Agnes, originally from Posen, IL, graduated from Thornton Township High School in 1951. She entered mortuary school and became a funeral director, assisting with the family business, Zimny Funeral Home. She also held careers as an Activities Director of a nursing home and as a realtor. One of her most treasured talents was ballroom dancing and she enjoyed performing at various events. Agnes will be remembered most for her beautiful smile, her loving heart and her words of encouragement to others.
