever she was off to…she was always headed somewhere and we could never pin her down, to schedule a hand to walk her “pup”. She was a great lady and we will miss her and her example.

Agnes was a dear friend of my mother. She exuded a joy for life and treated those around her with generosity. I got the pleasure of being around her mostly at dinners at her or my mothers home. She had a lighthearted spirit and I can still hear her mischievous giggle after saying some witty comment. I feel most inspired by Agnes because she never focused on any of her heartaches, instead she brought the Light and levity to the room. Sending my deepest condolences to all her family and friends. To loose such a special person means we all have our work to do: to spread more cheer this holiday season in her honor. 🍀

We are so very sorry to hear of Agnes's passing. When we moved to the neighborhood, she was the first to welcome us and often stopped to chat when any one of us were outside.

Over a few years, I found her hanging wreaths to decorate the entrance to our neighborhood. 2 years ago, I told her I would be happy to take that on, so she did not need to be out there in the cold. She said no thank you, but at then end of the season stopped by with the wreaths to say, "I'll take you up on your offer. You don't have to hang these ones, but it is nice to spruce things up for the season." I promised her I would take on the tradition with pride.

We will always remember her kindness. You will be missed by our family and this neighborhood. We will carry on the tradition in your memory. Rest In Peace, Agnes.

To her family and all who love and miss Agnes, please accept my condolences.
Mike,
I remember meeting your mom for the first time a couple summers ago when we followed you to her home in Brewster before kayaking. She was so pleasant, talking to us in the yard with her dog while we waited for you. We met her again last summer after kayaking while enjoying a cookout in your backyard. I recall how she remembered our names and was so friendly and engaging in our conversations.
I believe your cheerful and friendly nature is in part a reflection and influence from your mom.

I am so sorry to learn of your beautiful mother’s passing. She was a dear friend of my mother & family. I always loved that these sweet friends shared a special birthday together. It created a lifetime bond. Over the years I would call your mom to say hello or drop her a card in the mail to let her know I was thinking of her. Whenever I would call she would make me feel like I was one of her close friends checking in on her. Please accept my sincere condolences with your loss. She was a terrific woman who loved her family and friends very much. May she Rest In Peace.
