Please share a memory of Agnes to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.
Agnes Delores Langhorne was born on December 15, 1945 in Riverhead, New York. She was the oldest child born to John Jasper and Mary Agnes Langhorne. After enduring an eight-year battle with multiple myeloma, God ordered her steps to join Him on April 1, 2022. Agnes, also known as Delores or Lo, accepted Christ at an early age and joined the Center Union Baptist Church under the leadership of the late Reverend Horace Montague. She was a faithful and supportive member for more than 60 years. Even during her illness, Agnes' faith never wavered. Agnes graduated from Pocahontas High School in Powhatan, VA in 1964 where she served as the Senior Class Treasurer. She also sang in the high school choir. In the early 70s, Agnes relocated to White Plains, NY and gained employment with the Woodland High School secretarial staff of Greenburgh, NY. On September 27, 1976, Agnes began working at General Motors in Tarrytown, NY. She retired after 20 years of dedicated service. Her last position was a Team Lead Inspector. In 1995, Agnes decided to move back home to Virginia to be close to family and friends. She continued to work during retirement at Ukrops and Foremost Sales for over 7 years. Agnes maintained long lasting relationships with many of her peers and co-workers. Agnes had numerous interests and passions. She treasured any and everything regarding family. She always visited the elderly, adored babies and the young, rejoiced in listening to gospel music, hosted countless family cookouts and absolutely enjoyed cooking. Her favorite dishes she prepared included: chocolate cake, sock-it-to-me cake, 7-Up cake, chopped barbeque, pig feet and potato salad, which she dubbed herself "The Professional Potato Salad Maker". Agnes also loved to play solitaire and watch TV game shows. The footprints of Agnes' life will be long remembered by those she leaves behind to cherish her memories: loving son, Aaron Langhorne of Napoleon, Ohio; loving granddaughter, LaQuana Bryant of North Chesterfield, VA; grandson, Kristopher Boysel of Wauseon, OH; great-grandson, Keymonta Bryant of North Chesterfield, VA; dedicated sister, Estelle Bailey of Henrico, VA; dedicated brother, Ronald Langhorne of Newport News, VA; devoted aunt, Nancy (Samuel) Moore of Olney, Maryland; a host of nieces, nephews, cousins and friends, especially lifelong and devoted cousins: Floyd Harris, Jr. of Dover Delaware, William (Mary) Evans of Chesterfield, VA, Darrell (Maria) Harris of Riverhead, NY and Alice Laura Ann (Grover) Easterling of Laurinburg, North Carolina; and devoted childhood neighbor and like a sister, Wanda (Clyde) Evans of Powhatan, VA. "Please Don't Mourn For Me" Please don't mourn for me; I'm still here. Though you don't see. I'm right by your side each night and day, And within your heart I long to stay. My body is gone but I'm always near; I'm everything you feel, see or hear. My spirit is free, but I'll never depart. As long as You keep me alive in your heart. I'll never wander out of your sight, I'm the brightest star on a summer night. I'll never be beyond your reach, I'm the warm sand when you're at the beach. I'm the colorful leaves when fall comes around, And the pure white snow that blankets the ground. I'm the beautiful flowers of which you're fond, The clear cool water in a quiet pond. I'm the first bright blossom you'll see in the spring; The first warm raindrop that April will bring. I'm the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine, And you'll see that the face in the moon is mine. When you start thinking there's no one to love you. You can talk to me through the Lord above you. I'll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees, And you'll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze. I'm the hot salty tears that flow when you weep, And the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep. I'm the smile you see on a loved one's face; Just look for me, I'm everyplace!!!
