    I am so happy to have been able to call Aggie my friend.
    I lived across the driveway from her for several years. It was there that I came to know her. She was one of the finest, kindest human beings I have ever known! I enjoyed our visits at Bethany until this past February when I had a Total Knee surgery. Suddenly, the corona virus scare closed Bethany and I couldn’t reach her!
    My heart ached to hear of her passing without being able to say goodbye. Please, please let me know when the service happens at St. Anne and Joaquin so that I can be there!

    Sherry and family, we are so sorry for your loss. We continue to keep you all in our prayers!

  4. Rick and Faye Majerus says:

    Aggie was such a sweet lady. We got to know her when she was a neighbor to Rick’s mom, Elaine Majerus in the Prairie View Condos. Elaine and Aggie did a lot together and we know they enjoyed each other’s company in the condo area with card playing and getting together for various activities.
    Elaine is now residing at Edgewood Vista Assisted Living and has been there since last August or September. Rick was able to take Elaine up to see Aggie at Bethany on 42nd for a visit a few months ago. The visit was short but sweet.
    We would sure like to attend Aggie’s funeral at St’s Anne and Joachim. We will watch for it. Our sympathy and prayers to all of you.

    How saddened I was to learn of the passing of Aggie. I got to know her when we worked together in the Soil Science Department at NDSU. Her smile, laugh, cheerfulness and thoughtfulness were her trademarks; not to mention her artistic talents she shared through the many posters she created for birthdays, retirements, etc. in the department. When Aggie would visit a mutual friend and co-worker of ours, Lorraine Moen, she would always bring her some homemade goodies. Lorraine would share these with my sons (she called them her “little cudjjers). Needless to say I managed to sneak a few from them and I have to say, she made THE BEST sugar cookies I ever had! My deepest sympathy and prayers for comfort and peace to all.

    My deepest sympathy to you Vonda and Jim and your siblings. It was a stressful time for you all trying to be safe and give her love and support in every way possible. I know she was feeling your love and the comfort of her faith. My love is beyond words. Peace be with you. Hugs

    Aggie was a wonderful friend at First Lutheran. She was so talented and I was so lucky to know her. Thinking of her family at this difficult time. Peace.

  8. Susan Johnson says:

    Sherry, Vonda and Tom and family, I am very sorry for your loss of your mother. I pray for all of you during this very difficult time. So hard to loose our moms. May the many happy memories bring smiles to your faces and bring you comfort. Sincerely, Susan and Clayton Johnson

    Sympathy to Aggie’s family. Aggie was such a sweet soul. She blessed many First Lutheran Church 4th graders over the years with her beautiful handcrafted stoles. Many loving memories of Aggie.

  10. Jane Grindberg says:

    Aggie was a fun gal to have at our Tuesday knit and crochet group at First Lutheran, we will miss her, when she brought treats they were always super good with many surprises if it was a holiday, have some crazy pictures of us.
    We were able to share her birthday celebration this year at Bethany, lots of memories!
    She will be missed!

    Dear Aggie’s family,
    We were so honored to have Aggie as a neighbor at Prairie View Estates for the past 5 years. She did not have a mean bone in her body. She was always so sweet and so happy to see me when I came to visit her. There were many times that I was in the middle of a recipe when I realized that I didn’t have enough eggs, or milk or vanilla and she always was so happy to share.
    When we would go to the cabin on the weekend, she always volunteered to water my plants. I don’t know what she did to them, but they always looked so much better and healthier after she took care of them for a few days.
    This past summer I planted shasta daisies in my pots and she thought they were so beautiful. She helped me take care of them because they are a little fussier to work with than other plants.

    We found out that she worked with some Romanians at NDSU that I had as ESL (English As A Second Language) students when they first came to Fargo. I invited them over for coffee and we had fun reminiscing with her.

    We will miss her so much. I was amazed at her artistic talents in her drawing and crocheting. I loved to hear her talk about her family–she was so proud of all of them.

    The photo you posted of her is just beautiful. She was truly an attractive woman and talked so highly of her late husband.

    My plants will never be the same.

    So sorry for your loss

    Agnes, “Mrs. Evenson/mom” to me, was like my third mother. Her son Tom and I became very close friends in our child hood, teenage years, and I am truly sorry for the families loss! She was an amazing women and cared very much for her children, friends and anyone she came in contact with. She will be missed by all!
    My prayers and thoughts go out to her kids and family in this time of loss!
