Thelma Jean "TJ" Agnes passed away peacefully in her home with her family by her side on Wednesday, August 3, 2016.
TJ was born on November 12, 1939 to Fred Lee and Gladys Mae Koskie. She spoke fondly of her time growing up on the farm in Flora, IL as the "baby girl" of 7 children. She took the lessons she learned there & carried them with her as she began her own family. Her 3 children were what she considered her greatest accomplishment in life. TJ was their provider and nurturer. She willingly sacrificed any personal comforts or conveniences in effort to make her children's lives more enriched. Ensuring her children grew to know Christ and accept him as their Heavenly Father was TJ' s passion and she can find peace in the outcome of her efforts.
In 1977, TJ married Joseph Agnes and together they cultivated a family unit that has proven unbreakable. As a grandmother and great-grandmother, TJ was loving and generous. While she was always available to give valuable advice and gentle comfort, she also demanded accountability and pushed her children and grandchildren to be the best person they could possibly be.
TJ has been a light in so many of our life's and we can rest assured that she has traded in her troubles for a crown.
TJ will be joining her Parents, Fred & Gladys Koskie, Brothers & Sister: Fred Koskie Jr., Ruby Hurst, Earl Koskie at the right hand of God and will be lovingly remembered by her Husband: Joseph Agnes, Children: Kelly Gober and her husband Fred, Terry Compton and her husband Steve & Robert Edgar, Step Children: Joseph Agnes Jr., Jimmy Agnes, Teresa Sanders, Chris Agnes & Lisa Newman, Brothers & Sister: Aletha Koskie, Bo Koskie, & Richard Koskie as well as by her grandchildren, great-grandchildren, nieces & nephews.
