After a three year period of hospitalization and skilled nursing, Agnes Marie Gehrhardt (LoBue) peacefully passed away, ending months of decline and now enjoying a better place not of this life.
She graduated Sacred Heart Elementary and then Notre Dame High School (Class of 1949) in San Jose, having been educated and influenced by the Notre Dame Sisters at both schools. During these young years of her life, she was a very accomplished classical pianist, practicing and playing on the piano that belonged to her Mother. She attended San Jose State University and finished her business studies at Healds Business College, thereafter spending most of her working years as a secretary and bookkeeper.
Her parents were Sal and Tanie LoBue, entrepreneurs and business professionals of San Jose from the 1930s, and she is survived by her brother Victor LoBue of Los Gatos, her daughter Francine Macahilas and son James Gehrhardt, both of Fort Bragg, CA, granddaughters Erica (and Levy) Early, Jessica (and Bryan) Lincoln, Carla Spaan, grandsons Jason Gehrhardt and Anthony Gehrhardt, and great grandchildren Bryson Fletter, Amaya and Serena Marie Lincoln.
