Aggie was loved by all and she loved everyone she met. In her younger days, she loved to bowl and play softball. She spent many years taking an exercise class that would put on a show known as the Forks Follies. In Aggie’s spare time she loved to play BINGO, read, embroidery, stamp, play cards and watch Wheel of Fortune and Jeopardy. Aggie was a member of the Forks Emblem Club. She was club president several times and held many state offices for years until she finally became state president which she enjoyed very much.

Aggie was employed at the Forks Community Hospital for 35 years, from 1977 to 2012. She was head of medical records for many years; her favorite part of working was going down to see the new mommas and their babies to get their footprints and information.

A celebration of Aggie’s life will be held at a later date in Forks, Washington.
