Martha Marie Agee, 89, of Gaylord, passed away at her home on October 7, 2021, surrounded by her loving family.
Martha was born on September 22, 1932, to Edward and Philomena Schulte. She married the love of her life, Donald Paul Agee, on September 3, 1955. They were blessed with six children, ten grandchildren, and seven great-grandchildren. They had just celebrated their 66th wedding anniversary.
Martha was a great mother and grandmother. She worked for many years as a registered nurse. Upon moving to Gaylord, the huge garden and the family farm kept her busy while the children were young. Her passion for nursing was rekindled as the children grew older and she worked in that capacity until her retirement.
Donald and Martha fulfilled a lifelong dream when they built their dream home overlooking their beautiful property in Gaylord.
Martha was preceded in death by her son, Mark Lawrence Agee, of Centerline, MI.
She is survived by her loving husband, Donald; her children, David (Pam) Agee of Traverse City, Daniel (Renee) Agee of Cookeville, TN, Douglas (Kate) Agee of Plainfield, IL, Karen Agee of Gaylord, and Laura (Steve) Lanuti of Southern Pines, NC; ten grandchildren; and seven great-grandchildren.
Because of her love of the medical field and helping others, Martha had chosen to donate her body to science, for research. There will be a memorial service at a later date.
She will be greatly missed by those who knew her. Her corny jokes and deep chuckle could always make a person laugh.
The family takes comfort in knowing that she is now with her Heavenly Father and family that has gone before her. Surely upon her arrival into Heaven, she heard “Well done good and faithful servant.”
A Memorial Mass will be held on Thursday, November 4, 2021, at 2:00 p.m. at Holy Redeemer Church in Vanderbilt.
In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Holy Redeemer Church in Vanderbilt, through the Nelson Funeral Home, PO Box 1548, Gaylord, MI 49734.
