    It is with a heavy heart to hear of Agnes’s passing. A great soul has left us.

    I am so grateful for all the care and consideration she had towards me, for as long as I can remember. She was an example of unwavering geniality and kindness, and I hope that her example has made a difference to others as much as I hope it has to me.

    She will be missed.

    I knew Agnes through my Mother’s strong friendships with many members of the Ronan family. Agnes was certainly present at many of the family get togethers.
    Agnes was a very kind lady who certainly was a pillar amongst her own family members, caring for all at “the farm”.
    Good memories
    RIP, Agnes

    Agnes is the last of our wonderful Ronan aunts. We nieces and nephews were cherished by many “mothers” which became particularly significant as we lost our own respective mothers.
    God bless you dear Agnes for welcoming us at the Ronan homestead.You were the heart of the home, and such a loving heart!

    It was a big shock for me to hear of Agnes passing as I brought her communion on Friday and she was happy and telling me all about her wonderful 90th birthday celebration. I know she has gone straight to Heaven, she always was a faithful servant of God and always praying and being kind and helpful to others.It was an honour to know you, may you rest in peace my dear Agnes. I will surely miss you.!

    Your Life Agnes was a real inspiration to me. I know you are in heaven looking down on us all. Your life-long unselfish devotion to Ralph was remarable and your faith
    admirable. I will never forget
    the 2 summers I spent on your
    farm as a teenager helping out. Very fond memories. Love you.

    Greg and I are thinking of you during this sad time as you celebrate the life of your dear sister Agnes and her journey “home” to an eternity with God, and those who have gone before her.

    Unfortunately, we will not be able to be with you as Greg is currently in hospital.

    We have fond memories of Agnes as well as your kindness to our family when Barbara died in 2004.

    We look forward to spending time with you as soon as this is possible.

    You will be in our prayers in a special way tomorrow and the days to come.

    I will call you in the very near future.

    So sorry for the loss of this lovely lady who has been a pillar of strength & faith in our community. So happy I was able to attend her 90th birthday celebration recently and enjoy her beautiful presence one last time. Our thoughts & prayers are with you at this time. So sorry we cannot be there as we are away.

    I’m sorry we cannot be there for my dear Aunt Agnes’ funeral. Growing up , she was like a 2nd mom to us. We’d run across the field to be at the ‘other’ farm. She would feed us, cut our hair, and scold us when Mary said we were being ‘impudent’ – but then sneak us homemade sugar cookies in the back kitchen. I don’t think any of us knew until later years how precious our aunts and uncle were to us kids. What a strong, quiet and steadfast pillar of the community and in our family.
