Obituary for Agnes Georgene Sollins

AGNES GEORGENE SOLLINS, 74, of Northglenn, Colorado, passed away on Thursday, September 29, 2011, in the presence of her family at her home that she has resided in since 1964. Daughter to the late Jean and Frank Emery, Agnes was the oldest of four (4) children. Agnes was born on December 23, 1936, in Baltimore, Maryland, at Mercy Hospital. She entered into a loving marriage with her husband, Stanford, on September 15, 1963, and the two of them were blessed with two loving children, Michael and Sherri. Agnes and Stan just celebrated 48 years of marriage.
Upon marrying and moving to Denver, Agnes was not wise to the world of home economics. Her first dinner party was nothing short o a disaster but she eventually got the hand of it and, as it turns out, became an excellent cook. She loved to entertain and her informal parties with friends were never complete without a fancy table and beautiful dinnerware. Oddly enough no Gentile could make a better matzos ball. In fact, Agnes made sure that every Jewish holiday was celebrated on Stans behalf even though she was a devote Catholic.
Mike and Sherri also took note and would celebrate their parents special occasions and, more than once, would plan the anniversary party, birthday party, or out-of-town trip for their mom and dad. Furthermore, the family would take summer vacations together, and a few memorable ones took place in Hawaii and San Diego. Of course, no summer would be complete without the week-long vacation to Vail which consisted always of walks through town, dinners by the fireplace and the challenging game of putt-putt golf.
Agnes and Stan were both raised in Maryland. The best vacations for mom were always visits with her sister, Pat and her husband, George. The four of them would drive to Amish country in Pennsylvania (which always turned out great for dad, he loved his treats) and just spent quality time with her sister.
Agnes is survived by her husband, Stan; her son, Michael Sollins; her daughter, Sherri Zengeler; her grandson, Zachariah Sollins whom she loved dearly; and one sister, Pat Spencer from Baltimore. Lets not forget Gracie, the four-legged family member. She will be dearly missed by her family, friends, and all those who were blessed to have Agnes as part of their life whether it be for a brief moment or for many years. Her spirit was strong, her personality happy and fun and there never was a more courageous, loving woman.
We will miss you wife, mother, grandmother, sister and friend. May God bless you and welcome you into His arms.
A Memorial Service for Agnes will be held on Monday, October 3, 2011, at 11:00AM, Immaculate Heart of Mary Roman Catholic Church, 11385 Grant Drive, Northglenn. Inurnment will follow later in the week on Thursday, October 6, at 1:00PM, Fort Logan National Cemetery, Staging Area A, 3698 South Sheridan Boulevard, Denver.
