      Agnes M. Blakey, 94

      Funeral services for Agnes M. Blakey of North Mankato were held Monday afternoon, Aug. 9, at the Sathe-Osterberg Funeral Home in Jackson, with Pastor Ed Wenger, Pastor Jon Campbell and Pastor Carter Krumbach officiating. Agnes M. Blakey died Aug. 5, 2004, at her daughter?s home in North Mankato. Burial was in Riverside Cemetery, Jackson.

      Casket bearers were her grandsons: Ryan Bergan, Joshua Bergan, Larry Blakey, Lynden Blakey, Kelsey Asche and Mark Williams. Lois Thoreson was the organist, Jo Olson sang a solo, and George Bakalyer and Sandy Robinson sang a duet. Funeral arrangements were in care of the Sathe-Osterberg Funeral Home of Jackson.

      Agnes Marie Roe, daughter of Albert and Mina (Hoganson) Roe, was born Aug. 22, 1909, in Des Moines Township, Jackson County. She attended country school and later graduated from Jackson High School in 1927.

      On Aug. 22, 1927, she was united in marriage to Verland E. Blakey in Jackson. After marriage, they farmed in Jackson County and later in Cottonwood County. They moved into Jackson in 1995. After Verland?s death on July 24, 1996, Agnes continued to make her home in Jackson. She later moved to North Mankato in 1998, and four months ago she moved in with her daughter.

      Agnes was baptized and confirmed in the Lutheran faith. She had been a member of the Living Word Lutheran Church in Windom and the Hilltop Community Church in Jackson, and she attended the Word of Life Free Lutheran Church in Mankato. She was very active in the churches, teaching Sunday school for many years, in circles, and Ladies Aid and in the Zion Society. Agnes made many sweaters and quilts for layettes to be sent to the Lutheran World Relief, and she loved to do handwork - crocheting.

      Agnes is survived by one son, Gordon and wife Shirley Blakey of Brighton, Colo.; three daughters, Pam and husband Tom Wilmes of North Mankato, Verla and husband Vincent Williams of Iowa City, Iowa, and Sharon and husband Dalen Asche of Bloomington, Minn.; 15 grandchildren; 19 great-grandchildren; four great-great-grandchildren; three step-grandchildren; one niece, Elaine Graves of Jackson; and two nephews, Roland and wife Mari Graves of Rochester, Minn., and Sid Roe of Arizona.
