Dorchester's Aggie Wagner Passes At 92
Agnes Ann (Duchek) Wagner, a longtime resident of Dorchester, passed away June 19 at the age of 92. Her obituary follows:
Aggie lived a full and long life. She was welcomed into this world by Henry and Anna Duchek on February 17, 1923. Agnes left this world and passed into the loving arms of our Lord on June 19, 2015.
Agnes was reunited in heaven with her husband, Harvey; their son, Bill; granddaughter, Hope Ann; parents, Henry and Anna; brothers, Joe and Orin; and sisters, Alice, Marie, and Helen are there to welcome her.
Left on earth to be thankful for her life are her daughter-in-law, Judy Wagner; grandsons, Tony and Benjamin Wagner; granddaughter, Honey Lynn Wagner; her 6 Great Grandchildren, Ashlee and Brandon, Alessandra, Ashton, Jayden and Kinzey could make her smile, clap, and share a word in Czech.
Agnes shared her life with her nieces and nephews, cousins, and many friends throughout her life.
At their home in Dorchester, if Aggie wasn’t cleaning and polishing, she was baking kolaches or Monster cookies. She enjoyed her gardens of flowers and vegetables and could always find a weed or two which needed to be removed.
Agnes was kept as comfortable and occupied as possible in her final years on earth by the wonderful staff of friends at Tabitha Nursing Center of Crete.
After you finish reading this take a moment to just close your eyes and imagine Agnes smiling, clapping, and tapping her toes to the beat of a good Czech Polka right now, in Heaven.
A Memorial Service to celebrate and honor Agnes was held at 10 a.m. on Monday, June 29, 2015 at Kuncl Funeral Home in Crete. Inurnment took place at Fairview Cemetery in Lincoln. Memorials are suggested to the family for designation. Condolences may be left online at kunclfh.com
