Agnes Virginia Wilhelm, age 97, peacefully passed from this world on December 7, 2019. The wish to stay in her Englewood, Colorado home until her death was made possible by her youngest daughter, Elizabeth, who lovingly cared for her in her later years.
The celebration of her life will begin with a Rosary at 9:30, Friday morning, Dec. 13, 2019, followed by Mass, at St. Louis Catholic Church in Englewood, Colo.
She was born Agnes Virginia Kjar on Oct. 11, 1922 in a farmhouse near Lexington. One of eight children, she was the third daughter and seventh child of Hans Christian Kjar and Agnes Anna Kjar.
Agnes was a strong and resilient woman and a devoted mother to six children. Her first husband, Roy George Jorgensen, died in World War II when their eldest daughter was an infant. Agnes later married Edward John Wilhelm, and together they raised five additional children.
Agnes was a faith-filled woman, who was kind and generous to her family and friends. Her goal was to give her family a good life and throughout the years she worked tirelessly to raise her children well through example.
