Agnes M. Deni­son

The Dundalk Eagle - - OBITUARIES -

Agnes, 1928-2018, long­time Dun­dalk res­i­dent, passed away peace­fully in her sleep, fol­low­ing a long ill­ness, on Septem­ber 1, 2018, four days shy of her 90th birth­day.

Agnes was born in Bal­ti­more to sec­ond gen­er­a­tion Pol­ish Amer­i­can par­ents. She grew up in Ft. Howard, MD dur­ing the Great De­pres­sion. In her teenage years, she met a hand­some young man at the roller­skat­ing rink and fell in love. When he was drafted into the Navy dur­ing WWII, she waited pa­tiently for him to re­turn as he wrote her let­ters from the Pa­cific. Agnes mar­ried Ver­non in 1947 and spent the next 71 years with her soul­mate. To­gether they trav­eled the world, from the tow­er­ing spires of St. Peters­burg, Rus­sia to the an­cient pyra­mids of Mex­ico.

In Oc­to­ber 1949, Agnes moved to Lib­erty Park­way in Dun­dalk, where she would live for 68 years, rais­ing their two chil­dren. Agnes loved her im­mac­u­lately-kept home, flow­ers, gar­den­ing and above all else her fam­ily, of whom she was fiercely pro­tec­tive. Later in life Agnes was an ac­tive mem­ber of the Red Hat So­ci­ety and the Women’s Club of Dun­dalk, serv­ing as Hos­pi­tal­ity Chair.

Agnes had a quiet de­meanor of­ten mis­taken for shy­ness, sharp wit, and a keen sense of hu­mor. She was hap­pi­est car­ing for those she loved, which in­cluded her many friends and fam­ily mem­bers.

At fam­ily gath­er­ings, Agnes re­fused to take her own seat un­til she was sat­is­fied every­one around her was happy.

She is pre­ceded in death by her par­ents, Joseph and Agnes Tom­czewski and her sib­lings: twin He­len Tom­czewski, Thomas and Wil­liam Tom­czewski, Dorothy Forster, Kather­ine Piper, Joseph Tom­czewski, Martin Tom­czewski and Stan­ley Tom­czewski.

Agnes is sur­vived by her beloved hus­band of 71 years, Ver­non Deni­son; son David V. Deni­son and wife, Donna; daugh­ter Carol D. McBeth and hus­band, John; grand­chil­dren Dou­glas Deni­son and wife, Sarah, Me­lynda McBeth, Kelly McBeth and hus­band, Joe Ste­wart; sis­ter Frances Dorsch and brother Ge­orge Tom­czewski and wife Sharon; as well as many nieces, neph­ews and ex­tended fam­ily.

A Funeral Ser­vice was held on Thurs­day, Septem­ber 6, 2018 and she was laid to rest in Oak Lawn Ceme­tery. Me­mo­rial con­tri­bu­tions may be made to the Women’s Club of Dun­dalk: c/o Anita Becker, 1601 Del­vale Ave., Dun­dalk, MD 21222.
