Born in Westerly, she was the daughter of the late Carmine and Michelina Sposato. Agnes was the owner and operator of Agnes Ann’s Beauty Nook for 50 years. She was a long-time communicant of St. Michael Church in Pawcatuck where she was a member of the Daughters of Isabella. She was also a member of the “Girl’s Club” which consisted of several of her high school classmates. Family was most important to Agnes as she absolutely loved spending quality time with all of her family members. She loved to cook meals for her family, especially around the holidays; baking Italian Christmas cookies, breads, and jellies, etc, all in keeping with the Italian traditions. Agnes also enjoyed crocheting and knitting hats, blankets, afghans, and scarves not only for her family, but also donating them to the local hospital or neighborhood center.

Burgert of Ashaway, RI, Lauri A. Heflin of Indianapolis, IN, and Charlene A. LoPresto of Pawcatuck CT. She will be greatly missed by her 13 grandchildren and 2 great grandchildren and many nieces and nephews. Agnes was predeceased by five brothers Joseph, Pasquale, Robert, Ernest, Michael, as well as her sister Helen Koske.
