Agnes was born on August 30th, 1938 in Melrose to Leo and Monica (Herzog) Hinnenkamp. She married Jerome Wuebkers on July 10th, 1962 in Melrose. After marriage, the couple moved to a farm near St. Francis where she worked as a mother and home-maker until eventually retiring to Upsala in 2000. Agnes had many things she enjoyed in life. She was most proud of her beautiful gardens. She was a very active member of the St. Fracnis Sewing Circle, the Christian Mothers, and St. Francis of Assisi Catholic Church where she was also active in the choir and assisted with religion education. Because of her love of flowers and gardening, she was a member of the Stearns County Master Gardeners.
Agnes is survived by her loving children Charlene (Frank) Hohmann, Royalton; Kevin (Janice) Wuebkers, St. Francis; her seven grandchildren; and her siblings Ralph (Doris) Hinnenkamp, Melrose; Dorine (Greg) Nowak, Dayton, MN.
She is preceded in death by her parents Leo and Monica Hinnenkamp, and her husband Jerome Wuebkers who passed in January of 2008.
