A Memorial Service for Agnes was held March 14, 2013 at the Stevenson Funeral Home. Burial will be later this spring in the Dickinson Cemetery.
Agnes M. Fichter was born Oct. 19, 1948, the youngest daughter of Christ and Margaret (Roll) Fichter. She grew up in the Taylor area, graduating from Taylor High School in 1967. Agnes went to Kalispell, Mont. where she met John Kersich.
The couple was united in marriage July 20, 1968. To this union, two children were born. Agnes spent the next several years being a homemaker. After her children were raised, Agnes attended DSU and graduated in 1998. Agnes started working with the disabled and elderly and worked for many years at St. Luke’s Home in Dickinson. Agnes enjoyed cross-stitching, puzzles, reading and birdwatching. Her biggest pleasure in life was sharing good times with family and friends.
