In lieu of flowers, let’s all go out and make the world a better place like Agnes did every day. She always had a smile, a kind word, she was full of fun and energy and always made a difference to all those she met.  When you see an old soul sitting outside a Home or Hospital, wave, or better yet….stop and say “Hello”. It will do you both a world of good.

My deepest sympathy to you all in the loss of a lady who was a true ray of sunshine and a force of nature in so many other ways. Her smile would light up a room and she did love to laugh. She was truly the "Spirit of No. Attleboro ". I was so glad to see her honored in that Christmas parade. May she rest in peace, though I am sure she is doing a lot of visiting and smiling in heaven, too.

She will be missed by anyone who knew her. Always a beautiful smile and caring words from her. She raised 7 wonderful kids whom I think the world of. It was an honor to attend her service last night and oh how she would have loved the grand send off you gave her. Agnes always loved company and a good Irish Wake and that she was given RIP my dear friend I will never forget you in the Santa Parade.

I didn't see mom often, but when I did she always put a bright smile on my face. She "had it". God bless. RIP.

My sincerest sympathies to you all. Agnes was a blessing to her family, her friends, her church and the town of North Attleborough. I loved her and will miss her smiling face. I will think of her always but especially at 4 o'clock Mass, at the library book sale, and the firetruck parade.

I did not have the pleasure of mom's company, but definitely see mom in her daughter, Lisa. Your legacy will live through all your beautiful children.

We were best friends first and forever. That she was also my Mom was the icing on the cake. Blessed we all were.

Being the middle Son out of 7 , Mom never showed any favorites . She always had enough love to go around . Her accolades are many . Just to ad a few extra , at 16 she was brave enough to let me drive on my permit ( frequently ) She kept a few secret's from my Dad for me . Supported my Skiing , my friends , my love of Horses all with enthusiasm . Her rowdy personality at the 4th of July Parades & being the Grand Marshall of the Christmas parade in 2015 are but a fraction of my fond memories of Mom . Blessed were we 7 Woodbury's for having had Agnes as our Mother . Our faith teaches us that we will one day be together again. Until then, rest in peace Mom & thank's for everything ! Love Jon
