A faithful Catholic, Agnes was a member of Holy Family Parish, Luzerne, where she sang in the parish choir.

Family was the center of Agnes’ life and she treasured every moment she shared with her loved ones. She most especially adored her granddaughter and great-grandchildren as they held a very special place in her heart.

In addition to her parents, Andrew and Pauline Walko, and her husband, Joseph, Agnes was preceded in death by her brothers, William and Thomas Walko.

Agnes is survived by her daughter, Paula Schnelly and her husband, Vincent Seiwell, Swoyersville; her granddaughter, Angela Schnelly and her partner, Rasool Breeden; her great-grandchildren, Laila and Elijah Schnelly; as well as generations of nieces and nephews.
