Born on Oct. 15, 1921, in the Shantytown section of Laflin, Agnes was one of 13 children to the late Michael and Anna Kubic Timek. Agnes grew up in Shantytown and attended local school in Jenkins Township.
On Nov. 22, 1941, Agnes married Stanley J. Libertoski. Together they started something special. Agnes and Stanley owned and operated Stan's Fairway Market, in the Parsons sections until Stanley passed on April 24, 1999. During this time Agnes was a hard worker and a proud mother of six daughters. As her daughters grew, Agnes became a proud grandmother of 15 grandchildren, 18 great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren. Family was everything to Agnes and Stanley, and now looking back they did start something special, a beautiful family.
Agnes was an active member in her community and in her faith. She was a past member of the St. Joseph Church, Hudson, where Agnes was an active member in the Confraternity of Christian Mothers, the quilters and all of the church projects through the years, especially making pierogies and working hard at the church bazaars. She became a member of Ss. Peter and Paul Church, Plains Township, after the closure of St. Joseph Church. She was also a longtime member of the Ladies Auxiliary of the Parsons Veterans of Foreign Wars Post and the Ladies Auxiliary of the Parsons American Legion.
Agnes enjoyed volunteering at the Golden Years Nursing Home facility for many years following her retirement and enjoyed entertaining family and friends. She was well known for her kindness, entertaining personality and great sense of humor, as well as her beautiful embroidery, quilts, crochet and needlepoint.
Agnes was preceded in death by her husband, Stanley; brothers, Michael, Francis and Joseph; sisters, Evelyn Pientka, Anna Greeley, Katie Shuleski, Mamie Kulikowich and Irene Rowker; and three infant siblings.
Agnes is survived by her daughters, Barbara Mondulick, Bear Creek; Loretta Washick, Thornhurst; Agnes Koerber Fells, Lake Winola; Evelyn Kelly, Shantytown; Irene Mahon-Newmark, Sparta, N.J.; Christine Libertoski, Wilkes-Barre; brother Stanley, Suscon; 15 grandchildren; 18 great-grandchildren, two great-great grandchildren; and many nieces and nephews.
