AGAN, Elsie Nogueira - Age: 82 years. Elsie Nogueira Agan passed peacefully on June 20, 2008. A devoted wife of the late Peter Agan and loving mother to daughters Renee Agan Clark and Doreen Agan Estremo. She was the daughter of the late Victorino Nogueira and Rosa de Olivera Nogueira and sister to Katherine Schachair and the late Adele Davis. Elsie enjoyed all of the events of life with her grandchildren Shelby Russell Neubauer, Courtney Clark Abril, Pietro Estremo and Ashley Clark. She was looking forward to her first great-grandchild, "Baby Neubauer." She is survived by numerous nieces, nephews and many friends in the Tomales, Petaluma and Rohnert Park areas. Nothing was more important to her than her family. She was a long time resident of Tomales until moving to Rohnert Park. She tended for many years to her late husband Peter who suffered from Multiple Sclerosis. Elsie was very proud of her Portuguese heritage and enjoyed serving a fine Portuguese meal to her sons-in-law Richard Clark and Ciro Estremo. During World War II, she supported the effort by being a 'Rosie the Riveter' in Richmond, CA. Elsie was a very active volunteer for the Veterans Services of Sonoma County. She was a parishioner at the St. Elizabeth Seton Catholic Church. She rarely missed attending the Sonoma County Fair and placed many a 'show' bet on the number four horses at the races at an annual family event where she will be missed. She was a great fan of tennis and golf and enjoyed watching the sports. A private Urn Side Service will be held at Tomales Catholic Cemetery. Donations in lieu of flowers to Sutter VNA & Hospice or the Northern California Chapter of the National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
