Agnes Pauline Yoder was born on May 3, 1923 in Kalona, Iowa and passed from this life on January 2, 2018 at Cherry Creek Nursing Center. Agnes was born and raised by Daniel and Elsie Yoder. After graduation from Kalona High School she graduated as a nurse in 1945 in the Government Cadet Nursing Program. She moved to Denver in 1947 and served as a nurse until retirement. She left Denver and spent a four year tour in Sitka, Alaska as a nurse at the government hospital, serving the native population. She returned to Denver where she was a long time active member of Central Christian Church, she loved the mountains and Denver. The Central Christian Church family was her home and "Miss Aggie", as she was known, was involved in unnumerable ways for almost seventy years. For instance, Aggie presided over the kitchen as the primary cook for church fellowship meals, was a founding member of the "Brown Bag Quilters" quilting for more thatn thirty years, and served as the church's historian for at least twenty more years. Two years ago, the church proclaimed "Miss Aggie Day" where a reception was held in her honor, presenting her with a special engraved spatula in recognition of her years of faithful service. Beloved by all, "Miss Aggie" is considered to be one of the great saints and pillars of the Central Christian Church in Denver. Survivors include her brother Ralph (Trudy) Yoder and three sisters-in-law: Clara Yoder, Joyce Yoder and Daveta Yoder. Preceding Agnes in death were her parents, two sisters: Gernie Bright and Ardis Shirkey and five brothers: Verton, Cletus, Raymond, Russell and James Yoder. Agnes will be interred beside her parents in Kalona, Iowa.
