Agnes attended Grant School on Highway 20 in Dover Township. She graduated in 1942 from the Racine County School of Agriculture and Domestic Economy in Rochester. Her years as an "Aggie" were a cherished time in her life. She always spoke fondly of the classmates and faculty at the Ag School and was extremely proud to be a graduate. In the fall of 1942 she enrolled in a six month course at the Prospect Hall Secretarial School in Milwaukee. Upon graduation, she worked as a secretary at the Government Farm Office (known as the AAA) located in the Ag. School building until January 1953. On September 9, 1950, Agnes married Donald (Don) F.
