To her children, Carol Ann, and Family and son, Ronald and family.
  What a great person the world has lost.  A truer unselfish person, I never knew. The kindest of most, and always ready to lend a helping hand. Whether a stranger or an Amish Family she heard of in need. Aggie was there
with clothes, food and any help.  A model marriage she had.  Know as Hazel during her days at LCHS, we the family knew of her baking and cooking talents as they did. Agnes in WW11, wished to have been an nurse, but uanbl However more importantly, she was most compassionate in her heart and soul. Never did or would you hear from you, that she did this or that for you or others. Never reminded others that she should have been given back any thing, but
continued her acts of mercy, even while at St. Anne;s Home, giving some things to others in need. This is the true Christian person she was and lived. May my dearest Sister and the best one could have, REST NOW IN THE ARMS
OF OUR HEAVENLY FATHER.  Know that your Dad, Lloyd was there to greet on and had his birthday on Nov. 2nd. and will celebrate her 90th in Heaven.  Her parents, Frank and Barbara Weiss celebrated their Wedding Anniv. on Sunday Nov. 14th, 2010, and greeting her also. Do hug my son, Mike for me,Agnes, okay.  Prayers are with you, Carol, Barry, Fon and Genia, Michael, Melissa, Amy Brittany, Adam and Aaron.

Blessings to all of you.  
Aunt Rita (Weiss) Boyer

Dearest Aggie, You were a fine, generous, kind lady.  You were always there to be of help whenever anyone needed.  Our world will not be the same without you, but The LORD need you in heaven and he called you.  We will go on, and your memory will always be there.  We will miss your pea salad, and your direct manner.

Peace be with you. 
Connie & Tony Rizzuto
