On May 12, 1942, Agnes was united in marriage to John V. Gitter at the Holy Trinity Catholic Church in New Ulm. Following their marriage, Agnes and John farmed for many years in Severance Township, Sibley County. After her husband’s death, Agnes continued to reside in rural Gibbon. Since February 2012, she lived at Orchard Hill in New Ulm. Agnes was quiet yet strong and was known for being a caring and positive person. She had a delightful sense of humor and was a great example of taking life as it came. She enjoyed gardening, quilting, cooking, and baking, but found her greatest pleasure in spending time with her children, grandchildren, and great-grandchildren. Agnes was a member of St. Willibrord’s Catholic Church in Gibbon and the Council of Catholic Women.
