Agnes (Gallegos) Fahey
Died as she was preparing herself to attend a dinner with her family. She was born in Santa Rosa, New Mexico, moved to Washington DC as a teen and graduated from Immaculata College, Washington, DC. earning an AA degree.
Agnes will always be remembered for her kindness. She had an incredibly peaceful and loving demeanor that was instantly recognizable. She loved reading, movies, the Catholic church and mostly her family. She had an incredible talent for drawing and art. She was always generous with kind words of encouragement and an appreciation for a good, but clean, joke. All who knew her felt lucky to have her as part of their life.
What will be missed the most is her story telling. She loved to tell humorous anecdotal stories about her life experiences. She often could barely finish most stories as she would get an uncontrollable laughter about her recollections. Her quiet belly-laugh will be remembered fondly.
Agnes is survived by her six children, Daniel (Maria), Patrick, Donna, Timothy (Naveen), Joseph (Holly) and Kevin (Jody), her grandchildren Stephanie, Michael Brandon, Christina, Andrew, Jonathan, Alex, Allison, Kristin, Hayley and Shawn, and two great grandchildren, Annabelle Naumick (Allison & Brian) and Beck Sexton (Stephanie & Jon). Her husband, James Fahey predeceased her in 2016.
Agnes enjoyed her independence and peacefulness of her final few years.
