Agnes wrapped herself in a blanket of goodness, intregrity and creativity. She was a gifted seamstress and quilter, she loved both, but was most happy when asked to make clothes for many beautiful, procelain and heirloom dolls. She lead a life of dedication to God, her husband, her family and her church. We are all privileged to have known and loved her. It is sad for us, but not for her. Surely, she will rest in peace. If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane, I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again. Bradshaw 3131 Minnehaha Ave So. 612-724-3621
