Agnes grew up between Spokane, St. Maries, and Marble Creek. She attended St. Mary Catholic Academy in St. Maries until the 8th grade. She then went on to St. Gertrude’s Catholic School in Cottonwood. Following high school, Agnes moved to Spokane Valley where she worked various jobs to support herself.

Agnes was a member of the St. Mary Immaculate Catholic Church and a member of the Ladies of the Elks both in St. Maries. A devout Catholic, her faith was very strong, she loved her church, and she loved the Lord. Anytime there was a bazaar or dinner at the church, she was there volunteering her time.
