Agnes grew up on the family farm southeast of Densmore, KS, where she attended Plainview School. In 1929, they moved to Bloomington, where her father worked at a dairy. After two years, they moved back to Densmore and lived on her Uncle John Kitzke’s farm. She graduated eighth grade and worked for her Uncle John at Kitzke Store in Densmore.
