She was always kind, helpful, enthusiastic and thoughtful to all, adults and children. Many enjoyed her great cooking and benefited from her skills as a seamstress. Agnes had a magnetic personality that drew people to her and to the God she served. She was full of love and good humor, pure, serene, humble, honest and ready for any sacrifice.

She was preceded in death by siblings, Mary Poletti, Kathleen Craney, Jim and John Mullally.
Sister Agnes celebrated her Golden Jubilee in 2014. At that time she summarized her life: “ I have had 50 years of tremendous graces: daily Mass, the Blessed Sacrament in our midst, special family members, rare and holy sisters, the guiding hand of priests and great companions on my religious journey. I have been able to teach and fulfill the joy of my life, teaching. Teaching has always been a delight for me, never work. During all the years of my religious life I’ve known the generous loving guidance of Mary, Joseph and Jesus. They have been the foundation on which I could build a life rooted in faith, hope and love.
