I am so sorry for your loss. Agnes was a lovely lady to know. She was a long time member of the Patten Woman’s Club and that is where I first met her. She had a lot of positive energy and a great smile. She certainly enjoyed playing the piano. She has been missed for many years. The last time we were together was a car trip to Houlton with Margaret Baker and myself, we had such a great time. We laughed both ways, up and back. It’s a good memory and one I won’t forget💕

I will always remember Mrs. Howes as being a kind and welcoming lady. I remember how much she enjoyed her music and playing the organ at church. Prayers for the repose of her soul and prayers of condolence to Chris, Bill, Kevin, and John.

To Agnes' family. Agnes was my next door neighbor for 30 years before we moved out of town. We enjoyed our visits with a cup of tea and one of her delicious desserts. We especially enjoyed our sewing classes at the high school with Annette Noyes our teacher. Annette always brought a snack for us girls. I enjoyed listening to her play the piano, she so enjoyed it.
Agnes was a loving and caring lady and I will miss her. Jeanie
