1933 - 2014
Agnes McCaffery, 80, passed away on Saturday, Jan. 25, 2014. She was affectionately known by everyone as Grammy. Born June 3, 1933, in Kenosha, Wis. She was the youngest of a large, loving and hard working Polish family.
Her family was the light of her life, and she let us know it every single day until the very end. She was a wife, mother, and grandmother and in those roles we could not have asked for a better or stronger woman. She did everything she was supposed to do and so much more. She taught us to love deeply, laugh often, give back to our community and a deep faith in God. We are thankful that our mother taught us to love each other in a way that will make getting through this possible.
She was co-founder and owner of Waltons Funerals and Cremations. She loved the years she spent volunteering in the lunch room at Bishop Manogue High School and with St. Marys Auxiliary Board. She was so humbled when at the age of 75 she was honored by Casa De Vida at the annual Mothers Day luncheon for Mother of the Year. Grammy seldom missed any of her childrens or grandchildrens sporting or school events. She was always their biggest fan and supporter.
She is survived by her loving husband, Ed; daughters, Paula McCaffery and Tammy Dermody (Michael); sons, Ed McCaffery (Tanya) and Tim McCaffery (Claudia); grandchildren, Joey, Nikki, Calvin, Edward, Griffin, Jack, Avery, Aiden, Ashton, Pearce and Craig.
